Ok so I recently had a behringer 45 watt amp and played it in a band in practice and the sound was drowned by the drums. Maybe not at full volume, but it created ugly distortion that way.
I was thinking of leaning towards galien krueger amps, I like their punchy tone, but I don't know if I should get the Gallien-Krueger Brat Pack Half-Stack 125 watt for 299 $ http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/GallienKrueger-Brat-Pack-HalfStack-Bass-Amp-Package?sku=482546 or the Gallien-Krueger Backline 100 watt for the same price. http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/GallienKrueger-Backline-112-Bass-Combo?sku=482537 . First I was sure I was going to buy the half stack but I read a review saying that it its really sucky. So I was going to buy the backline amp but one comment said that it couldnt really be heard over the drums. Is that true? a 100 watt amp?
Which one should I buy?
Neither of those are particularly good. I would save up a bit more. 400-500 bucks open up tons of new options.
100-125W won't get you as far as you'd think. Save up so you can get something with bit more oomph.
