Thinking about getting a New Bass Amp...

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Martyman, Dec 27, 2017.


  1. Hey All, I am currently using with my band at practices my old Yamaha BB100II half stack with an EV-300 watt speaker in it. I have been playing with this amp since I bought it in 1982. It still has a great sound and I just cannot find any other amp to beat the dang old reliable. About 5 years ago, I purchased an Ampeg B115 and recently replaced the Chinese Eminence with a real Eminence Legend. I still cannot get the sound(s) I am looking for and really have never been happy with the Ampeg. I am on a budget and I cannot go out and just buy anything to replace the Ampeg. Do you guys and gals out there have any suggestions for the kind of bass combo amp I should really consider buying to replace my Ampeg?

    I'm sure we all have the same questions for you:

    1. Why not use what you like and currently have (The Yamaha)?
    2. What music do you play?
    3. Who do you want to sound like?
    4. What bass do you play?
    5. Do you need it as a Monitor, or to fill a room?
    6. What's your budget?
