Either my ****ty 30w marshall MG for practices, or my drummers less-****ty 30w roland cube, and 120w crate half-stack for gigs n home practice. I use my processor through all of them, and I use the 30ws for practices basically because theyre portable.

1200watt Kustom head through a 215 cab and 212 cabinet. I always practice through the same amp I gig with.

Isn't this supposed to be fo bass? Alot of these posts sound like guitar amps...

I use a 350w head (running at 240w) through a 1x15" for btoh home and band practices or when we play out. It's a pain to lug around all the time, but it's all I've got and I can't ocmplain about the sound.

I use a Fender Rumble Amp 100w. Just amazing. I'm never gona need another amp in my life. My "band" hasn't met yet, but when we do I'll probably be using my friend's dad's Fender Bassman. I don't know how many watts it has but it's bigger than mine.
#11
65W is plenty loud for me. although i will go higher someday (when i get the specs of this speaker in my five fifteen then i'll have 80W hopefully )

oh ya, the amp the amp. Laney RB-3. got it today. eeek. and the cab to go under it is hopefully a sica speakered 15".

100 watt and a 15 is all you need for any rock gig if you need bigger you obviously have a pa so line in. dont kill youself with equipment. save the time lugging and use it to practice.

My Hartke pushing 350w into a 4x10 and 1x15 for practice, pushing 250w into the 410 for gigs.
I let the PA work for me when playing Live so I don't need a large amount of volume to be heard live.

harry: how's the carvin?? im thing about getting the R1015 combo.



AWSOME. I can get any tone that I want or need from the Cyclops.
#23
great, thats what i want to hear lol.

i blew my dinasour 15W practice amp, SO:

for both gigs/rehearsals/jams/practicing etc, its all the Ampeg BA115. which i dont like, becuz its hard to get your own tone with it. fortunately its hella loud, and dosnt sound like crap. just dosnt sound as good as it could imo. maybe its the 15" speaker. tho i want both a 15 and some smalls, thats why the R1015 looks perfect

25 Watt for practice - the room we use at our drummer's house has brilliant acoustics so I don't need to play too loudly.
I just bought a 115 Watt for gigs which I'll use from now on.

I use a 75 watt Randall elec. guitar amp, it's not a bass amp, but i've played with it lots, and loud sometimes, nothing has gone wrong with it! It sounds nice.
#27
Well, whenever I get around to playing with other musicians, it's a 1000 watt amp. Because that's all I have besides my 25 watt combo.

Of course, it's only at 1000 watts if I have both my cabs. Sometimes I'll just bring my 4x10. Then it's 600 watts or something.

Ibanez SoundWave 65 for practice (100 would probably be better, though) and Ibanez 115s 300w cabinet for gigs (using the SW for monitor)
#29
Ibanez SW 100. 115 watts, 15" speaker. Gives me exactly the tone I want, plus an XLR direct out, which is very nice for our sound guy. Don't see any purpose in using a different amp to practice with. Especially considering that we practice in my basement

I prefer to use the same gear for gigging and rehearsal, I did buy a small combo for home use but for me it has to sound the same as my gigging rig, because the way it sounds affects my style of playing; the only concession that I make is slightly similar to Funkmaster where my gigging rig often depends on the size of the venue, so sometimes I take one cab and other times I take two.

I use my Peavey TKO 80 watt for both. My little 10 watt amp just doesn't cut it sound-wise for practcie so I just play my Peavey at like, notch 1/2. I haven't play any "real" gigs but I can be heard fine over our drummer at parties and stuff. Our guitarist only uses a Marshall 50 watt amp and when you put him with the drumset, I can be heard fine at even notch 4 and 5. I don't really have any money for a cab or anything, I'm barely old enough for a job (14).

my behringer 120 watt for gigs and annoying the hell outta my family/breaking stuff (windows..) !!

30 watt crate for home, a 60 wat beringher for band rehersal, borrow m y friends peavy head and 410 for shows.

and soon (hopefully) Gallien Krueger 400RB 280 watt head through a Behringer 410, shake the ground man, shake the ground.
i would rather staple my own hands to a train, than pray on knees that judge and blame.

I'm thinking of getting a 400RB, too. Instead of just having a 1000 watt rig, I'll have 280 watts, plus another 1000 if I need it. My current preamp sucks, too, so it'll be a nice upgrade. A 1x12 cab would be nice, too, for low-volume environments.

As of next week, a Gallien Krueger 400RBIII/115 combo at 180/280 watts (8 and 4 ohms)

I'm assuming this should be loud enough to handle anything I need for the rest of high school.

The 400RB has a 5/4 string selector thing, so you should be fine.

right now, i just have a yorkville BM400 (400 watts 1x15 with horn). for gigs, i'll either use this, or if another band has better gear, i'll use that (i like my amp because of the 10 band graphic eq, and the limiter)
