Picture this: you and your buddies have a band. You've been gigging around town and are making a name for yourselves. It's time to start doing some serious songwriting and get that first CD done. You grab your guitar and your GX108 and drive over to the bass player's house. He's got the PC up and running and a cookin' drum loop is coming from the soundcard. Using the tape inputs, he hooks up the left soundcard output to your GX108 and the right out to his BX108, and plugs a tape out from each amp into the soundcard inputs. He briefly explains his song idea then sets the PC in record and off you go. After a couple takes, you've got good guide tracks for a new song. You save it, email it to your keyboard player and your singer, and start working on the next tune...

That's just one example of the many ways you can effectively use our new practice combos. You can also use them for small, unplugged gigs. Or, if you play keyboards, to give those bass or guitar samples an extra touch of realism for your demos or MIDI productions. Of course, you can also simply practice with them. And don't leave home without one: it's about the best thing you can have along on tour for warming up before the gig or keeping your chops up in the hotel room on a day off.

Great for home practicing, no regrets.
GABRIEL CAPPARELLI
It is low powered and lacks a volume control but has a gain control instead, I don't know why.
Robert Wyman
This little amp has very good sound and is great for both bass & electric guitar.

I play a 76 PBass, and had a Peavey TKO amp which was just too big and heavy for practice. Gave it to a friend and thought I'd try an actual practice amp. I shopped around and looked at offerings from Peavey, Orange, Pig Nose, and Behringer. I like the features on the Behringer, the sound is surprisingly good, and the various inputs and outputs are very useful ( line in and out for iPod, metronome, recording; headphone jack). Also like the old school looks. It's a practice amp, decent volume with passive pickups, rugged construction. Nothing looks like it's an obvious point of failure...I wanted an old style toggle on/off switch, but realize that would likely get broken in transport, so the modern rocker style switch makes sense.

For the money, this is a very impressive piece of gear. The sound quality, rugged construction, and feature set are hard to beat at even twice the price.

Bass playing and learning can be a tonal challenge to the average player, due to the low end spectrum of the tone band. Like any instrument, it requires a lot of ear-training and constructive practice time to develop a sense of pitch at those low frequencies. I needed a small 15-25 watt practice amp that allowed headphone practice and song-source input, with a speaker no smaller than eight inches. There are several out there for around the $100 mark. I settled on two that fit the bill for my needs most: the Behringer BX108 and the Ashdown Tourbus 15. I've owned amplification products from both and have had good luck with them. I also compared the amps with my small guitar amps for general tone comparison. In the end, I chose to keep the Behringer and ship back the Ashdown (which in fairness had the advantage of being about 10 percent smaller, about 10 percent louder, and more of a tidy cube shape. It's a nice little amp, too but had a slightly muddy and shallower tone, overall). The BX108 Thunderbird wins, however, in the following ways:
Nicer cabinet - the 14.5" high by 13" wide by 9 " deep cabinet is perfectly wrapped in smooth, soft black Tolex. The speaker port is neatly covered in a maroonish tweed screen. The top control panel is a classy brownish-red with simple numbered hat knobs and a plastic rocker on/off. There is a bright green LED alongside the on/off. Nice rubber feet on the bottom.
Controls are very functional - The volume control is labeled "gain", but really functions as a volume potentiometer (maxing it out doesn't seem to dial in much if any distortion coloring). Nor does it impart enough volume to penetrate through a live-play group, unless it's an unplugged ensemble.

This little amp has very good sound and is great for both bass & electric guitar. And if you have a good effects box with your electric guitar, it's even more fun. The volume probably isn't going to disturb anyone unless you turn it up too high and they're in the next room sleeping. I did detect some slight distortion when I was playing the E string on my bass but I think I may have had the mid-range control set too high, otherwise I've not had any problem with this pint-sized amp. I like it for practicing and I like it even more for home demos. I laid down some tracks, a bass track and 3 guitar tracks - all played through this amp - and I very much liked the results on playback. This amp does exactly what I was hoping it would. With the good sound quality and extra features it offers, this is a real nice value and no-brainer purchase for practicing your bass chops and use in your home studio. Also, shipment from Musicians Friend was extremely quick!

I learned this amp is made by hand in Germany after I purschased it, and I wasnt suprised, I basically bought it because of the great craftmanship and even great sound quality. Great for home practicing, no regrets.

I've been playing guitar for a while now and decided this fall to take up bass. Since I didn't want to blast the neighbors out of their house before I learned to do too much on it, I understood a practice amp was more appropriate for my needs than anything else. This is not the amp you're looking for if you want to play along with your guitarist and drummer in a crowded bar, and the only negative review I've read should have recognized that before jumping into buying this. This is the amp you and your neighbors will want you to practice on should you decide to pick up a bass, too. It is a sturdy, good sounding and good looking little amp.

The look is great on this amp, but then I plugged it in. Window rattling bass with no strain in the tone or weird tin can sound, just smooth loud bass. I am impressed, use it now at home over my exspensive amp because it is plenty loud.
