I'm 38, and started playing bass and guitar at 15 years old. I've owned quite a bit of gear over the years and have played in 3 different bands. I'm currently looking for a band needing a bass player. Into Buck Cherry, Metallica, AC/DC, etc.

Looking for a practice amp, I went to my local Guitar Center and foud the Backline 112 to sound great and was loud enough for personal practice. And at $290.00, it fit my budget well.

Great looks, easy to transport, loud enough to hear with my music turned up, total control over an awesome sound.

Speaker and cabinet cannot handle the lower registers of a 5 string well at all, and even though its 100 watts it could never sit beside a drum kit and try to play rock music. Also, my particular amp shuts down while I,m playing! Sometimes I can't even get the amp to turn on! The amp is only a year old.

Good amp, quality hardware and controls, poor speaker quality though.

The amp is perfect for a practice amp. Don't think you'll be getting anything else. It might be ok for a jazz band or recording, but nothing with any volume. Excelent tone for whatever you play! Seriously needs a quality speaker upgrade to handle deep tones and lower registers, but that would defeat its budget price.
