Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

gk backline. they have a built-in distortion channel and a line out to plug into a pa if you need more power

Dont buy a behringer, and also, 180w is like the minimum you will need for a small gig, so i would suggest getting something a little bigger.

General consensus on the lower end GK models i.e backline, is that they have poor build quality, and are slightly lacking in tone.

TS, can you give us a budget that you havr to buy the amp with, and what style of music you play.

The ashdown MAG 4x10s are pretty nice, and if you have a little more cash then perhaps a Hartke, or G (not backline series) rig...

I would say the most I want to pay is $350. I'm going to be playing hard rock. (Something in the range of Led Zeppelin to Nirvana)

I can get a perfect Novoselic tone out of my Hartke and a p bass

I just picked up a Peavey TNT 115 200watt. Suits me down to the ground. Albeit extremely weighty.

i have never tried the TNT series, but i played the max series 115, and it was absolutely god god awful.


Ah I've never tried the max series. My dad's guitar supplier found this TNT for me, and it was pretty sick so I got that.

But TS...

Look for a second hand one of those. I picked mine up for £175 second hand.

This seems like a good deal.

I looked online, couldn't find any reviews. Also the condition is refurbished. Should I steer clear?



yeah, I wouldn't trust a refurbished amp. They find enough ways to break new without being refurbished on top. And I wouldn't get it, a 208 (28? 2x8? whatever) speaker configuration wouldn't be too great. Check out kustom, the 200W series are very good, and kustoms seem to sound far louder than they should :P

115C

this head doesn't seem to have many knobs, but I do want all the same.

fifthorsoedit: tour combo I've heard a lot of good about the tour heads, and this might be worth the wait of a month or whatever it is now to get it

Actually the Backline 600 has some surprisingly good reviews. And you can find it on Ebay and classified for under $100.

Just look at it's review at Guitar Center, Musicians Friends..
http://reviews.harmony-central.com/reviews/Bass+Amp/product/Gallien-Krueger/Backline+600+Head/10/1



If those reviews came from harmony central, then i would be inclined to take them with a pinch of salt. That site has reviews with people raving about behringer amps for god sakes

as for the refurb ampeg, i wouldnt really go for that, a 2x8 speaker configuration would be a bit lacking in low end really.
