Hello fellow bassists, in my recent decision to buy a new bass...

So here's the deal, prodominantly an ampeg... 1000 dollar limit... prefer not to get a combo.... and i play anything but metal!
Dazzle me! other reccomendations also!

This. No matter what anyone recommends, you need to try out a bunch. I'm an Ampeg user, but that's after I tried out a bunch of others.

I played an Ampeg SVT 3 pro and I have to say it is the best sound I've heard in a while. Liked it so much I decided to get one soon. You can find em used for around 400. As for a cab, I'll let others suggest because I'm still confused as what to get (Cab-wise) also.

Ampeg makes their amps in China as of recently, which I don't like. I would suggest:

EBS, Carvin, Glockenklang..

I own the Carvin Neo 4x10 cab and it rips!

I heartily recommend an Orange Terror Bass 500 running through an SP410 cab. The cab is one of the most solid things I have ever seen/dropped, and the head gives you some of the best value for money out there.

Also, they're small and don't take up lots of room in the car/bus, therefore, excellent for touring.
