Hey UG.
I'm a fairly good bassist specialising in funk and slap-style playing, but i'm in need of a new amplifier. My knowledge in the amp-area is little to none. I play both an OLP MM2 stingray copy and a Fleabass model 32, but my current amplifier (my second, which is a laney hardcore max, and not the most appropriate for the style I like :P) is the wrong kind to have.

Can anyone suggest some good amps i might buy? with a $500 budget, or thereabouts.
