Hey, what's up UG
I need a new bass amp!
The one I have currently cannot support such low tones ie. My
5 string bass and produces a rattling sound.
I need an amp that I can play at small gigs and that won't drowned
in my drummers loud playing.
I was thinking something like this

Ampeg BA110 35W

Any help will be greatly appraciated!!

How about don't get that?

35 watts is a loud practice amp. do some searches, 200+ watts go, scroll down even there's 13 threads on amps on budgets for gigging right below

what's you budget?
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

As previously mentioned, a 35 watt won't hold up with a loud drummer. You should aim at atleast 200+ watts.

Plan to either spend a dickload of money to get a good sound out of your 5 string, or only play the top 4 strings.

GK RB 400 2x10 combo with a 1x15 extention cab. Sound great, pretty cheap and plenty of headroom if you ever need it.

Exactly this, while a 35 watt amp can provide enough volume it will lose a lot of clarity. All you'll be left with is a horrible distorted noise. Try and find yourself a good pre-owned amp.

That's from the US, I can tell without clicking the link that it will be a lot more expensive over here and even if you got the voltage converted (a 30 second job on those GKs) the shipping costs will kill you.
Where abouts in Aussie are you?
This Fender BXR 300 combo is a shitload of amp for $150.
This Kustom KB200 would be a good deal if you snagged it for the opening price, you probably won't have a lot of competition.
And a Ashdown Five Fifteen should get you where you want to go for $400.

+1 on the BXR I had the BXR200 for years and loved it, put wheels on it!

Even 15" speakers can't really do the Low B properly, there is still obvious tonal differences. In reality the only way I've found to reliably do the low B is either lots of compression or an 18" speaker.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

Hey man thanks for the links, but price isn't much of a worry as I have check the total cost for amazon to ship it here it it comes under $460aus whilst here in Australia the stores sells it for 1,200 haha.
So what's your best bet for around those amps?

That fender is 300 watts, that's a great amount, good headroom for cleans in nearly any situation, and also cheap
#16
Could use with a service though. And I'm very skeptical that you'll get that MB combo here for that much, plus what Nutter posted in your other thread about it only being rated at 51hz I don't think it's the best choice.
