I needed a small practice amp to sit next to my computer to allow me to practice while playing music from the computer. All the inputs are there to allow me to listen to my playing via headphones and to input music from the CD player on my computer into the amp. So if the wife is in the room I can plug everything in and practice away and not disturb her TV viewing.Not a very powerful amp but sounds decent, lows could be lower but hey, it is only 15amps. Two thumbs up for the design. The amp is very sharp looking with its faux looking leather covering and cloth speaker screen. This amp sits in my living room and the wife was happy that it didn't have that old square, fuzzy covering, black metal screen look to it. My only complaint would be the price, a bit higher than most 15 watt amps which is why I didn't rate it at 5 stars.If you are looking for a decent practice amp that looks sharp, the few extra bucks are worth it.

I owned this amp and I stress owned. Don't get me wrong, it was built well, worked well, and had nice sound, but there were so few applications for a 15 watt bass amp that it didn't really justify owning it. If you live in an apartment and need a low wattage amp for practice, cool. Other than that stay away. This amp was just enough to jam with a single electric guitar player playing at low volume. Throw a drummer in and you may as well pack up and go home. I never used the computer hook up thingy so I can't comment on that functionality. To all of you folks starting out on bass, if you eventually want to play rock with a drummer, you'll need 100 watts minimum. Don't let anyone tell you differently. If they do tell you differently they are just trying to sell you something you'll end up getting rid of quickly.

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

Rockers... this is not the amp for you! Don't buy a 15w amp, then be surprised that it isn't LOUD! This is a PRACTICE amp. It is very very good for the acoustic bass player to practice with unplugged acoustic guitars, mandolins, etc. I agree it does not handle the low B string below the E well, but it is only an 8" speaker. If you need a hard driving sound, step up to the 100 amp kick back that will give you enough sound to get complaints from the sound man. If you need something to practice on, or to play in a small acoustic setting and be heard without overwhelming the room or the other players, this is the one to go with!

For Practice Only

By Eric Solstein

from NY, NY

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

It's small and simple, and inconspicuously attractive, so it serves the task of practice amp well, even... especially in a small apartment. This is by far its greatest strength, because this amp can hardly crank out enough db's to compete with a loud conversation.

Outstanding Practice or Small Club Amp

By Bob-a.vQ7

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

You can't beat the tone of this amp or the tone of the guitar player's version the Behringer Firebird gx108.

great little amp..

By Mr. Winkie

from Sitka, Alaska

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

I am a bass player and I have had my Thunderbird amp for 2.5 or so years..I use it all the time for practice, rehersals, very small gigs, and small acoustic venues..I have yet to blow the speaker on this amp and have never had one bit of trouble with this, or any Berhinger musical products..one exception..the handle gave it up a while back..i replaced it with 3/8" braided nylon rope doubled up...For the price you get an amp you can drive with great tone..I get the best fretless sound from my warwick fretless (passive)with this amp..if you want a great, inexpensive, very portable, small usable amp with great tone outta the box ..take a hard look at this one, its worth every penny........

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

This is a great amp for the money. I have had it for 2 years and its has started to get some crackle with my 5 string, but u should upgrade by 2 years. Can put out alot of noise. I have played with a guitar and drums and still been heard. This should be the first amp anyone buys.

By Dennis-YIpy1

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

I play an electric classical acoustic guitar through an acoustic amp. I purchased this Bass amp to chain to my acoustic amp, to add bottom end. I'm extremely pleased. It is very well made and sounds great for my purpose. I don't believe you'll find a better one in this price range.

good buy

By Patrick-B_.oG

from San Juan, Puerto Rico

Comments about Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp:

Great old Fender Bassman sound! I needed an amp to practice in my apartment and for jamming in small parties, this amp fits the bill. You hear your bass as it is. My Fender Precision sounds exactly like a Fender Precision. No added "clangy" noises like other inexpensive practice amps. Just pure tone, cool amp!
