    I've got about $6-700 and want to get a 2x10 combo amp. Have been considering the Fender Bassman 250 and the Yorkville XS400T. Anyone with thoughts about these two or anything else in that price range?

    yes indeed.
  5. I've played through both the 2x10 and 1x15 Bassman combos and think they're pretty good.

    I know you said 2x10. But you may want to consider the Avatar B212. I recently bought this along with Hartke HA3500 head. I spent less the $700 and am very happy thus far...

    If you can find yourself a decent head and cab you will be much more happier with it than a combo.
  8. I had 2 different Fender Bassman 2x10 amps & they both created such a problem - I opted to just skip the combo phase & go straight to a head/cab rig. I got a Kustom Groove Bass 1200 head "B" stock for $390 & picked up an Avatar 2x10 Kappa Pro.... after I paid that & saved a lil more, I got an Avatar 2x12 Delta. Now I have a Peavey Classic 400... go check out www.avatarspeakers.com -- Dave is great to work with & you will find a deal with him. For the money -- you just can't beat Avatar cabs. Plus you can several heads from them at a very, very good price.

    Check out some of the Eden Nemesis line... the 210 is quite nice.
