    You guys know your amps, is the Minx 110 any good?

    I cant find any ampeg or carvin amps around. Would this be a suitable amp for a beginner?

    When I started playing bass I got a Minx 110. IMO they sound better than most other practice amps and they last forever. The good thing about the Minx 110 is it is a little more powerful than most other practice amps, so it can actually be useful outside of your bedroom.
     
  3. The minx is a pretty decent practice amp. Like Phat Ham said, they are a little bigger than most practice amps, and cheap too.

    For a beginner, i would say its a great choice. I know, because im a beginner too! :)
     
  4. I own a Minx 110 and it is a delight to play. Loud enough for living room practice and has nice tone. You can carry it with one hand, and your bass in the other. They are plentiful on eBay.

    I agree. It was my first amp also. I used it for some not so loud rehearsals and it worked fine. I had to replace the input jack after a couple years but besides this minor problem it has held up great.
     
  6. Good enough for a starter, and isnt that expensive either. The major plus is that it has the headphone outs for silent playing.

  7. I owned one way back, I paid $271 canadaian for it. What do they go for now? Anyways I also owned a Peavey TNT almost at the time and I always prefered the minx. It is One of the few Peavey amps I actually liked. Well for practicing or low volume practicing. They are fairly loud too, oh..wait did someone not already say all this?

    I have one and I have no complaints. I hate almost every Peavey I've played except for that one. You definetely wouldn't regret buying it if you need a practice amp.
