Bass Amplifiers

Bass amplifiers are the link between bassist and audience. Bass is all about prominent low frequencies and deep bottom end that becomes the backbone of the band. We stock a wide range of the best bass amps available today, including top brands such as AmpegAshdownFenderHartke and TC Electronic. All items worth £99 or more and in stock are eligible for FREE Next Day Delivery, and also available to Reserve & Collect from any of our PMT Stores nationwide.


There is a big difference between conventional guitar amps and bass amps. The speakers, cabinets, and amplifier sections are all tuned to reproduce bass frequencies in the most efficient way.

Your choice of bass amp will be dependent on your tastes and the sound you desire. A Much sought after tone is that of the Ampeg SVT, a classic amplifier that screams 60s and 70s. However, those searching for a more modern punch often consider the fabled Ashdown EVO or the detailed sound of the Trace Elliot range.

Smaller amps are suitable for home practice, but if you're gigging you're better served by bass amps which provide at least 100-watts output.

So whether you're after the sharp attack of Mike Dirnt's Fender Pro stack or the subtle jazz tones of Marcus Miller, then PMT's Bass shop will have the right Bass amplifier for you.


At PMT we also offer a great selection of bass amp accessories such as covers, flighcases, footswitches and spare parts.
