A lot of factors go into crafting your bass sound, and one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle is your bass amp head. Different technologies produce signature tonal qualities. Tube heads are known for being fat and warm, smooth with a bit of overdrive, and naturally compressed, whereas solid state amps are sought after for their ability to produce a super clean, glass-like tone. The world of hybrids seeks to give you the option to enjoy a little of each. Wherever your tone tastes travel, we carry an amazing selection of bass amp heads from exciting, modern manufacturers and of course the legendary companies with legacies going back many decades.
Our selection of bass amp heads includes a host of potential must-have features like tube driven Direct Inject (DI) outputs and buffered effects loops, classic amp emulation with vintage voicing, enhanced midrange shaping, and outputs for slave heads. Features like these give you a ton of flexibility in building your bass rig, as well as being able to fine-tune your sound for any genre or song.
If you’re going for a beefier bass amp head, consider getting your own personal dolly (drummers don’t count) because some larger models weigh up to 100 pounds. Thankfully we also have a variety of very sweet sounding bass heads down around the 25-pound mark and even smaller. Your shoulder sockets will be forever grateful.
