1 Zigracer 1 year ago I recently received my Epi Viola bass, which I had loaned to my brother a couple of years ago. I used to play the bass through an old keyboard amp, but I figured that I'd try to find a proper bass amp on the cheap - and one that wasn't another project. So I thought that I had decided on an Ampeg BA-110. It's a small 35w solid state practice amp with a 10" speaker. It has a balanced line out, so I figured that if for some reason I wanted to play this at a gig, I could use the amp as a preamp and monitor and run a line through the PA. Would cost me $158.40 before tax at GC. Then I found that GC had their Acoustic brand B100 on sale for $119. The Orange, CT store had one, so I tried it and bought it. The tone was great and the volume more than ample for my purposes. But now, having the thing home, it's effing huge. It certainly seems to be a better deal than the practice amp, but it's like a piece of furniture. Have any of you folks who play bass, used something like a 35w and ran it through the PA? What were your results?
