    For helping me make my amp choice.

    As a new bass player, I wanted to get a decent amp but didn't want to incur the National Debt in doing so. I first determined I needed a combo amp, then that it had to have a 15" speaker. After that, it was a matter of how much power I could afford. I thought about Crate, Fender, Roland and others. After much research here and scouring the music stores, I decided on the Ashdown MAG300 combo (C115-300). It is the bee's knees!

    I did read about a time frame wherein units marked "Made In England" were actually made in China before they got new nameplates made up. I have contacted Ashdown to verify by my serial number if mine was indeed made in the U.K. (need a prayer thingie here...)

    I got a hell of a deal from Huber & Breese in Detroit. I make it a habit to support the locals no matter where I am or what I am buying. I was in D-Town on business and had purchased mucho drum gear from these guys. It only followed I would approach them for bass gear as well.

    $400 out the door :hyper:

    Go see "Rage" and tell him Alan from C-Bus sent you!
