Good Little practice amp

Spider Johns "- Spider Johns", amazon.com
25 December 2011
  • Summary: I've been playing guitar for a while now and decided this fall to take up bass. Since I didn't want to blast the neighbors out of their house before I learned to do too much on it, I understood a practice amp was more appropriate for my needs than anything else. This is not the amp you're looking for if you want to play along with your guitarist and drummer in a crowded bar, and the only negative review I've read should have recognized that before jumping into buying...

Overpriced, no bang for your buck

  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS. I made the mistake of buying this as a starter amp 3 years ago. First of all, this thing is insanely overpriced. For $150 you can get an amp in the 100-200 watt range. This amp is a puny 15watts. The amp buzzes past volume level of 8. My input jack broke after 1 year, it was very cheap. This thing will not be loud enough to jam with a guitarist and drummer, it is only good for playing alone.

  • Summary: This is my first bass amp so I can't judge well. It has a 3-channel EQ, gain knob, and on/off button. It comes with everything you need to hook it up right away (except an instrument cable). There are some RCA type I/Os in the back ("tape" which I thought I could use to hook up to my PC audio interface but it didn't work. I guess they're for something else. There's also a headphone out in the back. It's lightweight and has a nice vintage look.
  • Pros: EQ, vintage look
  • Cons: ?

nice amp but

  • Summary: does not work for an Electronic Yamaha drum-set - the kick is not punchy enough. Not a fault of the amp - was hoping that a bass amp should work for an electronic drum but nopes! Settled for the Logitech Z2300 instead which works beautifully on the drum set.

  • Summary: I learned this amp is made by hand in Germany after I purschased it, and I wasnt suprised, I basically bought it because of the great craftmanship and even great sound quality. Great for home practicing, no regrets.

Looks great and works great

Charles S. Carrieri "Bass Man", amazon.com

  • Summary: The look is great on this amp, but then I plugged it in. Window rattling bass with no strain in the tone or weird tin can sound, just smooth loud bass. I am impressed, use it now at home over my exspensive amp because it is plenty loud.

  • Summary: This combo amp is really amzing considering it only cost $80. I had it for the first year of my playing and it would wake up the neighbors! That little 8" speaker was actually really warm and tight sounding. DON'T KNOCK IT 'TIL YOU TRY IT! Sure, it's only made for practicing. Get over it... I highly recommend it for your first bass amp.
  • Pros: Warm Bass Tone, Price, Size, Built Like a Tank, Reliable
  • Cons: Underpowered (It's a PRACTICE combo)

Nice little amp for practicing & home recording

Rick H, amazon.com
24 September 2009
  • Summary: This little amp has very good sound and is great for both bass & electric guitar. And if you have a good effects box with your electric guitar, it's even more fun. The volume probably isn't going to disturb anyone unless you turn it up too high and they're in the next room sleeping.

very nice for what it is, great value

  • Summary: I play a 76 PBass, and had a Peavey TKO amp which was just too big and heavy for practice. Gave it to a friend and thought I'd try an actual practice amp. I shopped around and looked at offerings from Peavey, Orange, Pig Nose, and Behringer. I like the features on the Behringer, the sound is surprisingly good, and the various inputs and outputs are very useful ( line in and out for iPod, metronome, recording; headphone jack). Also like the old school looks.
