I play the bass in a 19 piece big band, which rehearses in a room on the first floor over a bar. I was looking for a small amp for rehearsal because the room is accessed by a steep narrow stairway. For the price, the quality of this little amp is amazing. I've seen other reviews where people have said the amp is noisy, but that's not a problem I've found. There are a wide range of sounds on offer, if you spend some time playing with the controls, and, thanks to the 'dynamiser' circuit, the overall tone remains vibrant and punchy at all times. Despite fighting against 4 trumpets, 4 trombones and 6 saxes - as well as guitar keys and drums - I get asked to turn down if I play much above one third volume! So I can use this amp on gigs too, without getting a hernia. I thoroughly recommend this amp.

Wow, what a great little amp. No it's not good for really loud gigs, massive punch, huge tone variety, ultra-pro sound, etc. BUT, for it's intended purpose, it's fantastic. I've played tons of amps over the years and I already own a killer rig for concerts and recording that can do just about anything - except it's big, heavy, and way too powerful for learning songs in my apartment and just fooling around. I needed a compact and lightweight amp that was cheap, and quite honestly I didn't really care that much about high quality sound, so I looked into the BX300. The tape/cd inputs and the headphone out are super convenient for learning songs discreetly. To my surprise, this thing really sounded pretty decent and was MUCH louder than I expected. The Shape function was better than I thought it would be. And the price! At usually $120, this is a steal. I compared this to about a dozen other "similiar" amps on the market and nothing else even came close - even some little combos that cost up to $350. Really, the offerings from Crate/Peavey/Fender/Rogue/etc. That are priced at about $220 or less are not even in the same league. And, judging from some of the other reviews posted here, this amp works fine for light gigging and rehearsals (which I wouldn't even had considered for something like this). So, if you need something small and light, for general practice and/or playing along with recordings (and maybe even a little gigging?), but you don't want a cheapo piece of crap that belongs in the WalMart music aisle, this is absolutely the best value on the market.

I just got this amp today in the mail, at first I wasn't to happy. But it has a pretty good sound for the price; I just wish it had more effects features.
When I first got the Behringer ultrabass BX300 amp I was just starting bass, and it worked great for what I was looking for. There were enough parameters to adjust to get the sound your looking for, and the shape feature added a bit of feeling to the sound, which was great. But once I started getting serious with a band and shows, I realized it didn't provide the kick that bass players need in their amps. the volume was fairly restricted, and it didn't have the real booming sound, which brought down the experience a bit. So if your just starting bass, I would recommend this immediatley. But if you've been playing bass for awhile and need a real booming bass amp, you should look elsewhere, becuase you won't find that with this.
I have this amp and couldn't be more pleased with it. It is quite loud and can be used for practice, studio and smaller gigs. For larger gigs just patch it through the main board. Unlike some reviewers I get no hiss or white noise from this amp. The amp has a beautiful, full sound and works great with my effects pedals. I can shake the house with this little baby. If you need a good inexpensive bass amp - buy it!
This is an "ok" amp. I get a good slap tone with the shape button. But when you turn up the volume it begins to give off feedback or some kind of fuzz sound. It?s great for practice but not for shows.
I was a little nervous, but still bought it because of the features and the price. Once I got the amp, I was amazed. This baby's got quite some punch and volume. Yeah, it's not any big bass rig, but for jamming and small studio work, it's perfect. Do yourself a favor but it.
I got this amp for my pratice and to be quite honest it sounds alot bigger then I imagined, the kick of this amp is awesome on the passive side me and my son play through this amp at the same time and it delivers the sound extremely well, only draw back on this amp is the vision of the control knobs when standing up, other then that this amp is the one to buy great amp for not a lot of bones. highly recommend this amp
I have had this amp for about 2 years now, and it is time for a new one. I was exited about this but when I started getting serious about tone I could not find one. The controls do not do much until you get about a quarter of the way on either side, the volume control only changes the volume every 2 lines. It distorts at about 1 1/2 on the volume also. Good for a begginer who is not serious about tone.
I have to admit, I was hesitant to buy this combo after reading countless horror stories about Behringers, but when I saw it on sale for $99, I couldn't pass it up. Overall I'm happy with this amp so far ... I only use it for practicing at home and would never think rehearsing or gigging with it. I hope to have it around for a few years to come, but only time will tell.
I've played bass for years, own the big Fenders, Kustom,Peavey, etc. I needed something small & easy to carry. I chose this one because of features & price. For a small amp, this Kicks Butt. Adjust the tone settings properly is a must.
This is great for studio work, I dont have to drag my Trace rig around from session to session. It does have a little hum and hiss, but it isn't anything that interferes with its sound. This amp has a great low end, and the mids and higs are pretty clear too. For the price, you cant beat it. It is definately not versatile enough to gig out on, but for session work and practice, it is a really good deal. These guys make top quality stuff, think the BMW of bass amps.
