Honestly I was just getting this because I was low on money and needed a replacement real bad. My GK blew and considering my band plays quite a bit of shows we needed something to pick up the slack thats super cheap.

I play Deathcore and needed something with good tone that would cut through with the low end. This head blew my mind. I took it outside where we practice plugged it in and instant head explosion. Our old head wasnt very loud and my wife couldnt hear it in the house. But this head, she heard all the way on the other side of the house. haha.

The features are good but the Ultrabass is kind of pointless. It actually makes your overall tone slightly muddy but considering I didnt buy it for that feature it doesnt lower my rating.

Ive played through the all kinds of different heads and although you literally get what you pay for, I wouldnt apply that to this head. Its cheap, its loud, its sturdy, tons of features and over all enjoyable, id recommend this head to starters, experienced and professional musicians all around.

It is that good.

I have used this amp for about 3 years now in an active band. This amp is owned by one of my band members. I play in a few different bands, therefore I choose to use this amp at practice to avoid lugging my personal rig from rehearsal space to rehearsal space. I have been a gigging bass player for about 10 years. I consider this amp "ok" at best. There are some good things about it, such as the power and eq range. However, when I play a gig, I opt to leave this at the practice space and use my own rig. While the amp has plenty of low end, it lacks definition and clarity that todays music demands. I play modern hard rock/ metal, and even though I get the lows I need from this unit, it cannot produce the piano-like clarity I require. I have had to use this at a gig once (larger venue)while my amp was being repaired. Although I was unhappy with my stage tone (not volume), I had an excellent sound out front thanks to this units Pre-EQ D.I. feature which is awesome and works as well as most D.I. boxes as long as its not set to PostEQ, which makes its output affected by the units' poor preamp. This feature along with its power section and reliability are its only saving graces IMO. I would recomend this product to anyone in their first band who needs a cheap amp thats capable of loud rock band volume. However, if your planning on taking this show on the road, I would spend a little extra and get something with better tone. Id also like to add that the preamp clips easily even at low gain levels on a passive instrument. The Ultrabass feature is basically a "mud" knob and is pretty useless. The tuner out is a cool feature but seems pointless to have mounted on the front of a non-rackmountable amp. Now that Ive got all the bad out of the way, heres the good. This amp is very loud and powerful, has a great D.I. and best of all, is very reliable and affordable. For what I use it for (rehearsals, and as a backup rig) I am pleased with it. It has no problem keeping up with a loud band and can acheive decent sounds for different styles. For the money, you cant touch anything that has the same volume capabilities. I give this a 3star rating due to its poor tone compared to slighty more expensive bass amps.

    AMAZING !!!!

    By Anthony Ciciani

    from Wilkes Barre PA.

    Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

    This Behringer bass head is by far "the best bang for your buck". I am 49 years old , and played in numerous bands. I have owned the least expensive to the higher end equipment. This head has enough power to handle any venue. I had the gain and volume output knobs at the 9 o,clock position. And it shook my house !!!! And I had plenty of knob yet to go. Buy this head , you will be very suprised by the performance. I dont use the ultrabass feature for my style of playing. Which is classic rock to metal, and sometime southern rock. This amp , if you are in a working band. I would buy two of these, and keep one in the truck as a backup. And they are inexpensive enough to do that. I am very pleased with this head. If you are looking for a really good bass head, and dont want to spend a ton of cash. All I could say is buy this, and you will have some extra bucks in your pocket !!!!!
    I am the type of player that doesnt use the included footswitch. I dont use the ULTRABASS feature either. I am in the band just to supply the low end with nothing fancy. So when I shop for an amp. I go for the highest power rating I could for the money. My band plays a "loud stage", this head handles it easy.
    It looks like a decent amp. It sounds good too. Its German engineering, and built overseas. Like everything else these days. It should last if you dont abuse it.
    Great value for this powerhouse !!!

    Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

    I bought this as a replacement for my peavey tko115. Let me tell you that this amp will get a killer tone that beats every other amp out there down except markbass and trace elliot. And it gets soooooo loud. i live in an old farm house and when i crack it, it moves my support pillars. Get the matching 4x10 cab also and take it from me you wont be dissappointed at all.
    Great amount of features(more than i use) Great 5 band EQ that can really dial a terriffic tone.
    No problems goin on 2 years of stage play and recordings. Still pumping out killer tone.
    Cant get a better bass amp for this cheap either,

    must know how to use it

    By Skydog-YE.83

    from Pittsburgh PA

    Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

    This amp has a meter and also separate inputs for passive and active pickups. After choosing the input appropriate to your bass, you then must dial in the first gain stage to match your particular pickups. Turn the instrument up all the way and set the first gain knob so that it peaks only rarely if at all.Once you've set it, leave it there. From then on the volume is controlled by the last knob called OUTPUT. The GAIN knob should not be moved once it's set up for your instrument.Moving the EQ might affect the meter, but I find that I need so little adjustment it doesn't cause a problem. If you're getting distortion all the time, you're probably overdriving the input by setting the GAIN knob too high.I don't use the ULTRABASS, and I don't use the SHAPE control or the BRIGHT switch. I leave the mid flat (12 o'clock) and adjust the lows and highs slightly higher to get a bit of a scooped sound. The sweepable center frequencies on those controls are real handy.I've not put mine through any hard use, but it sounds killer -- clean as a whistle, clear, articulate, and powerful through a 2x10 plus horn. I'm adding a 1x15 soon and we'll see how it does at four ohms. This with a passive 70s era fretless Precision with an additional Gibson EB0 pickup installed along with a Seymour Duncan P-Bass replacement.

    Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

    You will not be disapointed with this head, trust me. I bought this after going through a lot of amps at Best Buy and Guitar Center, I honestly prefer the Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H amp head. Compared to a Tube Amp, there's obviously a difference, but if you're a beginner starting to gig around localy, then I would recommend this head. Although, you won't be using some of the options like Ultrabass and Shape. The Deep and Bright will keep you busy looking for the right tone of preference. I got this along with the Behringer ULTRABASS BB410 cab, and I find it much better then a 1x15 cab. It won't sound as bassy as the 1x15, but it sounds a lot cleaner. I am still a newbie when it comes to music, but I can definitely tell what sounds good and what doesn't, and I can definitely tell what sounds better. You will get a lot of bang for your buck. And obviously, don't abuse this head, sure it can get loud, but if you abuse anything it will get damanged quicker. Treat it nicely. This rule applies to everything you own.

      I used this as a backup to my Eden wt550b and my Aguilar DB750. Ran it with Eden 210xst/xlt or with an old Marshall 215. For the money, I don't think you can find a better little rock/blues/funk amp. Sonically, it holds up well against the big boys--I'd say it has most in common in terms of basic sound with Ashdown and Trace amps.Mine never had any problems--bought it 6 years ago. I highly recommend it

      Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

      This was a sweet head, i enjoyed it alot, it was the first bass amp i owned, i played it through a decent cab, not the best cab but decent, the passive active option was great, and the needle was great to make sure you weren't pushing the amps limits, but this head, it is a beast, it is loud, used it at some outdoor music festivals, jamming, studio work, indoor venues, all over, lugged this thing everywhere for a long time and took quite the beating but always sounded good. Good highs and lows as long as you have a good enough cab to really appreciate it. My only problems with it was is that certain live shows and in the studio the amp gave off a constent buzzing that i could never seem to fix, but it was great for live shows, it ended up sitting in a jam room for 6 months or more used by mulitple bass players all varying in styles and was awesome. The bright and shape controls i rarely used, did not feel like i ever needed them, the ultrabass octive thing was pretty cool but never encorperated it in anying. ended up having to sell it, needed money.

      Amazingly awesome...slightly weary though

      Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

      The Behringer BX4500H Ultrabass Bass Head is one of the best solid state bass heads on the market; a perfect combination of power and tone.For a lot of die hard tube fans, like myself, this may not seem like very high praise, but this head kicks like a mule and is so customizable that it can compete with any mid-priced tubed amp head, and it will cost you hundreds less than any of them. This amp head would be an insanely terrific value at twice or even thrice the price.As you roll the gain along it starts with a mellow warmth, continues with a solid splash, all the way to a gritty growling snarl. The five band EQ allows you to dial in tight, versatile tones. The range between the traditional bass and mid zone, as well as mid and treble, can be explored exponentially with the added 140 Hz and 1.6 kHz optimizers.With the Ultrabass engaged it will provide a nice boost at lower settings, adding a nice thumping push about midway, and beyond that it will progressively kick harder and harder until your house caves in; excellent when you need that extra "oomph". When "depth" is engaged it provides a good lower end boost with a slight reverb, especially at higher volumes. "Bright" has a similar effect, but more in respect to the higher end. The "shape" feature outlines your tone very well, almost like a swelling compression effect; great for tightening up your tone. Also, I don't think this unit will ever overheat. The fan is so intense while it's on that it blows the calendar off the wall behind it. The included foot switch is built like a tank and has a very well balanced stomp plate (not too sensitive to the touch, and not too much strain involved in engaging the sounds). Hopefully Behringer will put one out that will include the "depth"/"bright" functions into it.I've used an Ibanez BTB Prestige five string with the active Bartolini preamp with this head, as well as a four string Squier P bass, a Spector Legend five string, and an old crappy Silvertone four stringer P style bass. I have been able to dial in perfect slap and pop tones, as well as sweet blues and jazz tones, and of course, my favorite, killer metal melodies with everything I have plugged in. No matter what, it all sounds awesome in the end; just a few tweaks here and there and...perfection!This head will easily hold up at larger venues, but is still perfect for jamming and recording situations. The only thing that I am weary of is pushing this amp over the edge. The limiter light comes on when the volume's pushing two o' clock. I currently run through the Behringer Ultrabass BA410 1000W 4x10 Bass Cabinet and have heard some things about the Bugera speakers blowing easily, but one of the techs at the place I bought it from told me that as long as you're gearing your EQ tweaks towards the thirty foot range that the cab is pointed at everything will sound and work fine in the end.You can not go wrong with the Behringer BX4500H Ultrabass Bass Head.

      Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

      For this price you can't bet it.
      You won't find a better bass head for this price. I use it with a Peavey 15 and a 2x10 cabinet. The sound is very solid. Good lows, crisp mids and highs. Just a tad of noise but can be eq'd out. The Ultrabass is only useful in upper range, but the Shape funtion is great. For small to mid sized audiences you can't beat this head. It shakes the house wherever I play. Thanks Behringer!

      from Powell Wyoming

      Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

      I use this amp rig for both practice; and pretty soon for recording and gigging. Needless to say attached to a good cab it has a great tone. I tinkered with the amp for over a fortnight learning its ways, its customs, i learned to live amongst its people, and i learned to love again. But in all seriousness the ultrabass feature is pretty great it gives it a pretty crunchy tone but you dont lose the original bass sound. honestly this amp will work for a variety of styles of playing. Everything works up to my standards which "Being a leader of a viking clan" are undoubtedly high. in fact the amp also works on pure will and determination.(Sarcasm used to great avail in thine review) All in all amazing amp buy it now if you got the uhh...well just buy it now

        Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

        I'm writing this do to I have several pieces of Behringer equipment over the years & have had very few complaints with their products per price point. I actually bought this head way back, roughly 10 years ago when it was Labeled as "BX3000T" 300 watt bass head. It's identical in every aspect. So in my experience believe also this may be 300 watts @ 8 ohms & perhaps 450 as it is now labeled when @ 4 ohms! At any rate, I've put mine through the rigors & it has always sounded good & done the job without looking back! Usually in medium size gigs. Plenty of solid wall shaking low end! Clarity with a slight distortion almost as a tube amp, which is good to me. Yes, there are some that are better at much higher cost, which I also have several Big names, but this head reminds me of the Peaveys of old, built like a tank, dependable & just rock it on out whenever you need it. I've thought a few times about selling it but not worth giving it up because it is that priceless as a backup if nothing else! It's a rock! A good investment for cheap that'll be there for you when you need it! Even when the big dogs of name brands come & go! Why they have had this basic model for such a long time, it's a Work Horse! The "Ultra Bass" is a little gimmicky but works well if kept very low setting. No need to baby this amp. Crank & play & hope you got the speakers to keep up! Hope this helps. A good deal under 3 Bens, Keep it Low!

          I have been using this bass head for about 3 years now. It has not had a problem handling any pedals save my compressor when the volume is at 100%. Not really a huge problem for me though. The sound is pretty good for a low cost head. It is a work horse and has everything you need for a decent bass sound. I play in a post-rock band and a funk band. I like that deep bass sound, much like sublime or good dub music. I want to hit people in the chest with sweet awesome bass tones! GIVE ME ALL THE SUBS YOU HAVE! This amp allows me to do so. I use it paired with the matching 4x10 behringer cab. So far, I love it, and so do all my band mates. Does it have that tube "warmth"? Nah, not really, but when playing with 7 string guitars, it still finds a way to cut through. For the price, it beats out a lot of other competitors with better reputations. I tried a hartke head similar to this one on the same cab, it didn't hold a candle to the tone of this amp.
          I also agree with most reviewers, the octave function can muddy up the sound, but I keep a small amount on, just to thicken up the tone a bit.

          Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

          First, I made sure that the speaker cabinets were phased together and wired to end up in 8 ohms. It has the ability to thump your chest and ears close up-within 10ft, deep rich sound. farther out it lessens but still gets the bass out there. I probably won't use the ultrabass option which is the same thing as the octave divider pedal. I don't care for that sound but I do like the deep option which is much more clear. Also I like the shape option and the full sound it provides. I have set all knobs at noon to 1:00 position. I have set the gain at about 9:00 so that it doesn't peak out and distort. The members of the band loved the deep bass sound on the stage and I was afraid that I was drowning them out, but out front it was balanced well with the others. It is a great amp for the price and I needed a back-up for my antique ROAD220 Bass Amp which I have had to repair when I push it too hard. I like the old school bass sound and this Ultrabass 4500H does just that. It will bring the ladies out to the dance floor. Just make sure your cabinet(s) are set correctly and you will feel it. This amp is happier also with 4-string basses rather than the low B 5-string, so play it easily. Metal players can adjust more Trebel and really crank it. Great for indoor gigs and good for most outdoor venues. OK, in summary, if you have learned bass on a small amp and are now in a rock band and need to go bigger, this is a great buy. Rock-On !

          Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

          I have used this amp for about 3 years now in an active band. This amp is owned by one of my band members. I play in a few different bands, therefore I choose to use this amp at practice to avoid lugging my personal rig from rehearsal space to rehearsal space. I have been a gigging bass player for about 10 years. I consider this amp "ok" at best. There are some good things about it, such as the power and eq range. However, when I play a gig, I opt to leave this at the practice space and use my own rig. While the amp has plenty of low end, it lacks definition and clarity that todays music demands. I play modern hard rock/ metal, and even though I get the lows I need from this unit, it cannot produce the piano-like clarity I require. I have had to use this at a gig once (larger venue)while my amp was being repaired. Although I was unhappy with my stage tone (not volume), I had an excellent sound out front thanks to this units Pre-EQ D.I. feature which is awesome and works as well as most D.I. boxes as long as its not set to PostEQ, which makes its output affected by the units' poor preamp. This feature along with its power section and reliability are its only saving graces IMO. I would recomend this product to anyone in their first band who needs a cheap amp thats capable of loud rock band volume. However, if your planning on taking this show on the road, I would spend a little extra and get something with better tone. Id also like to add that the preamp clips easily even at low gain levels on a passive instrument. The Ultrabass feature is basically a "mud" knob and is pretty useless. The tuner out is a cool feature but seems pointless to have mounted on the front of a non-rackmountable amp. Now that Ive got all the bad out of the way, heres the good. This amp is very loud and powerful, has a great D.I. and best of all, is very reliable and affordable. For what I use it for (rehearsals, and as a backup rig) I am pleased with it. It has no problem keeping up with a loud band and can acheive decent sounds for different styles. For the money, you cant touch anything that has the same volume capabilities. I give this a 3star rating due to its poor tone compared to slighty more expensive bass amps.

              I play bass in a Dokken and a Metallica tribute band and this head replaced a Hartke and it is insanely awesome! Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a low cost but powerful amp!!! I run it through a 2x12 and it sounds just as good at rehearsal volume as it does in a live setting by having it run through a DI box or at a recent show with no mikes we did. Great freakin amp!!

              5-String Players, Take Caution With This One!

              Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

              I bought this in Jan. 08' and I paired it with a Hartke Transporter 410 and a peavey 1 x 15 cab which I loaded with an eminence legend. The 410 was rated at 300 watts ( 8 ohms ) and so was the 115. To combine the two would give me my minimum 4 ohm load this head was rated for. All was good. The only thing was that my 5 string bass seemed a bit much for the head. It would peak at any volume so I would always have to roll the volume back on my bass and keep my eq at a decent setting on the head, Being careful not to push to much low. I used this rig for 80+ gigs @ 3.5 hours per gig or better. I never had any issues. Last sat. we threw a party for a friend of mine and there were three different bass players there so I explained the fragile state of my rig but even with all precaution it happened. The low end disappeared and the volume and punch was gone. When I looked at the head the damn eq was all jacked up on the low end and It had gotten hot. After an hour shutdown it was back up and running, I just hope no permanent damage was done. So if you play a five string, you might look elsewhere.

              Comments about Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H Bass Amp Head:

              Because of my situation on the different impedance factors (as stated in my last post) between my Behringer BA115 & BA410 Bass Cabs, I decided to email Behringer Customer Support for advise. From one of their pros named Ben, I found out that this head produces 300 Watts RMS @ 8 Ohms (which is ideal for my BA115's impedance factor), plus am able to run a clean signal from the "LINE OUT" of one BX4500H, to another BX4500H's "RETURN" without compromising anything. Well, that did it for me. 2+ weeks ago I ordered another BX4500H from Musician's Friend, & now have one head for my BA115 (300 Watts @ 8 Ohms), & another for my BA410 (450 Watts @ 4 Ohms). My rig is stacked with the BA410 on the floor, the BA115 next, then the BX4500H's topping them both. After hooking them both up & going for a test-drive, all I can say is "Man, oh man...!" The sound is fantastically amazing. I can go from a creamy Fender Vintage Bassman tone, to a chest-pounding, distortion-free earthquake, no matter which of my bass guitars I use. So thanks again Behringer(!), & to Musician's Friend for carrying such a great, affordable product...!
