SWR 350 x , Eden WT300 or Marshall DBS 7200

Recommended Posts

Hey ,

Once again in need of amp advice, Looking for another bass head for under £300 and these are the one's that have come up on here and else where.

SWR 350 x , Eden WT300 or Marshall DBS 7200

I've currently got a DBS 2x10 1x 15 cab and play a 60 re-issue MIJ Jazz, Audere JZ3 pre on board , Gotoh bridge , Elixir strings, back ups a MIJ Precision. I play real broad range of music so need something versatile with a good level of loudness and punch.

I'd just like to know peoples thoughts about the amps mentioned and any other ideas ? I've heard quite a bit about the WT300 over heating which is a bit worrying as one of my previous amps was a Superfly which suffers from the same problem and caught me out doing a Queen tribute theatre show! thank god for my audere pre which meant I could just connect in a DI but was a nightmare, right at the start of Bo rap! ha. Saying that though have heard a great deal of positives for the WT300 aswell.

Any help appreciated. there all used amps so quick advice would be best welcome! ha

cheers

Mike

The only amp I`m anywhere near familiar with of those is the Marshall. I had the DBS 7400, and it was a real powerhouse. Quite heavy though - about 22 kg. But the sound was great.

Another vote here for the DBS. I've not used either of the others, but since I've had my 7200, I've had no issues, considering that I play with a drummer louder than an earthquake and two full stacked guitarists. My sound is always clear and punchy

I have an older SWR 350 (with a red front). Not sure how much the newer "X" changed, but mine is fabulous.

Although I still use it regularly, and love it for "normal" volumes, I keep another for louder gigs. The 350 seems to lose bottom end when pushed hard.
