I purchased this head due to budget constraints over a year ago from music 123. You can control the sound anyway you desire, from warm and fat to punchy. I play it through an Ampeg SVT half (4 10") and the sound is incredible! Great for all size gigs. Can't go wrong for the price! You just need to find a matching 4ohm cab.

I got this amp head after months of searching for the chepest head. After all the diplomacy at home to get an amp. I got this amp head and a GK Backline Cab. This amp head has some tools on it that are nice...but here's the major problem. 60 cycle hum killed my mix again and again, it even got me from not getting gigs because of my noise issues. This amp is lousy. The noise keeps you from enjoying the tools this amp has. Behringer does do some things really well, but bass amps isn't one of them. I owned the amp head for 2 years and dealt with the hum. Trust me...kill the noise and get a GK Backline 300 watt for 40 dollars more. Much better sound...much better quality.

Good quality for cheap amp.

By Christian Schillo

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

This head is just overall great for the money. I have had mine for about a year and never had a problem. It puts out plenty of power when I am on stage, and has a great sound to it if you dial it in to your liking. I am in highschool and really can't afford much, but this was worth every penny!

Great ! Be sure to check.......

By Jeff-_lX-G

from Nashville, Tennessee

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

I bought this amp as a back up. Right outta the box I had a huge problem. Low end hum and distortion. Upon closer inspection it had come from the factory set up for Euro-power (220v). After turning the fuse/selector around....Wham ! What an amp. Truly the best bang for the buck. Needless to say this is now my primary amp. 450w is plenty of power and I have NO problem filling the stage with Bass. Worth every penny. Just check the fuse/selector.

Don't make this mistake.

By Jeff-_lX-G

from Nashville, Tennessee

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

I bought this about 2 yrs ago. Had trouble from the very start. On/Off switch went bad. Transformer hummed. Power level would travel up and down all by it's self. And after about 30 min playing if it did manage to stay on it would get real "muddy". I bought this as a back up but it works a lot better as a boat anchor. No help from customer support and when I took it to several shops, No one would touch it. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Good head for the money

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

been playing this head for about a year now and it hasn't let me down yet. sound quality is pretty good, little bit of a buzz but can't here it once you start playing. i haul this thing around and leave it in people garages in -20 degree weather and it fires right up no problems. if you're looking for a good reliable cheap amp that has plenty of power for the price, this is it.

Great Bass Head for any Combo

By Gandalfe

from Seattle

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

I purchased a slightly more powerful bass head and cabinet than my music studio required because I wanted those sweet lows that only a quality bass amp can provide at softer settings. Setup was a breeze and my bass guy was happy he didn't have to schlep his amp to every practice anymore. He kinda scoffed at the idea of getting such a power amp and cabinet but agreed the sale price was outstanding. After the first practice with my 8 man Jazz combo, he said, that he was really impressed with the unit. And he isn't given to hyperbole. Solid sound, easy to use, and doesn't take three men and a boy carry.

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

i got this yesterday, the thing was great, put out monter sound. was truly happy with it, could mould my sound in everyway. except when i took it to practise the same night,i noticed that the nut on the passive input was rattling off, only to find when i tightened it back up i simply fell out if the head , so i pulled out my cord from the active input and the nut on the input of the head pulled off with it. on closer inspection the passive and active inputs are both black plastic and had snapped. every other input on the head is metal inside and out, and they made the two most used input's plastic? and sure enough they broke, with this the only problem, its great. this flaw needs to fixed and taken into account before purchasing.

Absolutely horrible.

By damienjam

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

I bought this head on Thursday, February 8th 2006 in the afternoon. I had band practice tonight, Saturday, February 11 2006 at 3:00 PM. I had only played around on it minutely to get a sound I liked between these times. Tonight was the first time I turned it up and really tried it out. After about 2 and a half hours of playing at near half volume, I turned it off for a break. 10 minutes later, we started jamming again and the head wouldn't even turn on. This is an absolutely horrible head, DO NOT BUY IT. Go for something that's built better, there's a reason the price is so low on this thing.

Great performing rig for the price

By Jerome Savage

from New Castle Delaware

Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

I bought this rig back in January 2006 along with the Berhinger BA210 & BA115 cabinets. At times i play very loud and hard. This set up continues to perform extremely well. There is no output strain at high volume. Just make sure you match the right speakers with this cab. The 450 watts of power (@4ohms) is serious.
