    buying an ampeg b-100r combo for $500

    thoughts about the half stack: i figured somewhere down the road ill need one this big and if i buy it now ill have it when i need it. i can intimidate friends. bigger is better. ermm guess thats it.

    thoughts about the combo: if i buy it ill have an extra 500 bucks to spend on whatever. if its as loud as my 120 watt fender ultra chorus(and the reviews make it seem to be louder) i will be happy with the volume level. i can take it to places easier. but then someday down the road when i need to play in something bigger than my school auditorium ill have to go buy that half stack anyway............but it will be FAR down the road.

    i cant choose........if i had the cash id buy the bigin for my room and the school auditorium gigs lol, and the other for taking to my friends house for practice.

          Well first of all I'd make sure you could transport and lift for that matter the 4x10 cab

          My old bassist had one and it took two people to get it up a flight of stairs.

          BTW check your PM's in a minute man

              I'm very bad at reviewing stuff but here it goes...

              A friend and i took it to the test :P

              He played with a Highway 1 Jazz bass and i played a MIM Precison bass.

              He plays alot of Jazz fushion Pastorius stuff, he couldn't get that thing that makes that sound. It's definatly not for slap bass! The EQ was a little flat, don't know really how do describe it...

              Anyway, i played some rock 'n roll with it, walking, "pumping" etc
              You don't get that punch that you want.

              We also tried the combo your were talking about, much much better!
              What ever your style is, rock, blues, death metal, jazz, you get that sound just by turning the knobs! :P

              Don't now if this helped you in either way....
