Bass amps advice...from the following

Post  GoteksVenom on Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:48 am

i have been playin for 3 years but still :/

anyway i need to ask a question and i really appreciate your help guys cuz im in a dilemma and want this to be my LAST amp....which would you advise from the ones listed below XD:(for band,lives and recordings and i play ALL styles but not really much of a metal but i do my share)

Gallien-Krueger (GK) mb210 : http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gallien-Krueger-MB210-2x10-500W-Ultralight-Bass-Combo-Amp?sku=581053 even tho the one i checked at the music store said it was 350W...it might be because i can add another speaker to it.... this costs 585 Euros

or

Berhringer BXL3000 : http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Behringer-ULTRABASS-BXL3000-300W-1x15-Bass-Combo?sku=481097 which is 279Euros

or

Laney RB6 http://www.laney.co.uk/show_spec.php?prod=rb6 369Euros

Honestly i afford the BXL3000 BUT i heard loads of negative comments about it...also i dont want to buy somethin not worth it and not regret like already happened....i have a 100W SWR.... which i regret buying 3years ago...

PS: thanks for the patience and sry for the long post guys xD!! but thanks if u do read and help...and give reasons wit hthem if possible but its oki XD

For my very last amp I'd go with none of those. I'd get a separate cab and amp instead of a combo amp. Probably a Warwick cab, but no idea about the head.

WW cabs are monsters. For a head id probs go for the one that Ed Friedland uses in his bass guitar reviews nowadays.

GK is quality. My next head is going to be a Bugera.

Be careful, I was quite impressed by the power and reasonable price of the Bugera range until I read that Bugera is an offshoot of the Behringer company Shocked

Apparently they sound good but suffer from reliability issues

Thanks for the tip. That will effect my decision, but I read some really great reviews from NAMM.

sorry for taking long to post guys...but thanks for the advice but im not really a halfstack person :/ im more into combos and honestly im insecurer out of the GK i said before the 350w but if added a speaker it becomes 500w... ( http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gallien-Krueger-MB210-2x10-500W-Ultralight-Bass-Combo-Amp?sku=581053 ) and a laney 300w added a speaker to become a 450 w if needed (http://www.laney.co.uk/show_prod.php?prod=RB8 )

i know im repeating BUT im trying to keep this my last amp or at least a LONGTIME amp which i wont regret and spending the money on(unlike my swr :/)....ive had my current amp the SWR LA15 for 3years....its a decent amp but its a beginner amp with simple controls cant do much :/ even sound/volume wise

i checked hartke,peavey,SWR,fender,behringer,laney,GK and hiwatt and i ended up with those 2 i listed up above....pls take note im going to use this amp for band recordings,lives and band practices >.< the swr does quite a mediocre job....out of all honestly...

In that case I'd probably get the GK. I'd definitely steer clear of the Behringer.

I think the obvious choice is gk. They make very high quality gear.
