Hmmm, well if anyone else has info on this stuff, I'd like to know if it's worth the $

 

$150 (then you just have to add the $70 overweight shipping) for a 200-watt combo amp with one 15-inch Eminence speaker and a tube preamp. It weighs 66lbs

 

$150 (plus the $70 overweight shipping) for a cabinet with 4 10" Eminence speakers which can take in 700 watts-RMS at 8-ohms it also has a tweeter and comes with casters. It is stackable and weighs 108lbs

 

For some reason I can't add them to my cart now because when I click on them I get a blank page. :/

Never heard of them, but you could have a reasonble rig for the money. The specs of the 410 look OK, but then again.............so does behringer.........you know what I'm saying?

 

 

Yeah well, all of those amps that I linked you all to have Eminence speakers in them. I'm pretty sure that Behringers never have those in their amps

I maybe wrong but I believe "SWITCH" guitar company made Drive Wildfire basses. The Switch guitars were made of some material called Vibracell. I had a couple of pieces but couldn't get use to the feel of the Vibracell material.


 

 

I played a Switch a while back. Different, and not too bad quality wise but it does feel "off" somehow.

 

To OP-Eminence speakers doesn't mean much. You could wire some Eminence speakers onto a 1/4" piece of particle board and it'd sound pretty bad.

$120 for a 200 watt amp maybe worth trying...no??? I see all these smaller guitar heads (Epiphone,Crate) why not a basshead? It maybe worth the $$ , if it doesn't work just Mod it !!!
:idea::thu:

Because a guitar amp only has to produce midrange. Bass needs more wattage, and I would worry that, since amp companies can manipulate the numbers any way they want, a $120 2oo watt amp may be less than it appears.

The combo seems a bit steep. that is a little over $200 for something that is a bit of an unknown.

 

 

The combo's only $150 and it's 200 watt, not to mention the head on it is a hybrid so it has a tube in it. The only thing that pisses me off about it is the $70 shipping that I can't get around. At least I get $10 off the price since I'm getting it from MF. So the total for the combo is $209

True, but are we talking top of the range Eminences or something inferior to their usual stuff. I reckon at that price there'd be cause for sceptisism but I'd be happily proven wrong.

 

Hey if they were selling them in Sydney somewhere for $129 I'd be tempted to buy one as an experiment. Besides, do they come with a warranty?
