what amp?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Stu hamm rules!, Aug 5, 2002.


  1. i currently own a carlsbro bassline50 (50W) which is just about ok to be heard in practices (i'm in a metal band, guitarist has a 50w amp and drummer plays loud) but the sound is very fuzzy and unclear, espesially with finger picking.

    I need an amp which will either already hold up in small/medium gig situations or is good for small and can be upgradeable for larger gigs.

    I want to spend about £500 ($710 ish). should i get a combo or a stack? i found an ashdown mag 200w combo for £375 ($515), is this a good deal?

    what should i get? is it a good idea to go second hand?

    well that choice is up to you on the combo/stack issue.

    I myself prefer stacks or rackmout rigs. for the purpose of upgradability.


    just play as many amps of each kind as you can, and go with whatever one sounds best to you.
