  • Summary: I bought this along with the Behringer BA410 cabinet - the total price coming in just under $1000 after taxes. You can't build a bass stack at that price with any other brand. Low prices can often be an indication of poor design but considering I was working on a very limited budget and wanted to...
  • Pros: Great tone, straight forward controls, affordable
  • Cons: Not serviceable, ultrabass subharmonics are poor, cheap plastic parts

  • Summary: I prefer the slide controls versus knobs for equalization but at this price who cares? I added an equalization pedal with slides and all is well. As everyone else says the Ultrabass function is a gimmick and it didn't cost anymore and you don't have to use it.
  • Pros: Power, price and sound.
  • Cons: Heavy and dials are tough to reset accurately to duplicate sounds.

  • Summary: I am a definate fan of this head, i just bpught it recently for the second time. I sold my previous one to a friend because i finally got the Ampeg svt that I had long wanted. I myself dont feel that the ultrabass function is the best synth or sub octo deal out there by far but being a bass player...
  • Pros: beast of a bass head at the price point
  • Cons: the ultrabass could have better control

  • Summary: First off, this is a 450w bass head for less than £200. That makes it quite impressive already. Added to that the list of controls and functions and it becomes more impressive all the time. I run it through a Hartke 410TP at 8ohms giving 290w.
  • Pros: Cheap, simple, good range of controls & functions.
  • Cons: Post EQ DI, touchy preamp, Ultrabass function.

awesome little amp!

  • Summary: had mine for about 5 years now. don't gig with it but practice plenty, and has never let me down. has generous tone-shaping tools and deep, powerful bass with power to spare. only option i don't use much is the ultrabass feature, which adds an octave deeper than you're playing.

Power and tone

  • Summary: This has better tone than my 500 watt Hartke. The 2 button foot switch is hooked to useful effects. I like the Ultrabass set below about 2, and leave it off most of the time. The Shape sounds good on about 5. I skip the bright and deep, they add more noise than good tone.
