Marshall Bass Amps?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by heath_the_great, Feb 4, 2006.


  1. i was just wondering, how come not many people use marshall bass amps, i mean, the only person ive really seen use one is damon minchella of paul weller on the studio 150 dvd and i think he sounds pretty good on that...but then again i am a fan of damon and paul

    Is "pretty good" good enough?
     
  3. well peavey is enough for me, does that answer your question:D ....

    i was just curious cos i dont see many people use them, is there something ive missed about them?, no stores ive seen other bass amps seem to stock marshall bass stuff

    Marshall bass amps aren't common by any means. I've know of ONE VBA400 head in the States. More common in England I guess.

    Although great for guitar, I've played some Marshall bass gear - and frankly, I'd rather have Peavey...

    I'd play Peavey long before I'd play a Marshall bass amp.
