My band is getting more serious, and we're hoping to play some gigs soon. Unfortunately, I just have a tiny practice amp that I've been using at practices. I turn it up all the way in practice, and it's still overpowered by the drums. I basically just need an amp that will be good for playing small gigs.

I have an Ibanez soundgear bass, and I'm in a pop punk/rock type band. I also take lessons in which I learn primarily blues and jazz. I have about 350 dollars right now, but I would be willing to save up to 500 dollars.

I would very much appreciate your help.
