  1. I'll try again here...the response to my original post was certainly most underwhelming :(

    Someone did post recently about the Roland Bass amp I was considering.. so that's a partial answer....

    Anyone have any experience with the Tech 21 Landmark 60? If so please share your thoughts...

    I used the older wedge model with a 10" speaker for a while. Worked fantastically as a monitor/DI but I wouldn't want to use it as a main rig. In small situations, maybe but next to a drummer that plays anywhere near aggressively, forget it -- the 110" in a small cab just doesn't do it. I found it farted out a lot at high volumes but, for low volumes and DI stuff, it was great.

    I had been shopping recently for a small practice amp that I could use at small gigs. I did a wine bar gig with a guitarist and five weeks ago. I brought the 30 watt Behringer that had been kicking around the house for four years. It works but sounds pretty crappy. I got to thinking about selling a bunch of gear and putting it into a decent small unit. I tossed around getting a Yamaha BTT110S to use with my MarkBass head. My drummer suggested I get a combo in off chance the Markbass died and a I needed an amp. Good advice I figured, so I upped the anti and started to look for 100-120 watts. Size was important to me and I wanted either a 1-10 or a 1-12 and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. I had never heard of the Roland CB100 until a couple of weeks back. There were a couple for sale on a local French version of Talkbass. I started researching and it seemed to accomplish everything.

    My advice to you is to consider the benefit of a slight power increase to extend the capability of a combo unit. The Ashdown 12-180 is another interesting affordable 180 watt 1-12 combo to consider.

    I played the Tech 21 for a 2 years as a practice/apt amp. It's a great amp for direct out recording and low-med volume playing. I don't think I can say a bad comment about this amp. It's a practice amp. For what it is, it's probably the best in it's range. I'll also add that the Sansamp emulater preamp is awesome. The manual comes with a list of 10 settings for different "sounds"... it really sounds amazing for a small kick amp. The King Crimson setting is my fav... I love John Wetton's tone on Red and Starless.... this amp hits the tone.
  5. thanks for the replies. I'll look in to the Ashdown amp. It sounds like the amps I'm considering are all good ones.

    Thanks again.

    I bought and returned a tech21 landmark60. because I felt it was too "boxey" sounding. I eventually went with an RBI/power amp and aguilar gs112 cab, MUCH BETTER. not as light of course, but not as boxey.

    the roland bass 100 is slightly boxey and has lots of tone gizmo's.

    if you can spend TWICE as much as for the combo, find a used cab and head. if you can check out used yorkville combos 100w+....
