: a 25 watt fender amp. I have my eye on a Gsr200, with a Fender amp. And another question I have which may sound quite stupid to all you expert: Hey guys, I have a few questions....first of all, I want to know if an Ibanez bass would work good enough plugged into a Fender amp. Also, I need to know how good the sound is out of s, but are electric guitar cables the same cables you use to plug in a bass? Well, thanks alot for all your help!

: Hey there Nathan,here's my two cents on your "needing help".
: 1)The brand of bass and amp combination does not matter at all.
: 2)The amp you're checking out happens to be an excellent amp.True,like
: some of the other guys said,at 25 watts it's not going to give you
: alot of volume(more than enough for practice or playing with non-
: hardstrumming acoustic players)but the sound is very good;I should
: know,I just bought a Fender bassman 60 about a month and a half ago,
: and I was up in the air between the Fender 25 and the 60.I chose the
: 60 because of the higher output,but I have to say I think the 25 had
: a slightly sweeter tone.Smaller amps usually do.Another amp you might
: consider is a Hartke 60.It's about the same price,more output,and it's
: got a midrange control that really changes the sound.
: 3)As for the Ibanez bass,I haven't tried the one you mentioned,but the
: day I bought my amp I tried a few Ibanez basses and I give them high
: marks.I have an Ibanez Musician bass I bought in 1981 and the sonnd
: and craftsmanship can not be beat.That's just my opinion.People seem
: to either love Ibanez or can't stand to be in the same room with them.
: Remeber although an expensive bass is nice to have it's the player that
: ultimately makes the sound.
: Isn't this a great sight?Every one's so helpful.
: Take your time and I'm sure you'll make the right decision.
: Jazz it up,Mickster.
