Overview

Now get both the Acoustic B200H Bass Amp Head and the Acoustic B115 1x15 Bass Speaker Cabinet as a package deal. With these 2 monsters in your arsenal, there's no venue you can't shake up.

The B200H 200W Bass Head:

The Acoustic B200H professional bass amp head is designed for large club and live applications where it will fill any stage with depth and definition. Used in conjunction with the B115 bass speaker cab, the B200H is a bass amp head that will easily drive either 1 or 2 cabinets in any combination of your choice.

The 2 bass inputs are designed to accommodate both active and passive bass instruments while the Gain and Volume controls give you complete control over the character of your tone. Increase the gain for some old school rock tones, or lower it and turn up the volume for great clean, classic or funk tones. The preamp includes a very natural and tube-like compression as well as a harmonically rich distortion circuit, which keeps your tone musical—even at high volume levels. The B200H bass amp also includes a notch filter to tailor your mids, and a 6-band EQ for exact control over every nuance of your bass's tone.

Rear panel features include a parallel Effects Loop, and XLR balanced Line Out with Level Control and Ground Lift. The 2 speaker output jacks allow you to directly connect to each speaker enclosure (such as the B115 and/or B410) to maximize your tone and power.

The B115 250W 1x15 Bass Cabinet

The Acoustic B115 bass speaker cabinet has a professional enclosure designed for large clubs and live applications. Used in conjunction with the Acoustic B200H bass amp head, the B115 cabinet will easily handle the power of your amplifier and provide wall-shaking lows and a massive bottom end. Although conservatively rated at 250W RMS, any combination of Acoustic B115 or B410 speaker cabinets may be used for larger venues.

The B115 bass cabinet features a rock-solid, tuned and ported design with heavy internal bracing, caster sockets and professional spring-loaded touring handles with rubber grips. Heavy-duty rubber feet allow secure stacking and ensure solid placement on any floor surface. Rear panel features include a recessed jackplate with parallel dual 1/4" jacks and a horn on/off switch.

Classic Acoustic cosmetics include nickel corners, black grille cloth with white piping, heavy-duty roadworthy covering material, and steel trim strips with understated blue accent color. It all adds to the durability (and legacy vibe) of this great bass speaker cabinet.

Plain and simple, I've found myself infatuated with this amp. It's smooth deliverance always causes me to be ever so sprightly on stage. The sound is great. The group I perform with play in a lot of churches and schools, and miraculously I've never had the necessity to go over about a quarter up on the knob. One thing I did notice is a small whistle coming from the back although it becomes unnoticeable with higher volumes. Overall, I highly recommend this combo to any bass player in dire straits of some great sounds.

This combo sounds awesome, and in my experience, IS pretty reliable. I gigged and practiced with it frequently for about a year. However, you WILL NOT get the 200 watts of rated power from this combination. The head puts out 200 watts at 4 ohms, yes, but then the speaker doubles the resistance to 8 ohms, effectively halving the power that finds its way to the speaker. 200 watts is enough for most small club/practice applications. 100 effective watts is (generally) not. I got to a point with my band where I needed to upgrade and get myself more power. Buy the awesome head and find a cab that can handle a 200-watt load at 4 ohms. There's nothing wrong with the B115 cab except for its resistance rating. Unfortunately, many people new to buying bass gear (myself included) fall prey to what looks like a great deal (a lot of power at a low price) but fail to notice or understand the resistance rating. Just know what you're getting yourself into. THAT said, the head does have a great sound, and is totally worth the price. It might be low on features, but the EQ is great, and if you know what you're doing, the notch filter will help you dial in just about any room. My only complaint is that you can't turn (the notch filter) off. Pre and post gain is always a nice touch, too (though not nearly as important as it is on a guitar amp). The cab is tough and generally reliable, it just has too high a resistance rating for the B200 head. If you're going to buy the cab, find a head that puts out 250 watts at 8 ohms and use it to its full potential. In short, I gave this three stars because it's really not a compatible combination, and even though most inexperienced buyers don't realize it, Acoustic (and Guitar Center) do.

Great sound that no one can hear

By JUSTIN GALLE

from Dallas, Texas

The amp on this thing is awesome. I can get almost any bass tone I want out of it, but as another reviewer noted, the cab and the amp are not a compatible pair, and they really shouldn't be sold together. The cab's resistance level is at 8 ohms when it should be at 4. This means that you only get about half the power the amp could potentially put out to a cab. 100 watts isn't even loud enough for my band's practice sessions. I put my guitarist's 100 watt Ibanez half stack at 1/4 volume, and it's still too loud for the bass amp to really be heard. Put a drummer and vocals in the mix and the bass isn't even something that can be heard, just sort of felt. The reviewers who talked about how loud the amp gets must not be in loud rock bands or anything. I could only see this package being loud enough for maybe a church band or something really soft, but not something in which the bass is terribly important to the music. Overall, I love the tones I can get with this thing, but I can't hear those tones when I jam with my band. If you like this amp, I recommend just buying the head and a separate 4 ohm cab. This combo does not deliver the 200 watts it promises.

Great for its price

By charles a

from Indiana

I bought this for myself last year because I started playing in a metal/hardcore band. It's pretty darn good i must say. I play with two guitarists using full stacks and just the 115 cab can hold its own. I bought the 410 cab to complete just because with the extra highs and treble you get it sounds soooooo LEGIT. I've gigged 3-4 times a month for the past year with this head and cab and it still sounds as good as the day i bought it.

Wow - what a disappointment!

By scat

from Long Island, NY

Had to return the head, no way that was 200w. Also, extensive buzzing and rattling from the head if volume turned past middle setting. The 1x15 had low end only, not much thump, and no mids or highs to speak of. Mainly though, my concern was with the head. Really low quality, made in China.

Sweet little half-stack!

By Austin Davis

from Spokane, WA

I bought this amp after a 5 year hiatus from bass, and let me tell you it is sweet. It is plenty loud for my needs and has tone out the you know what. You can dial in any sound you want because of the huge eq. I like the DI out on the back (and the soundguy at church like that it had a nice amount of output). I don't have any real gripes about it except that I wish it came with casters. If you are looking to upgrade your rig, definitely consider this one.

Best boom for the buck!

By Dave

from Dayton, OH

I've been using an Acoustic B100 as a practice amp for about a year. It is clean, quiet and sounds great for practice and small rooms, but I wanted something with some more power to play out. The B200H and B115 combo gives me the sound and power for anything I'll be doing (which does not include large venue gigs!). With a $75 off coupon I payed $275 for the head and cab which is a great price. The sound is great - nice clean oomph - I'm not into bass distortion! I use it for both a 5 string (Sterling Ray35) and a 4 string fretless Jazz Bass and it sounds great for both. A few minor notes: 1. A mute switch would be nice (I could avoid turning the amp off to switch basses). 2. It would be nice if you could switch out the notch filter as opposed to dialing it all the way up or down. Sometimes you don't want the mid scooping! 3. The horn can be a little noisy for some pickup settings. Easy enough to turn it off, so no big deal. I consider the notes above as minor, as it would have cost me hundreds more to get around them with another amp. For that reason, I rate it a 5/5. This may not be a true road warriors amp, but it is a great amp for the enthusiast that plays out occasionally.

good bass amp

By Jeff

from Cincinnati, ohio

This is our bassist amp. I am not a bassist myself, I play the guitar. But I've been around professional concert sound equipment for a long time. This is a good amp and worth the money. It creates a good solid sound and doesn't seem to have a problem at louder volumes. But like any equipment I don't like to turn the knob till it stops. Never a good idea. It's ported well and has one large speaker which is needed to reproduce deep sound, and the port seems well tuned. The Only issue I see is that the cabinet could be made of stronger stuff. My guitar stack has a stronger cabinet, so be careful if you gig with this thing. Don't drop it! But you should never drop your cabs anyway. All in all... A good amp for the money. And yes you need a 200 watt ( or more) bass amp to compete with a 100 watt guitar amp.

Surprising power packed sound at the RIGHT price homie!

By The Reverend bIl Z'bUb, Her Bed of T

from San Diego, Ca

Look, sometimes you're just broke and gotta pinch every penny. You've been on the review sites, through the local readers, down at GC and trying to find just the right amp for the price. I thought about buying used but man that could turn out just wrong and then I'm just SCREWED. Finally, I settled on giving the Acoustic B200H a shot with the 1x15. At the time I felt I needed more but just had to make a purchase and took 'er home. ** BOY WAS I GLAD I DID ** .. I play with a hard rock/metal outfit and was afraid it wouldn't hold up against drums and two marshall halfstacks pushing les pauls.. it DOES. I figured out to push the output on the b ack up in addition to the volume and gain for even more sound. The EQ rocks as well, giving my Schecter 4 string the punch it needs to pop/slap every once in a while. The low end will make some of those dub reggae guys jealous as heck. The floor shakes beneath you and the tone rumbles in your bones. The best part is the 3 year (and optional buy in 5 year) warranty from Guitar Center. They'll just swap it, no questions asked. If they made a tube model I would eventually go for it. I'm considering the 600 just for the extra punch, but in the mean time throwing a 4x10 on this baby will keep you satisfied. Seriously, I don't BS people when it comes to saving money. I'm a dad on a family budget and this was the choice i *had* to make.. I will tell you in no way if this head was stolen I would buy another with no regrets or hesitation. If you're looking for a big, flexible sound and are on a serious budget, start here with the Acoustic B200H.. I'm telling you you'll be pleasantly surprised. The ONLY thing I think I would add right now would be a preamp perhaps and the 4x10 for even more tone modeling. Its just really interesting how something so simple can compete with the big boys. Thanks GC for bringing this one back!!
