  • Economy Drum Amps/Monitors

    I am considering Fender's new model Bassman 60 with the horn for a stage monitor/practice amp. Any comments, reviews or suggestions? I am on a limited Church budget.

    I would try for a keyboard apm instead. The speaker range will suit the drums better. 60 watts may not be enough either. For a church setting it maybe OK but you are at the low end may be more wise finacial to spend a litle more on a bigger apm then buy one that doesn't have enough power. When playing church I usual like the headphones but the church just got a new building and PA where the monitors being to loud is the problem. A used keyboard amp maybe your best/cheapest bet.

      I tried one of these Fender Bassman 60 amps at a local music store (on a TD-6 v-custom set)and it sounds great. The kicks are tight and the cymbals are clear. I have a Crate keyboard amp that sounds like crap (even with a 15" speaker). The Fender has a 12" but the horn is about a 3x12 down the while front. See it at http://www.fender.com/amplification/bassamps/60.html
