2007-04-25T02:30:41+00:00 <![CDATA[Bass amp]]> I decided on the Ashdown EB15 180W.
It's made in England, and though heavy (as you mentioned), it does have a nice sound and heaps of control.
I don't go out gigging so the weight is not a problem.
I did try the Fender Rumble 100 but didn't like the sound.
Many thanks for your replies.

2007-02-22T21:56:25+00:00 <![CDATA[Bass amp]]> Which bass amp? Which ever one you like, and whichever one you have usually are good answers. The fender rumble 100 is a good, if not one dimensional, amp. I don't know about the ashdown, except it gets pretty good reviews and is priced right for the power and speaker size.

I personally have a Roland Cube 100, that does just about everything I could want an amp to do and then some. Its drawback is that it is heavy ( 50lbs) to drag around for me, to our gigs. I am an old dude and what is heavy to me, might not be to you. So, I snagged another amp about a week ago and went gigging with it. It worked well, was light, and gave me all the tone I needed without all the extra stuff the Roland has. 10" speaker, 75 watts, four amp models, XLR out, all in a 12x12x12 cube that weighs 25 lbs. What is it? A line 6 lowdown studio 110. for 249.00 at GC. I got mine on their Presidents day sale for $200.00.

Both of the amps you mentioned are big and heavy, if that is not a drawback for you, you can't go wrong with either. I mentioned the two I have because they are great sounding amps, although a little pricey. They will do anything anyone elses amp will do for practice and small gigs, plus the have the XLR DI out to plug into a PA or recording system.

2007-02-22T06:15:21+00:00 <![CDATA[Bass amp]]> Well, I've gone and sold my lovely Godin LG because I was led astray by BASS GUITAR.
I bought a new Ibanez GSR200FM (flamed maple top). She's lovely.
I'm using a 60W Samick bass amp but I'm looking at a new Fender Rumble 100, or an Ashdown 180W.
Any thoughts on either of these please?
I've read reviews about both, I'm more interested in the general "ambience" or satisfaction level owners might have. I don't gig, just enjoy a wee jam with my cobbers now and then.
Should mention I'm still learning slide on my SX semi-hollow. Will probably cut down to one amp (bass amp), and play the slide through that as well.
Thanks for your thoughts.
