What's a really good 25-35 W amp that's like awesome as hell...cuz i have a mum and I'm 16 i shouldnt have such a massive amp that takes up my room so i want to get a decent 25-35 W amp (cuz my 15 W sucks Hard). I've been looking at the Peavey, Ibanez, Laney, and Behringer range..i dont want fender cuz it's too expensive (or roland). so recommend amps that are decent and decently priced..thank you

First of all re-type your thread in an understandable manner, there are people on this forum where English is a second language, it may seem cool to type as you have done but it certainly isn't clever.
To your question, very few if any so called Bass amplifiers under 100 watts sound very good and that is because the speakers in them are as cheap as they can get away with supplying in a cheap amplifier.

I think the ashdown will be your best bet, the SWR and the Crate might be too expensive for you but since you didnt specify a price range I threw them in there anyway...and forget about behringer amps, if you want a cheap amp that will have a 50-70% chance of crapping out on you (in some way or another) and sounding like crap in the first place then fine, buy one...

If you want a massive amp, look beyond 25-35 watts... I haven't heard of many 115's or 4x10 combos (assuming you aren't tryignt to find a 25 watt head) that pump 25-35. But if you find 8 inch speakers huge, you are all set.

Orange has a really awesome practice amp that I believe is 30 watts or very close. It's like $200 tops, too.

Sorry about the bad English (I'm 16, what do you expect). But you guys aren't really helping me, so instead, i'm going to ask who has Peavey and Ibanez Bass Amps and would you recommend them.

I'm also 15 and don't speak like that..

I played on a Peavy 35w the other day and it sounded ok. £150.

Sorry didn't realise you were from Sydney, what were you family transported for?
Bass amps below 100 watts don't have decent speakers, 35 watt amps distort and the speakers fart, 6 months down the line you'll be wanting to upgrade.

The peavey one is weird it doesn't have a volume knob...
The peavey does have a volume control as well as gain, it also has a 12" speaker, I'd still go for one of the 15" budget range Ashdowns though, you'll soon want to upgrade with either of these, 12s & 10s are ok in multple speaker setups, 15s will work on their own.

According to www.peavey.com The Max 112 doesn't have a volume control. Or is Master Volume and Volume different?

No not really in this case, also the DDT or whatever on peavey gear usualy limits bottom end bass response.
