aight so i'm gonna get a new amp because i use a warwick thumb bass and my current piece of shit fender cannot handle the raw power i need/use so here'e what i'm thinking

Ampeg BA500 500 Watt 2x10 Bass Combo Amp $1,170

Gallien-Krueger 400RB/210 Bass Combo Amp for $975

or i just take out a loan and get

Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II Head/410SBX Cabinet for about $1,700

any suggestions on alternates if you don't like these (no pevey)

im just a fan of half stacks so i'd take the loand and get the gk 1001rb-11 head with the 4 by 10 cab but im sure that the ampeg should be good, i havent played the ba combo series yet though
