    The headphones amp could be a good a idea...
    I had one but I didn't like ...
    I dont' know this Pandora..

    I'm looking for a small COMBO (..very small..)
    but with a good sound (and strong..!) in
    headphones..

    10 watt ampli (like ibanez) are enough
    power ???

    (thank you very much for reply)
     
  4. I tried out the Behringer (sp?) 108 and the Peavey MicroBass, and I prefered the MicroBass. The 108 had more growl, but too much midrange tone. The bottom end was definately lighter. The Peavey sounded much more full, round, "bassy". I definately preferred it.

    As for headphones - not sure how the microbass sounds yet. I'll tell you in a few days when I get my AT's.

    Of course this is all "in my opinion". :cool:

    Another vote for the MicroBass. Sounds awesome through the phones and sports very well on it's own. We're talking 'practice' amp here, so you're not going to get the end-all-be-all bass tone, but for running through scales, playing with CD's, or working your way through 'Standing in the Shadows of Mowtown', ( :cool: ), it's a hard little amp to beat. They can be had very reasonably through ebay...

    Another vote for the Microbass. Had mine for years. Excellent practice amp.
