Re: Ashdown Vs115 vs. Vs112

I don't really need big right now, but I need bigger than a practice amp, and I'm trying to cut costs

Re: Ashdown Vs115 vs. Vs112

Hey again. This is probably a stupid question: Heads are very expensive. Would I be able to use a my practice amp as one while saving up for a proper one? I know I'd need a patch cable and stuff, but just wondering if a might be able to buy one of those above without doing any damage?

Actually, the risk of tsunami is incredibly high, according to my environmental sciences lecturer. Shouldn't really go into it, cos you'll wanna go underground :lol:

Ashdown Vs115 vs. Vs112

Re: Show us your Bass!

Maybe we can have a "lightest bass" competition on the 27th. I have a Cort Action-A that's pretty damn light
