    I agree on the remove, but not on the add.

    Trace Elliot V series.

    "Six classic bass amps for sale on our website and why you should buy them now."

    NOT seen - all the classic amps that they don't showcase for sale.

    Meh.

    And they got the Acoustic amp description wrong. They list it as a 200 watt head. Thats not an amp on top. It's a preamp. Im surprised a site like that got it wrong.

    The list doesn't include the GK 800RB. But it has Markbass? Lol. I mean no offense the MB at all, but I don't think they've quite reached "classic" status yet.

    I totally agree...the 800RB is a gross oversight.

    Not too sure on the last three. Also, I'd like to see something by GK on there.

    Hmmmm okay, MarkBass? How about Aguilar DB750/1 if you want to list a "modern classic?!"

    Of course, this only works as long as each of us get to choose which are "the two important ones"! :roflmao: (My vote is the 2 Ampegs (one of each downstairs), followed by TE V8, (only a V6 :() followed by not much.) :thumbsup:
