i'm stuck with another problem reguarding choice,
my younger brother david has a small Peavey transtube practice amp,
but he would like to get a much better larger amp so that he can jam with us
and not be completly drowned out by the drums and guitars....

i chose these but i have absolutly no clue as to what manufacturer makes
a clean well defined bass amp... and i'm pretty sure Behringer dont sound nice
since i tried out the guitar amps. so which one?

thanks for the advice

I'd go with the Behringer. I've got a Behringer head for my half stack, and it's plenty loud enough, so I would guess their bass head is pretty loud?

Plus, it's like 199 watts, higher than the other ones. Louder, better, do it.
Mmmmm... your mom

i'd ask in the bass forum. you'll probably get better responses in there.

I'm not sure what your price range is, but my bass player got his Behringer full stack for 600$. I think thats around 300 pounds.
He got:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/BehringerBX4500HUltrabassBassHead?sku=481090

He got the 300 watt version instead of the 450 watt because the 450 wasnt realeased yet.
Its plenty loud and actually has some pretty decent tone for the price.

If he doesnt like the tone out of it and thinks its too thin sounding (which is what happened to my bass player) tell him to pick up one of these.
Dramatic difference.

what about behringers reliablity problems? alot of people seem to mention that.
