What bass combo amps are made in the USA?
The Mesa Boogie Walkabout immediately comes to mind. I believe that Phil Jones and Genz make combo amps as well.
Ampeg Heritage series
Vintage or Current?
Ampeg Heritage B-15.
Where an amp is manufactured is less important than how it sounds, and what features it includes.
The $4,000 combo amp.
This. I play three US-made combos. Two from 1967 and one from more recent times. Just sayin'
The $4000 combo amp that has sold 150 units so far and would sell even more if they made more
old Peavey's ...
For some reason PT Barnum comes to mind?
Designed in Great Britain, built in USA.
715X, 1210 & 1215.
that could apply to the color of a bass as well. Of course the color will have no affect on the tone. But we all have our preferences. Right?
Speaking as someone who lost a good paying job with benefits to outsourcing, I will never knowingly buy a non-USA made anything, except, as is the case with some pedals and synths, there is no domestic equivalent.
And I will certainly pay extra for domestically produced gear if I need to. Hence my Musicman and Mesa love affair.
i'm reasonably certain the phil jones products are u.s.a. designed but manufactured in china.
Always with the shots. What's up with you, Jon? You used to be nice.
For that gouge in the wallet it better be made in heaven.
You Funny Jimmy!
But I never used to be nice. Jon always was
And to answer the OP Question
First that comes to mind is the already mentioned and amazingly versatile MESA Walkabout.
You didn't ask for best or cheapest or anything...which is great!
I want to know too!
(I love combo's).
Gallien Krueger and Ampeg Heritage are not Made in USA.
They are "Assembled in USA" which means they don't have enough US made parts in them to qualify for Made in USA status.
