Yorkville Bass Amps

I see Yorkville bass amps all the time used for a lot less than amps with the same wattage. Is this because they're inferior?

No, they're just a small company that wants recognised as a big player in the amp industry so they sell as cheap as they can. Basically they don't jack up the price as much as other suppliers do.
They use Eminence speakers, which are a very popular (and trusted) brand.

Not that any of this makes them better or worse, you'd have to a/b compare it to a more expensive amp to see for yourself.

Thanks! Maybe I'll look into some used Yorkville amps.

I know 2 people who have 1x15 Yorkville combos. They are pretty diecent amps, and sound good for how cheap they are.
