We were at Guitar Center helping our bassist check out bass amps, and the salesman directs him to some $149 Beringer amp. Spends 5 minutes telling us about how it's got a great EQ and tone quality for the price blah blah blah.

Bassist plugs in, can't get a note. The salesman turns everything up, he bangs his E string, and a little whisp of white smoke comes out the back. Then the salesman's expression sank as a large white cloud billowed out the back (serious, like a mini Hiroshima).

"....uhm, yeah, those are actually pretty cheap amps, lemmie show you the Hartkes..."

We actually had our bassist convinced that he broke it by hitting his strings too hard and that he was gonna have to buy it.

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

He should have bought it. An exploding amp would increase stage presence ten-fold.

He should've just destroyed the rest of it, one less of those amps is for the better.

We were actually joking about that on the way home. A bass amp + a pyrotechnics setup

i bought one of those and after playing it for 10 minutes at home it caught on fire. the whole house stank like burnt out electronics and there was a massive DC current going into the speaker, it almost popped out.
i thought i had magic fingers once, and had uncovered the fountain of love.

turns out my girlfriend was just peeing on me.

I was expecting alot answers like "What does he need an amp for anyway? No one cares about the bassist."

Well, that's assumed.
