I guess that's more common than we like to believe in life.

That's true. Of course, even though Marshall might not technically be making bass amps right now, there's no reason anyone could just play bass through a Marshall amp, as long as the speakers can handle it. That's what they pretty much did in the first place. Although, I think their bass designed amps had a different voicing to them to try and match up with the bass tones, maybe giving them a darker sound, or something like that. Guitarists used them, anyway.

It wasn't that unusual to play them for bass, or change out the speakers for bass play.

I think those Celestion speakers that were favored for guitarists in Marshall cabs, were meant for bass, from what I've read somewhere.

With Marshall who could tell. If there were, that would explain how some bass players were doing ok with using Marshall 100's, or 200's.

You know, there's a part of me that wishes I could run the bass through a Marshall head, even though I'm sure the Ampeg and/or the Fender is a lot better for that. Something a little different, albeit a blast from the past, but I'd still use the bass cab. I know Chris Squire ran both a Marshall and an Ampeg with his Rickenbacker, using that stereo output. John Paul Jones did a similar thing with his solo stuff, but he used Fender guitar and SWR amps at the time.

Yeah, and a few other people. Lemmy from Moterhead still used them, with a 4 x 15" and 4 x 12" cabs. In fact, he had a signature series with Marshall with that. If you want to get nasty with your bass, you can't go wrong there. Not the best for a deep, clean tone, though, but then again, that's why there's a ton of bass amps out that will do that for you.

True, there were bass amps around that would do serious deafening issues for a long time. For a good while too, they were pretty expensive.

Yeah, even up until maybe the past 10 years or so. They weren't cheap, and really not so many, too. I think that's why I used Peavey so much in my earlier years was because it was cheaper to buy, and it had some power to it. Plus, they were built like tanks, too. Then all of the Class D stuff came out, and I guess the manufacturing went overseas, and the prices went down, as we see now. Who knows what's going to happen with this tariff stuff, though? :roll:

The tariffs can really screw things up on the over seas manufacturing. The technology has really gotten amazing as well, and cheaper too.

That's true. Imagine things like 1000 watts, and weighing 5 pounds.

Very good example. Way back when I was really working on the road, I have never thought it would be possible for an amp head like that.

Yeah, I imagine not. Technology certainly has come a long way.

I wonder how much further it can be developed.
