Thanks guys---
thanks for your imput on the Peavey. Ive been doing ALOT of searching around for the best amp in my price range and a stumbled across another, the bx-100 made by Crate, for less (it was 330$, and the peavey was 350$). It was nice and loud as well, and had some of the same features. It was all solid-state, unlike the peavey, but had a good sound. At 100 watts it takes more than the peavey, which takes 75. It has an 8 band Eq, and the peavey has a 7, but i dont think would make much difference... Both use 15" spkrs and the peavey has a sheffeild (which ive heard good things about) while the crate uses a crate custom speaker, i beleive. They are about the same size cabinets although the crate is 10 pounds lighter. The two guitarists in my band both use crate amps and think i should go for the crate. AS far as sound and loudness im pretty stuck in the middle between the two. im not the most knowledgable person on amps or basses for that matter since i started only this year- so i have a few questions. The Peavey has a 'chorus loop', while the Crate has an 'effects loop.' what is the difference here? how can you use these and which is better? also, the peavey has preamp outputs, so i could upgrade without ditching the peavey, which i can see happening. And the crate has an 'external speaker jack', is this the same thing or what??? could i end up upgrading the crate with more cabs or preamps or whatever down the road when the other guys get stacks without having to get a new bass amp?? you guys seem to really know what you're talking about, so between these two, what should i get? ok well oce again thanks for the imput about the peavey, and peace. chris
