Hybrid Combo Bass Amplifiers
The bass guitar doesn’t always get the credit it deserves. The solos may be few and far between in popular music, but it doesn’t matter, a bass guitar has a far more important role than showing off. Without the bass holding down the rhythm section and keeping the groove alive, your songs will be missing a crucial ingredient, which is why it is wise for any bass player to invest in a Hybrid Combo Bass Amplifier. Hybrid bass amplifiers help to put an end to the age old argument about which is better: tube or solid state amps. They do this by combining â€œthe best of both worldsâ€ so to speak. That is to say they include tubes alongside a solid state power section. This allows the amp to produce a â€œtube toneâ€ without actually requiring the use of power tubes. The end result is the classic tube tone that so many love, without the constant upkeep and maintenance that a purely tube amp requires. The big advantage in choosing a combo bass amp over a separate head and speaker cabinet is portability. Being one unit makes them easier to load in and out of gigs as well as transport in general, plus, the components are already ideally matched to one another, so you won’t have to pick and choose different head and speaker combos looking for the right sound. When it comes down to it, the best hybrid combo bass amplifier option for you is going to come down to which one produces the kind of sound you’re looking to get from your bass. If you’re looking for a muscular bottom end that will leave the ground shaking, the Terror Bass 500W 2x12 Hybrid Bass Combo Amp from Orange is certainly worth a look. On the other hand, if you’re looking for some serious versatility that sounds as good on the road as it does in the studio, you may want to check on the VX Series VX3500 350 Watt 4x10" Bass Combo Amp from Hartke. There’s really no right or wrong amplifier, just different ones that suit different needs. The thrill of that low end rumble is one of the best parts of playing the bass guitar, so you owe it to yourself to have a hybrid combo bass amplifier that can keep up with your sound. Whether you’re playing in your practice room or on the road with the band, one of these top notch amps will help keep you and your fans grooving.
