    me too but they are a little expensive for me now,remember i go for new bass Fender,new stand,new strap,new tunner,new care kit,new everithyng :rollno:
     
  7. A friend of mine had one of these, sounds like a pile of **** to be honest, was horribally horribally crap, in that my Peavey Rage158 sounded better for bass (and its a 15 watt g****r amp!)

    Look into peavey bass amps, the TNT combo is good, but you could probably buy a second hand half stack for fairly cheap and be set for a fair time !
     
  8. If you can afford a new TNT, you might as wel go for an ashdown MAG.


    Anyway, you're wasting your money on 100w if you want to gig. You'll have problems if your drummer is anywhere near loud. I've heard the five-fifteen and its nice to play if you're playing alone (or maybe with 1 guitar), but nothing more.
     
  9. meh, but look at a second hand half stack, thats what id say, the 100 watt combo wont be much use for long i dont think

    Kustom makes both a 65W and a 100W combo amp. I have the 65W for practice and it puts out enough sound to go with a drummer and guitar. I've put the knobs all the way and still haven't hit the threshhold of fart. The 100W is only maybe 100 dollars more than the 65W and will be fine at small gigs I'm sure.
