Drop B? Yuck...buy a 5 string....like...seriously.

What is your price range? That's another big factor.

oh you are going to want something with at least 300 watts, well any guitar can be plugged into a bass amp and so ok or good as the bass amp covers all frequencies. not the same for guitar as it covers mids. Queens of the stone age have distiinct sound want to know why? its because they use Ampeg bass and guitar amps, the guitars sometimes are going through bass amps. and please do not use behringers, they dont last that long and arent very good to begin with.

well if your on a tight budget than you are really in the shit hole right now, you could try getting a stack or a combo, if you get a stack then look at the Ashdown Mag300 and maybe a 115 or 210 cabinet. you can also look into Galiien Krueger. it might be better for you because it has distortion (Backline 600). how many watts is your guitarist running? what type of amp is he using?

haha your scaring me man

one of the guitarist has a extra cab would it be ok to buy a bass head and then use a guitar cab

probably wont be a great idea because that cab probably doesnt have a good wattage ratting for a bass head and you might have to change the speakers out. im not sure it could work but probably not the greatest idea as they arent really made for lower frequencies

Your trying to start an empire with $5, and a beef and bean burito. Slow down, Look at Fenders, or even better for your price range- Squier. They have 5-string versions around $300, then with the extra $100, go look at some amps. Your not going to be able to go out and buy a stack. So get something smally around 50watts or so. Check out Peavey on the amps. And don't buy a Behringer, they may look good, and they are cheap. But I mean they're cheap in more than one way. And don't start playing bass just because you want to be in a band. Thats one of the worst things to do. Play it because you love the instrument.
