Best Bass Amp Brands


The Top Ten

1 Gallien-Krueger

I like USA products

The Number One

It's the first

the best

2 Ampeg

Awesome amp

Got a Ampeg BA115 and its brilliant. Always got good tone control and a diverse tone range. It has guts to it.

After owning 5 bass heads I finally found the match for me.
Had my SVT for three years. I play through it daily. Perfect so far.

The SVT is the best bass amp I have ever played through.

3 Hartke


Love my Hartke's! Very customizable eq and enough power for me. Thank Larry!


Great sound at a great price. Over 20 years with Hartke without a hitch. Must add that Ampeg runs neck and neck.

4 Peavey

Peavey make fantastic bass amps.

5 Trace Elliot

Trace Elliot V8 Bass Head... the holy grail 👍

6 Orange
7 Fender

Great for most gigs

Fender mashes my potatoes

Use a bssmn 800 with 2 cabs for large venues, fender rumble 200 for smaller venues.

8 Laney


9 Ashdown

Old school but good stuff (ABM series)

Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, System of a Down... says it all really. Real amps for real bands.


10 TC Electronic

Great piece of kit.

John Paul Jones plays TC Electronic bass rig. He's the man!

The Contenders

11 MarkBass

Just the best compact bass combos, at any price.

Nicer than other brand
i prefer on every heads

Just exceptional in every way to be honest.

The CMD102P. You try finding another 300w bass combo that weighs 17Kg and that delivers a clean punchy sound.

12 Mesa Boogie

Great tone... What else can I say. Absolutely amazing.


13 Eden

Like butter

The most satisfying tone I have ever had the pleasure of using.

Love the rich, tube/preamp tone.
Great power. I liked it much better than my Ampeg, although Ampeg had more power.

14 Aguilar

One of the best. Made by bass players for bass players.

15 Acoustic
16 Behringer

Cost-effective, great complete-neck-response for Rics, Steinbergers and Hofners. And, they're LOUD!

17 Marshall

Why is Ibanez on here twice?

18 Warwick

Kicks metal as. One of the best.

19 Phil Jones
20 SWR
21 Line 6
22 Roland

Don't know how they are now to be honest, but I've got a Supercube Bass 100 from the 80s with a 15" woofer that kicks some serious butt, particularly for its size...
