    love to hear what you think


    Being that I'm still green with bass equipment I don't think I could provide any useful info on the amp and the specifics of it. The only thing I would probably say is if the amp sounds good to me or not (which isn't a lot of useful info). But again, with the lack of experience at this point any amp would probably sound good to me.

    Well, I finally made my choice. I'm going with the Tech 21 VT Bass 200. I got a reasonable discounted price on it. Should be here next week. I want to thank you guys for all of the help and suggestions.

    It's all a matter of a reputable dealer. Sweetwater or MF, I wouldn't think twice.

    What are your opinions about "open box" items. This is in regards to the VT amp.

    Have you look at GK MB combos?
    Personally I prefer an head/cab over a combo. Have you look at Trace-Elliot Elf? You then can choose whatever cab you like.
    Actually, I have not looked at the GK's or the Trace Elliot's. Which I will do. Thanks for the suggestions. I'd like to keep it simple so a combo would work the best for me.

    Tech 21 VT Bass 200.
    Ampeg BA-210v2

    They are the same price. Obviously, the Ampeg has two 10" speakers and the VT has one 12". The Ampeg offers more, but, I really don't need all of that power. No plans on gigging. So, that's where I'm at so far.

    I've had a VT deluxe pedal for a couple years and love it. Hard to go wrong with Tech 21 products.

    Yeah, it would. But right after I posted, I realized he was asking about combo's.
