Summary: I've had this head for 3 years now (I didn't think I have had it so long but looking at the date code I guess so). I originally got it because I didn't have money and my old amp died on me. I later ended up upgrading to a Ampeg SVT-3 Pro and Ampeg 8x10, but after a couple months I actually sold the Ampeg SVT-3 Pro and made the Behringer my main head (the other members in my band actually preferred the Behringer over the Ampeg as well).
Pros: CHEAP, good tone, stright forward controls, CHEAP, compact, reliable, XLR DI out, effects loop/tuner, free footswitch, and did I mention CHEAP?
Summary: Good overall quality of the sound. Been playing it through an ancient Roland 15-in PA Speaker Cab with ginormous porcelain horn. Makes that thing sound great, even on the low B. Only trouble is the cab distorts when Gain and Output are beyond 1/4 turn. So, more a drawback of the cab than the amp. And this speaker is at 8 ohms. I recently ordered the Gallien-Krueger 210BXL from MF and we'll see what happens then.
Summary: The 300 watt amp is not being build anymore. I have bought the 450 watt BX4500H 6 months ago, and it is great! Sound is super, and it is even louder than the 300 watt amp. I can keep up with a full stack Marshall with my master volume at 1/4. I don't use the (very good looking) footswitch. because the shape-function sounds so good that I don't want to turn it off and I think the Ultra bass thing is unusable.
Summary: Ive played through an Acoustic 100w head with a matching 2x15 cab for about 10 years, until i joined the current band.The Acoustic stack just didnt have enough to keep up with a Mesa halfstack lol. So i decided to get something a little more powerful. The Behringer unit fit the bill with 300w, multiple speaker outs and a post-EQ DI output that sounds great. The price was almost too good.
Pros: Solid construction, Great tone control and plenty of power.
Summary: I reviewed this amp before but I just replaced it and now have a high end system to compare it too. How does it compare? well, like a high end amp. Its really super clean punchy and powerfull. Im amazed more people dont love this thing. I bet if it cost $500 people would be flocking towards it. It really has the modern clean bass sound, some people refer to as HI-Fi I beleive. Anyways, I sold it for 170 on ebay and really regret it.
Pros: great sound, really really clean great sound, price
Summary: I\'ve had this head and the paper cone 2X10 cabinet for about a year. I haven\'t regretted it at all, at the time I didn\'t have that much money, but needed more punch. If I had more money I would have passed on this deal. Wow, everywhere I\'ve been people can\'t believe how this thing sounds. Lots of power and tone.
Summary: I tried this head with several different cabs including Trace Elliot, Peavey, Bergantino, and up to an Ampeg 810. I was amazed at the tone this amp produces. I was also surprised it could push the 810 really hard before distorting. I didn\'t hear the noise that si-fidelity mentioned. The overall sound was very sweet and usable. The SubBass feature to me isn\'t that useful. There are probably some uses for it though.
Pros: Price, good tone, and several different tone shaping tools
Summary: I\'ve been playing bass for about 4 years now. I\'m still in high school but have had a couple of gigs under my belt. I must say, as a musician on a tight budget, with and income of about like 20 bucks a month, this thing is the best you can get for the price. This thing is loaded with features. The VU meter is pretty awesome and has slots for both passive and active instruments. It has bass middle and treble along with 140 and 1.6 hz adjustable knobs.
Pros: Lots of power, flexible tone, very versatile, simple & easy to use, compact, reliable, DI out, effects loop/tuner, free footswitch, and both low and hi freq. boost
Summary: My old peavey was actin up so I took the plunge for a new amp. I drive an old 1810 with replaced drivers and a 115 cab. Total 4 ohms. This thing is SO loud. Its the same power as my peavey mk3 but way louder. The shape feature is awesome. It can be turned on and off with the included pedal. It really adds LOADS of body to the sound. Ultrabass is a joke. It could be used with the right settings but it sounds hoaky.
