Looking to buy a new bass amp - budget of appx. 750 USD.

I play metal/hard rock along the lines of Mudvayne, tool, Incubus - I love to pop/slap. I'm using an ESP with active humbuckers (EMG) in it.

As I love pop and slap, punchy tone is very important, but I'd also like an amp versatile enough to smooth out if necessary.

Thanks in advance - I've got a couple in mind, but I wanted UG's opinions.

What have you played and what do you like. Do you want a combo, or head cab. Do you like 10's,12's or 15's. Do you like transparent or colourful.

Well, I've played on a ton, and I've gotta say I like Ampeg's low end - it's tight but still very .... 'rumbly' haha... The other stuff I've played on are just smaller practice amps for home use...

I'd definately prefer a combo with multiple speakers if possible... Not really picky about a tweeter/horn.

As far as interest, I've heard REALLY good things about Acoustic, but I've never tried one hands on. If I was thinking on them, I'd have to order them via mail.... Heard good stuff about Gallien Krueger as well...

Sorry it's somewhat vague - I haven't touched a bass or bass amp seriously since late 80's early 90's.

I would say try and find some good 300 watts 1x15 combos, that allow for an exension cab. This way you can ad a 2x10 on later.

You could get a nice Carvin combo for that price. I'd definitely look into it.
