Reviews and Problems with Behringer ULTRABASS BXL900
Showing 1-10 of 14
Decent amp. Needs a pedal to meet its full potential
19 January 2012
Summary: I received this as a gift Christmas of 2010 and it has served me well over the last year. However, like the other reviewers, I was surprised that it was not as loud as I expected it to be. Lo and behold, I received a Bass Big Muff Pi pedal this year and the boost it gives the signal makes a HUGE difference with this amp.
Summary: Good for practice. The regular channel is nice and clear. I run it with a Tech 21 preamp and it's very responsive. The enhanced channel is a little limited and at least with my current setup, the Ultrabass feature has too many overtones to be useful. If you were performing, you'd probably want preamps / effects pedals to handle these features.
Summary: It is May. I bought this in January and it is dying already. The amp is starting to make popping noises and the sound is getting muddy. Too bad for the price was right, but the quality is very poor. That is probably why GC was discounting these amps so much. ------------------------------ Scott Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Summary: It has some cool features like the Ultrabass effect(which pretty much is an octave effect). and i love the auxillary input for an ipod or cd player. It sounds good for what its meant to do...practice. not meant for shows unless with a DI. just not enough power for a whole 90 watts. I would not recommend it unless you are looking for something to practice with. If you need a serious gigging combo amp, save up a little more.
Summary: I just recently bought this amp in April, and so far it's pretty nice. I've been one of the lucky few to have good luck with Behringer Amps in the past, so I gave this one a shot. The sound quality is very nice, 7-Band EQ is a great sound shaper. Ultra-Bass is good for those high solos, nothing else. Only problem I've had so far is this internal buzzing on some high notes through the amp. Other than that, pretty satisfied so far.
Summary: I have outgrown my 15Watt, 8 inch practice amp and was looking for something I could practice with, was portable, and had decent tone. After looking at a bunch of specs and reviews I decided on this one. For the price it is great! Good sound that really growls and rattles all the spars in the basement drop ceiling and loud enough to do some jams with. ------------------------------ Scott Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Summary: I bought this amp after reading reviews on Harmony Central. I was, as usual, pleasantly surprised by Behringer. Great range for a bass amp. Sorry but , I've yet to sink my teeth in it, but so far it has everything I need for a "practice amp" for my 5 string Ibenez. I wouldn't do a gig with it unless I had to, but a great small practice amp.
Summary: I was surprised at 90 watts how much the amp did NOT put out volume wise. For practice or small venues it will work fine. The compact wedge design is great which gives it a "fold back" positioning making it easier to discern the sound. It has two channels but no foot switch connection. This is a glaring over sight for those that want to set both channels and switch back and forth during a song or set.
Summary: I bought this for my 15 year old son. He has a garage band with his buddys and I'm sure they are all going to be rock stars. He loves this amp. Its not too heavy to hall around and plenty loud to annoy the parents. The price was right.
