About Bass Amp Heads

Bass Amp Heads are the top part of a bass amp stack. The bass head is what you plug your bass guitar into. It contains the circuits that produce the tone and the control knobs to change your settings.

Bass amp heads do not work on their own: they need to be connected to a bass speaker cabinet. Bass heads are made by a large number of companies. They can be made to use solid state or valve technology as well as hybrids of both. These choices determine sound, weight and cost.

We have a huge selection of bass amp heads available to browse online and try in-store. 

Why Do I Need a Bass Amp Head?

  • Flexibility to change settings and combine your amp with different bass cabs
  • Essential for matching volume levels to your gig size without compromising sound 
  • More portable than bass combos

Frequently Asked Questions about Bass Amp Heads

Question: Can I use a guitar cabinet with a bass head?
We don't recommend it. The whole point of playing bass is to provide a large, confident low end. Much of that low end will be lost if you play through a guitar amp since guitar amps are aimed far more at the mid frequencies than the bass ones. While certain genres support the use of mixed cabinets (a guitar cab and a bass cab used together) for electric guitars, there is no particular stylistic benefit to doing this with bass. Having said that, progress is made through experimentation so by all means try it out! Just be careful to work out ohmage and so on so you don't damage yourself or your gear.
Question: What is better for a bass head: valve or solid state?
We believe that there is no 'better'. There is simply what you prefer the sound of or what works for you in practical terms. Both have their benefits and both have their drawbacks. Some companies like Mark Bass also produce 'hybrid' heads that give you a little of both, bridging the gap.
