Well, I traded some of my guitar rig for a bass rig, so now I have this:




A Peavey Fury V and...



A full stack!

I plan on upgrading the head as soon as possible, as it is a Behringer BX3000T, which aint all that bad, but Ill probably get an Ampeg come tax return time.

It plays real nice, it's an older one, I was told it was 34" but I think it is 35" because the low B string is not floppy at all, I can drop it down to A and is still tight, I wish it had more frets, but no big deal, it sounds real nice, and the 3 band active EQ is pretty cool, all in all it was a decent deal.

I've been wanting a 5 string for a while so anything catches my interest.

Sorry about the behringer head and backline cab. Been down that road myself and know just how crappy it can be.


There's no need to jump on the Behringer bashing bandwagon, there's nothing wrong with it. Personally I dont care much for it, but its not a bad head, its a pretty good workhorse of an amp, and the backline aint bad either, I do like the GK NEO cab, that cab alone was worth more than one of the guitars I traded it for.

I like that dude.
The bass looks super nice.
And that rig will provide the volume most application.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

For starters, I traded a Bugera stack and a guitar for it, and honestly the head works for what I need it for, Ill upgrade soon, but Im in no big hurry. The bass is nice, plays great, none of the strings are floppy, and the active electronics work nicely. The rig has got some serious thump to it.

I'm not on any bandwagon; I love behringer and even got new behringer stuff for Christmas. I've probably owned more behringer gear than 95% of users on UG. All of that aside, the BX amps are bad and there's plenty of the things wrong with them.

I've also owned one and played through plenty of other backline cabs, lackluster drivers to say the least. All of this from personal experience of someone who you could probably call a behringer fan boy.

Please continue.

1. Over-rated for power
2. Intermittently noisy
3. The EQ controls are set at frequencies where they don't do you a lot of good.
4. The extra features like bright and shape give you extra control that starts to make up for the terrible eq, but they are completely lame and poorly incorporated in their own right.
5. Ultrabass mode--bad tracking, much more tricky to make use-able than an octave should be.
6. If you tear that thing apart you'll very likely see a world built out of hot glue and thoughtlessly routed wires(which probably contribute to some of them being noisy). This was the case with my bx4500, but who knows maybe others get luck with the quality of assembly.

My main gripe is 3: the tone stack is horrible and leaves this amp sounding thin with almost any setting on the eq. I finally dialed in some useable tone using the shape knob, but it was far too much work for a single passable sound and eliminated being able to use the shape control as the footswitchable channel it was designed to be.

Other folks have cited reliability issues with the bx4500 and bx1800 lines, but I never had single problem in that department so I'll give behringer the benefit of the doubt on that one. Some behringer lines are sturdy, some are shoddy and break easily, I've owned both, so I'm always leery even when a product has been performing well.

My Behringer BRX1800H is pretty good, has good tone, and I can get tons of sound through it with my Acoustic B115 cabinet, it pulls my highs and mids out really well [tweeter on], so it's just like my old Peavey Max Bass 112 [which had tons of mids and highs and lacked some low end]. So I think Behringer is decent despite what's said about them, because I like the 7 band EQ and I didn't like any of the other heads at that price range.

Next up for me is the Peavey Tour 450 head.

I have the BX3000 head, which has a lot of good reviews, not so much for the 4500. I agree with you, they are overrated on power, but at least my head has a good sound, it does not sound thin at all; and it is still very loud. And this one is the quietest bass amp Ive ever had, all the Vox and Ampeg amps Ive owned had horrible hum issues. Sometimes you get lemons, sometimes you get diamonds.
