I'm the type of person who has played ALOT os musical equipment. And when i got this Behringer for free with the Bass I was buying. I wasn't too excited, Behringer although they have great tone, in my experience don't last too long though. And initially I ignored this amp for my other amp. I played it a month or 2 later out of curiosity. And since then it's been my favorite Practice amp. Great sound, although limited in tone options, but who needs equalizers for practice. It's solid as a rock, I've stood on it, kicked it, dropped it, and it's still works like new. Even the amps looks almost as good as new. Best practice amp in it's price range.

I got this to use as a practice amp and for some recording in my home studio. The tone is top notch for an amp in this price range. I use my Dad's larger Behringer Amp or my family friend's Fender Bassman when I gig so I knew I wouldn't need volume. I really wanted to add another dimension to my bass recordings by micing this amp in addition to recording direct. Instead, I found a number of random vibration noises that correlate with me playing certain notes. however, I discovered that when I used the amp as a foot rest while playing, all humming and rattling went away, which leads me to believe that its just not put together well. It should be noted that when I do this little trick, my recordings come out great. Great tone, poor build quality.

can you say "practice amp\

By stix&pix

from austin, tx.

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

I wish beginners would learn a bit before they make fool reviews. This is a practice amp, not meant to keep up with guitars and drums but for mostly solo practice or low volume get togethers. I own it and I use it... to practice in my apartment. I use my bigger behringer for my gigs. This is a good amp for what it is supposed to do, I like the tone that comes from behringer. 50,000 watts of power still won't improve your playing so learn before you comment.

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

i already wrote a review for this once, but something has come up since said review that i think should be addressed. i do alot of slap bass stuff. chili peppers, vic wooten style stuff, things like that. and the amp is not holding up to it well. it cracks and fisses out alot. it gives me strange sounds on my first fret, third sting, and 8-9 fret, first string, but no other frets. it stops playing for minutes at a time, and i dont have either the amp or the guitar turned up all the way. maybe im playing it to hard. maybe i got a faulty batch. i dunno. but if your looking to using this amp ALOT, like i do, then i would suggest somthing a little more durable. im currently looking at buying the Behringer 300W aluminum cone amp, which looks amazing for the price. so if your into slap bass, or another style of hard playing, i suggest somthing else.

It was my first amp.

By Jsharaya

from Indianapolis, IN

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

When I first bought my bass I needed an amp so I got this one. It was the cheapest one there. I used this amp for about one year and a half. This amp is not an amp that can keep up with your drummers and guitarists. I bought this and the volume on it is horrible. I think it said it was a 25 Watt amp but I can't belive that! When I first got my band together no one could hear my bass. That is when i decided to get a new amp. If you are just starting and you know this one is just for practicing alone then I would suggest it, but if you plan on playing with others this amp is not for you.

Decentt

By Hijack_32

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

Well i bought this amp in march and it's gave me a DECENT sound for the price. One problem that I do have is that there's no master knob. But hey i usually see no master's on most little practice amp. But if you're thinking about buying this for practicing it's great. But like a few people said already it's not for live or gigs at all. And btw neone who would buy this thinking it would keep up with the sound of drums... idiotic lol.

A Solid Amp

By Nighthawk551

from Terre Haute, IN

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

The Behringer Thunderbird is a solid little amp! I've been playing it daily for about a month now, and it has never let me down. For a 15w amp, it gets quite loud. Unless the gain is turned up all the way, this amp doesn't buzz and vibrate like others in its price range. The bass on this amp is excellent; it is very deep and booming. The treble and mid is good too. This amp is meant to look and have a vintage sound, and it lives up to its expectations. With the proper settings it can go from vintage to modern sounding easily. Bass distortion and chorus effects sound excellent on this amp too.

By ajay1959

from Manalapan, NJ

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

After playing my friend's bass during jam sessions, it was time to purchase my own equipment so I can practice. I was looking for a practice amp with quality, a compact size and value. A friendly sales rep at my local Guitar Center immediately pointed me to the Behringer Thunderbird BX108 1x8" Bass Combo Amp and it immediately made an impression! Also tried the Peavey and Fender 15 Watt amps. Although the Behringer had a little less punch in the showroom, there was no comparison in regards to tone. Has plenty of punch in my 18' x 12' family room! The price was right and I can hide it from my kids in our coat closet! If I could enhance anything, I would add a little more power and double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years! Considering everything, it's still a great amp!

Some Regrets

By Verdict

from Seattle, WA

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

I got this just for some playing around the house when I got my first bass three years back. I really like the tone and the look of it. I got into bass just so I could lay some real bass lines on my own recordings. This amp was not good in that department. There are a few notes on the neck that produce a pretty loud buzzing sound from the cabinet. I tried unscrewing everything and basically putting it back together again with all the screws tightened and it still buzzed. So I can't record with it, oh well. I still really like it as a cheap practice amp but if you're trying to have it pull double duty as a studio amp like I was, then I'd look at a 12 inch speaker with maybe some on-board modelling effects.

Nice Practice Amp

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

For the price, I couldn't see where this amp could sound better. It took me about 5 minutes to get the tone that I wanted.

sadly dissapointed

By belowthestaff456

from dallas, tx

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

first off, let me admit, i am new at bass. i think im pretty good for a beginner, but i would like to put out my inexperiance before you read the rest. i must say, i think the amp has great quality, it looks great, durable, etc.. but for gods sake, it doesnt even have a volume knob. which brings me to the first problem i have with it, i just dont think its loud enough. i play an Ibanez soundgear, and i love it. i think its a great guitar, and i would like to hear it more than i do. the second point i have is that, i dont think it gives you enough gain, even with both the gain knobs on the bass and the amp on full. i think its alright for a nice practice amp, but my bass sounds better through an old Fender guitar amp.

Its Ok.

By That One Guy

from Elyria, OH

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

I needed this bass to practice when ever I'm not with my band. This amp is good for that and only that. It makes nice sound, when you aren't trying to blast it. You would need to do that because it isnt very loud at all. Plus it crakles of you try to make it as loud as possible. But its cheap and its good if your by yourself or something.

good little practice amp

By James Klopack

from birmigham al

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

If your expecting it to be as loud as a 15 watt guitar amp you will be disappointed. However it works well for my purposes. I use it as a keyboard amp and to play drum beats/samples from reason/fruity loops. In that respect it works quite well and is clear with a good tone. I also use it for recording bass; with a compressor in front of it it sounds pretty sick. i bought it used from a pawn shop and have had no trouble with buzzing at any volume or pitch aside from absurdly low kick sounds.
