Hey guys. I need some advice on bass amps for less than $200. I would like a solid state, at least 75 watt, and at least 12in. speaker. Any advice is great. Thanks.

Not even possible.

Budget is way too smal for asking something like that.

You can look used- Guitar Center tends to have good deals on used amps, and any independent music store should, as well. I don't know what they run used, but the Peavey TKO-115 from the late 90's and the early 2000's was a fantastic amp. 100 watts, solid state, 1x15, with graphic EQ and an effects loop. I'd definitely look into that.

Wat.

@op:

Yea. That's over his budget. For under 200, it's not possible, unless you find some stupiddeal

This one on Guitar Center's used gear place.
$109.99.

Acoustic B100. 100W, solid state, 12 in speakers.
Shipping = ~$30-40
Tax = ~$7

They have 3 other ones for $120
more for $130.


So yes, it is possible.

Even better, OP can have this shipped to his/her local GC and not pay for shipping at all. I highly recommend this option.

I heard GC doesn't do free shipping to stores for used gear anymore. At least not when I tried to buy something from them :P

^ Yea; but, I scored a Used EV 215 cab with EVM15L + EVM15B + mid-range speaker for something like $10 shipping, very reasonable.

When you get it shipped to your local GC, you can test it and play with some other cool basses.
