Laney HMC160B
So a transistor amplifier, 160 Watts, a quip Clestion HP 15-inch connection c at all there is more classic: two between the front (normal and high), an output mixer (DI), the rear there is something to plug in effects loops, etc. Electronic batteries and an output to add a baffle.
In terms of rglages there everything you need, gain, volume, legalization 7 bands (very nice and helpful by the way), compressor, limiter (to avoid the distortion is high volume trs seems to me) and also what rgler the high and low. Level effects there is not much but a bass amp c APRS all!


Simple to use, intuitive manual trs clear. Is obtained very easily thanks to its sought-notament legalization.


The sound is still powerful and well Dfine. It is ideally suited my style of music (metal, blues and others). I play with a 5 string bass passive range of (Cort Action V) and I have absolutely no complaints at this level. Also, I t tonn the abscence of noise (grsillements, breath) this same by pushing the volume to maximum.


I t above the enjoyable quality of sound for the price (bottom) of the amp. I had the opportunity to test some of bass amps (Fender rumble100 Including the much talked about on forums and that is, I think, much less the HCM160B, but still I think ) and I could not find a better quality price. I use it for some time because I just almost just the acqurir I hsit long (infact was 4 months I was looking for an amp to find out about the forums), j have read some rumors about Laney not that scared me but a lot of bass players (including some professionals) and sellers have told me that Laney is a good brand trs, I made them and I do not trust not regret my choice.

Transistor amplifier
an active one passive input, output di, an effects loop as well as the possibility of adding a baffle

a compressor, ehnancer, limit, and a 7-band legalization.


Usage is quite simple
I easily got the sound I wanted


It should be my style of music, which is nevertheless far from being hardcore trs, I use it with a Mexican jazz bass and I think in great slap. I also have a big sound trs serious and you get round easily.
It is versatile trs.


I use it for a little over a year and love it.

The report quality is exceptional, a little more expensive than the behringer and 1000 * better, I do not think there is such a good quality report on the market I prfre heavily mod most Chres.

With the same budget, I would do the same choice without a doubt

It sounds great: its strong and round.
I play it with a low entry level (Cort New Action Bass 4 strings), and the sound is good


I bought it in January 2004, and even the no deception
He has a mouth, but it is quite heavy
The report is qualitprix trs good. This is a good combo for group play without either go into the config header + baffle.

Frankly, makes you want to be Fidler LANEY, but if I rinvesti, it will be in a head and a speaker;)

Dja cit prcedamment


Setup is simple too much potential but largely rglages suffisant.j 'gets a little prs all types of sound that I play metal, blues or pop rock so trs polyvalent.le manual is in English but sufficient


I play on a jazz bass Mexican j'obtient all the necessary without love it especially for the possibility of its very fat and round but still prcis mm tt.


I use it for a year and I love it because it is versatile bcp I used to trsrgulierement repetitions ac ki a drummer and two very strong tape that is scratch tt two marshall 100w and I rarely shoot BEYOND 7/ cra c'tait have chosen a quality price ratio the most interresting one years ago and this is confirmed ac time it is really good and trs I highly recommend it
