    So I've been thinking about picking up the BT500 version of the Terror, more than enough power for the classic rock band I'm in. However I've got possible dibs on a BT1000 for actually slightly less money. Would I be stupid not to go for the 1000? I didn't know if there were any quality issues associated with the BT1000 that the BT500 doesn't have. Can't hurt to have the extra power!

    No experience with the TB1000 but I love my TB500. I bought it as a back up for my vintage Hiwatts and for smaller gigs, it is fast becoming my favorite amp. I paired it with two of the 115s. Sounds awesome.

    For the same cash, no, it would not hurt to roll with the Terror Bass 1000.

    That being said, I'm amazed at the volume capabilities of the Terror Bass 500! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :cool:

    Thanks guys! I've found a place that is selling a limited number of NIB BT1000's for $100 less than the going rate of new BT500's, just seems like an offer I shouldn't refuse.
