    I really need to get a new amp this christmas since i've started gigging alot recently and the little Roland Cube 30 isn't up to the job. I've asked someone I know and he said that for my six string, I should be using 10" and 15" speakers to get the best sounds. I'm looking at around £300-400 for the amp but I'm not sure which one, I just want one which is loud. I've seen a few that i'm interested in though:




    I'm very stuck, i've heard great things about ashdowns but the Behringer has a 15" and 2x10" speakers. I'm also not sure what the advantage of more speakers (referring to the ashdowns) would be

  2. I've got an Ashdown Mag and I've played the Behringer rig in a store. Hands down, get an Ashdown. The one problem I have with the combos you indicated is that they weigh a great deal, especially the 410. This may matter more to me than to you. I have a 115 combo and at 30 kg I'm near the limit of what I want to load out after a gig. The 410 combo weighs 44.5 kg according to Ashdown's website.

    weight ok as I've always got a friend to help me. What would the difference between the 2x10 and 4x10 be?

    No on the Berhinger. In Europe, another good choice to look at would be a Warwick.

    I endorse & use Tech 21 pedals, Eminence loaded cabs, EMG pickups, Jim Dunlop picks & Ernie Ball Strings, BC Rich Basses.
    I thought those were ALL pics of Ashdown amps, then I looked closer! I used an Ashdown head recently. It sounded ok. I also would not use Behringer.

    or markbass... remarkably light apparently. never played one, as they are not very common in the states...
  8. All Warwick combo's now use NEO speakers - so weight is a lot lighter. But warwicks' will tend to soak up a few dollars more.

    Check out some 2nd hand Peavey heads - they're a lot better than their reputation suggests, and they're usually dirt cheap.

    Spec ur selling your rig? Why may I ask? are you done playing bass?
  10. Yeah, Jim, what's going on? I saw your amp and cabinet on e-bay. Kind of surprised to see you selling them so soon.
