Behringer BX4500H (Ultrabass BX4500H)

By MGR/Billy, 20/04/2011
This is the Ultrabass BX4500H bass head by Behringer. Price point you are probably thinking 'Wow this is great' In this case 'Buy nice or buy twice' rings true.

I must say Behringer has an excellent customer service department, but I would suggest saving a little extra to buy a better amp.

My predicament was, let a nice bass amp sit in my car for 8 hours in the city while I work and lug it up and down steps by chance it doesn't get stolen from my car or buy a cheaper rig and leave it at my practice space.

That is why I ordered the Behringer. $250.

It offers you plenty of options in the preamp. The knobs are: Gain, Ultra Bass, Bass, Mid, Treble, Contour, Shape, Output and the front mounted DI out.

The sound was never call your friends over good, but I was able to cut over a 4-piece rock group.

The clip meter on the front is just about useless. Mine never really worked right, but hey who cares.

Within 90 days of owning the thing it overheated just from normal use. I wasn't really maxing it either. I ran the gain at 3 o'clock hoping to get a little grit and then my output was around 10 o'clock.

It was mounted in a carpeted box. Weight was reasonable.

Every company lets a few duds out of the factory and maybe that was what mine was. I called customer support when mine over heated and they set me up with a new amp in a timely fashion.

If you want to buy the Sans Amp, try this and save money!!! (V-Tone Bass BDI21)

By fredolee16, 02/02/2015
First of all keep in mind that this behringer unit of the SansAmp unit is not a overdrive pedal concept. It is a tube emulator so those guys that are trying to bash the pedal because "the drive knob doesn't work well", didn't read or understand the concept of a bass driver pedal (tech 21 or Behringer BDI21). I play bass three times per week. Play in a local church but play for a rock band too. I play bass since 2000 and have several basses and other stuff. From 2003, the Tech 21 SansAmp bass driver was my main trick to my sound. For whatever reason, I decided to sold it to try something different but every stuff I tried doesn't give me that warm like Geddy Lee sound that I loved. I see this Behringer in a local store and immediately noted that is a copy of my loved Sans Amp bass driver so, for $30 I decide to take the risk. What a surprise. It is almost identically. I my opinion sounds a little bit better because has a little more midrange so I find it that it add less color to my sound than the Sans Amp so it's a little bit easier to find a clean sound. Yes, it is plastic, but I take care of my stuff so this is not a problem. This unit or the Tech 21 are excellent for passive basses. I can't play my jazz bass without this thing. It simply add punch to my bass and that warm sound that I really love to play rock. The other difference that I find with this and the Sans Amp is that the Sans Amp has a little more output than this but I just add more volume and bingo. The bass driver pedals add a little color to your sound so even when it has a "clean sound setting" it's a little hard to find a super clean sound so If you love a super clean sound, maybe this or the sansamp are not the pedal for you. Remember that this is a tube emulator. If you love a little warm sound (especially to play rock) you will love this unit.
