My over all review is this:
The amp has many amazing features on it. Behinger made this amp with incredible technology and its very high quality. Its definitely worth its price and more. And out of the year i have had this, i have never had one single problem from it, not once. This is the amp for you, and you should get it to experience the amazingness too.
This bass amp comes with some outstanding features. One of these great features is the Ultrabass button. It makes the bass of your instrument so much more amazing by giving it a lot of power. When ever i play my bass with this feature turned on, my room starts shaking and you can hear my dresser rattling because of the enormous power given off of this excellent amplifier. Another such great feature is the FBQ Equalizer. It lets you pick how much bass and treble you want your bass to have. I usally leave it with more bass and less treble becuase it does give a very nice bass.
This amplifier is very high quality. And an amazing price too. The sound i always get from it is so clean and riveting. Its really just an incredible buy for the price and its stunning play back. Out of all the time I've never had any feedback or any white noise. I'm in a little band and when i got this everyone in it was so impressed with it and said it was a marvelous choice.
The value on this thing is very appealing. Its price is very low for how much the Behinger bass amp sounds. If you heard this engaging amplifier play you would probably assume its one of those fancy higher priced amps. But its not, what a deal. i recommend this amp for anyone who likes deals and outstanding amplifiers for there musical needs.

I live in Alaska and play in a duo. We use guitar bass and backing tracks and sing. I use a 21 year old Peavey Mix 110 with a line out. Well, this was the year I felt I would "modernize" and buy a Behringer, as I've had good luck with their audio products. I'm very pleased at how good of quality their stuff is. It is probably because it's made in China and their workers make 100 dollars a month. Nevertheless, this amp came to me showing quality build. No loose parts, excellent appearance and materials. Most of the features are eye candy and the subharmonizer a waste of my time. The blinking eq is cute but ineffective. When I used this amp live, I found out to my dismay, this amp doesn't have a line out! And my 22 year old Peavey Minx did? Hello? Behringer? What happened? Anyway, I plugged it in and tried it anyway, and to my disappointment, the amp sounded muddy and lacked bottom end. When I turned up, I got a whoom whoom whoom and one note mixed into the next. After one night of this, the next day I plugged back in my old Peavey Minx 110 and ran a line into the pa. WOW! There's that tone! I'm really sorry, Behringer but you missed the mark on this one. Should have left off the eye candy eq, the 'harmonizer or whatever it's called' and worked more on a nice midrange tone that's selectable and at LEAST add a 1/4" line out. Then it might be something to use. Next time, maybe. P.S. I so didn't want this I paid to ship it back.

Good amp for the money!

By Skevelli

from The Great Northwest

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

The BXL900 is a great little amp for it's intended purpose: a practice amp. I've seen comments about it's limitations and of course there are a few, but price & wattage are clear indicators of that. If you want a "gig-rig" then go big. I stage up the big boy when we go out, but for sitting around the joint noodling, this one works just great! I'm currently playing a Fender J and a Peavey Unity thru a Zoom B2 digital stomp box & volume pedal into the BXL900 and then mic the amp to the board for a room size PA mix. Sounds great. Chan 1 delivers the standard punch & definition. Chan 2 with the shape, EQ & ultrabass variables, is able to dial up some good, fun & usefull sounds. Plenty of punch from the single 12 and duel ported back panel. Tilt back design is nice & it looks good too. As I said before, there are a couple of preference issues... I would like to see a 1/4" out on this amp. Phones is the only out and it cancels the cone. The CD In feature is not an ideal way for me to play along with an external audio source, so I find it a little silly. A footswitch jack to toggle between channels would be nice too, but hey, regardless of a few "feature" shortcomings, it's a very well built and versital practice/studio amp for under 2 bills. It does it's intended job very well, at least for this old bass player.

    The Behringer BXL900 is a great amp for home or practice. I've owned Behringer products before and haven't been let down. It's a good, punchy amp with a friendly price. Love the Ultrabass feature.

    For the price this amp can't be beat. I've owned the BLX3000 model also, and kick myself for letting it go.

    Good for whatever...

    By Alexander--rd_M

    from Springfield, MO

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    ...you want it to do. I play it at home for just personal practice. I play it with my band and it can keep up with our guitarists Crate half-stack.I can shake the whole house with it...The reason I gave the features an 8 is beacuse of the lack of extra hookups that the next model, BLX1800, has. For this model you get Imput, CD in, and Headphones. That's it. On top of that, the Ultrabass function is sweet and all...but I just stil havn't found a use for it. Still, the FBQ See-what-you-play feature is just amazing. Especially if you find the power bands on your bass. With that you can use the distortion channel and make almost any sound you want to.The quality is obvious. The only thing that I didn't see is that the covering is a felt type, not the scuff-free rubber. *shrug* It's still awsome.Overall, I would recommend this amp to anyone who loves to play and is wanting to step it up to the next level from begginer. I don't expect to be buying a new amp for a long, long time.

    An awesome amp

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    I got this amp about a week ago and I loved it. The sounds, effects, quality; it's all great. This amp only had 1 problem. Every 10 seconds this fuzzy breakup sound happened and then the speaker cancelled out for a couple seconds. I did what I could. I made sure that the plug-in cord wasn't being crushed by the amp and made sure the cable wasn't being crushed too. Then I fixed the jack on my bass and made sure the pickups were positioned right. I tightened the truss rod and replaced my junky cable. Now this amp sounds awesome. I just love it! Ever since I did some "fixing up", I haven't this problem once. The features are amazing, and I think that this was the cheapest solution for an amp that can be heard with a full band. It's also good for practicing. Due to what might happen to the speaker, I don't want to use the CD input or the Headphone jack. But overall, this amp rocks out loud, shakes the floor and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a first gigging amp. But this amp does what I want it to do: give me a good bass sound.

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    I have had this amp for almost a year now. It has performed as advertised. If you are looking to perform in a small venue with acoustic guitars and piano... this is perfect. Strong outer shell, easy to use. Looks good too. If you are looking to use it in a rock band, then you better go for more watts. For the value and the right venue, this is the amp for some players.

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    The amp is great for the most part. i bought it a while ago, it lasted for a while, but when i was playing with my band, it started to buzz, and conk out as though my bass had active electronics and the batteries had died. i turned it off, waited a few days, and it was fine.... until i played a g..... as soon as i did this the buzzing came back. the only other complaint is how heavy this dang thing is for its size.

    Bought this Amp a little over a year ago .... Took it to a small Gig and from the start, Speaker popping and sound cutting out.... Was Embarrased to no end ...Didnt like that it didnt have a DI for the mixer or a Speaker out so that I could use another speaker cabinet.... Ultra bass is a nice feature though .. All I use it for now is to raise my other amp off the floor. Sorry Behringer ... but NOT A GOOD AMP !! Bottom Line... Save for a better amp or Purchase another. I ahve been with Musician's Friend for over 20 years and this is the first thing that has been bad.

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    This amp is great if you're just jamming to some cds or something. However, it doesn't sound close to 90watts. I have a 30watt guitar amp that can over-power this. You'll be alright if your drummer plays light and if other people can keep their amps down some but they shouldn't have to. On the plus side, you can get a really nice sound out of this amp.So yea, volume is the only problem.

    Decent amp BUT.... not if you like it to rumble

    By Thumperman

    from NC

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    All in all it wasnt my kind of amp. Not a hater on this but I gotta have more low end and this wasnt for me. It is well suited for players that like alot of highs and heavy treble but if you want any rumble at all this isnt the amp you need.
    Ya , I know it only has a 12in speaker so I knew going in it wasnt going to give me a really deep tone so I did not have false illusions about what I was buying. That said I have to say it would be great for
    Geddy Lee type of player... the tone is solid and the ultra bass does add a nice fullness to the sound. As far as the 90 watts, well I was using a 60 watt Crate and to be honest it was about the same as far as volume except the Crate cut through the sound ALOT better. The EQ worked well and I liked the shaping . Fairly easy to haul around and the tilt back feature is AWESOME.

    I am a beginner bass player in a church band. I bought this amp used for a great price. It looks a couple years old, but works like new, which is great credit for behringer. I might get a little more power in a couple of years, but for now, the band is happy with this amp and the sound that it puts out. I like the cd in and the headphone in. I use all of the features of this great bargain. Great price for a decent bass amp. I'm happy!!

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    I bought this amp a few weeks back for my father who plays in the annual Christmas gig, the rest of the time I get to keep it(lucky me!). For alongtime musician I will tell you it is a steal for the price! We played a '62 Fender Precision through it and it sounded amazing. Fat, full, richtone. The 7 Band EQ and various controls let you shape the sound for any playing situation. The 2nd channel w/distortion is a nice bonus but not even necesssary. This thing will crank in any hall/club, micing it will only improve the sound. Great for beginners or pros who want an affordable work horse. Try to find one better at this price!

    ... Until I tried jamming with some friends and realized that a 70W speaker with a 90W head (what the heck were they thinking?) and no XLR output port made for a terrible time trying to play with three other people. As the adage goes, buy nice or buy twice. I can honestly say that after my experience with this terrible excuse for an amp, I'm never buying another Behringer product again.

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    i am a teenage musician and i have to play on a budget. I saw this amp and tried it. It was affordable and sounded great. Its size is all so very important because you don't need a half stack to practice but you need bigger than a 30 or 60 watt. Pros: Very Affordable, good size for practice and small gigsCons:the 180 is a little more expensive and is worth it even thought you might not need the extra 90 watts its good to have in reserve.Over all its a great bass like i said i kinda wish i had gotten the 180 for wattage issues but other than that its a very good amp i highly recommend this if you are a teenager and on a tight budget and are looking for something that is worth spend money on.

    By Wiley

    from Oregon

    Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

    The BXL900 really does perform for me. I use it with a 3-stringed Walkingbass. 90 watts may not be enough for a conventional band environment, but it is the perfect size to support an all acoustic group. The front panel has a lot of configuration options, if you're looking for a special sound. Since it is a "combo" amp, it does provide tweaking options for other instruments. Nice!For practice or small venues, where you're not in competition with a drum or lead guitar, this amp is a huge bargain.

    Bought to jam and play small 3 piece country/rock music. Didn't like it did not have a balanced line out but a direct box fixed that. It doesn't have a huge big sound but what does with a 12'' speaker. To me it is a great value, easy to setup and get a good tone. It is what it is, so overall I'm happy. I have had a P.A. system that is Behringer and have made some with it and still plays great. Cudos to you guys for having value priced equipment that does perform.

      Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

      So, I've owned this amp for about a year now. I use it in an acoustic trio, small PA, guitar, bass, assorted shakers and lots of harmonies. We usually play restaurants (indoors) where this amp has plenty of oomph. We recently played an outdoor gig on a patio at a hotel. I was a bit worried whether the amp could fill sound outdoors but it did just fine. All these reviews that say this amp clips are true, it will. I play active basses and when you crank it with the bass turned up, you can certainly make it "fart". If you EQ your amp and bass responsibly, you can actually get enough volume to play with drums. Forget the "ultrabass" feature (gimmick) and the dirty channel (really?) and enjoy the useful 7 band EQ, which does work. I've done many gigs with this amp, it's never let me down. For the small venues I use this amp for, it's great. And you can't beat the price.

      Behringer should not make amps.

      Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

      This thing is garbage. It completely stopped working after only using it for less than a month. I'm a guitarist and I bought this because I wanted to start playing bass and I thought that this would be a good amp to start with. I chose it because I thought it would be good for home practice and also loud enough for jamming with friends. What a mistake. It sounded terrible, its not loud at all, and there is nothing you can do to get a decent tone out of it. Learn from my mistake and do yourself a favor. Save up for a higher quality amp.

      from Danville, IL

      Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL900 90W 1x12" Bass Combo:

      I am new to playing bass, and needed an inexpensive amp that would be loud enough to be heard over my friend's drums. Not knowing what to expect, I bought this, . When I plugged my 1997 squier p bass into it, I was impressed. It had a nice sound. I gave it a 4.0 for features because the "see what you play" thing is prety much useless. The sub-harmonics processor can get some nice lows, but even if you have the level maxed out, it can't pick up the highs. I gave it a 4.5 on quality because the input jack comes loose very easily.
