So what if you wanna put down some cash on the amp? What brand should you get then?
Everyone keeps saying that they like X brand because it's cheap.

Yea there MAG series are made in china, but Ashdown's AMB series are still made in the UK. Too bad their ABM series is a tad too expensive.

Just wait till I buy my AB200, then a week later the 300 production will be made just in spite of me.


My favorite brand amp? Well it would be a tie between Acoustic and Peavey, both for the same reason, tone.

Anything FET powered... tube or not. It beats ampeg in weight and tone. Plus, SVT classics are ugly.

If I could afford an EBS amp, I'd own one. I currently use an EBS microbass II and it is lovely.

Oh...I guess those pictures in the ashdown club on Talkbass must be models from when Ashdown still made their amps in the UK. *Checks Ashdown site* Apparently they only make their Classic series, a step up from the ABM, in the UK. Meh, well it dosen't matter where a product is made. What matters is how well it's made. Sorry man. I'd be pissed if I bought Ashdown's pricey ABM series only to find out it's made in the same factory as the MAGs. It's like the Fender Standards; sure it's made in mexico and plays well, but you won't feel like you have a real Fender until you see Made in U.S.A. on the headstock.

I'm a huge Mesa/Boogie fan. My amp, the Bass 400, has a very clean, pure, and strong tone that still retains a lot of character. One day, I hope to load it up with KT88 power tubes, bias adjustment pots, and a nice shockmount rack case. I'd really like to get my hands on one of the Walkabout Scout combos, with a 1x15 speaker. Mesa also made my favorite cabinets, the old Electro-Voice loaded 2x15 and 1x15 models in the 90's. Bad. Ass. I really wish I could find some in my area.

Outside my fascination with Mesa, I really like Gallien-Krueger, particularly the 800RB. Despite my love for the Bass 400, I think the 800RB is the most perfect bass amp ever devised. Plenty loud, super reliable, and very toneful. It's definately one of the warmer SS amps out there; when you crank the Boost knob it gets a nice hairy grind in the tone. It's also very powerful for a 300-watt solid state amp.

As far as Ampeg.... I'm not a fan. The only amp I like of theirs is the SVT-II non-pro. Their heads aren't that great, and their cabs blow. That kind of rhymed.....yo. The vintage stuff sounds decent, but there's a huge issue with portability....
