Hi Steve,

You may want to consider a Carvin bass amp. They make a few really great sounding, powerful, functional combos as well as heads and cabs. They are also very reasonably priced, which I'm sure your church money-dudes will appreciate (I also play in church, and know what it can be like trying to convince the elders to purchase equipment). They also ship direct to you, which is really convenient. Check 'em out at A whole lotta bang for the buck. Peace.


By the way I have no affiliation with Carvin whatsoever...I am only a satisfied customer.

: Hi, I'm acoustic guitarist and know nothing about the bass so I apologise if this is a really stupid question or if it's been asked a million times.

: I need to buy a bass amp for my church, our double bass player is converting to the bass guitar.

: The band line-up is: one (sometimes two) rhythmn acoustic guitars plugged directly into pa desk; miked grand piano; unmiked drums, single miked vocalist; miked double bass about to be replaced by bass guitar. The church is a building which seats about 300.

: I have two questions:

: Will a 150W bass combo be sufficient for this situation?
: Can a miked doubled bass be plugged into a bass amp for a better sound (pa system speakers are too small for decent bass sound)?

: many thanks for any help you could give.

: Steve
