Right, there seem to be so many guitarist around and so few bassists that it's difficult to get a decent band going. So i'm considerering switching to bass.

I found a reasonably priced active bass, a Washburn XB120. If that's not a wise choice tell me now.

I've looking through some bass amps of a gig-worthy size but i haven't seen anything that's caught my eye that's not ridiculously priced. So do you have any suggestion for a good bass amp?

I don't know anything about 'em, but I've been looking into some bass amps too, for my bassist. So far, anything from 160-300 watts solid state is gig worthy.
So far, what have looked liked decent solid states - as with bass, I don't think a valve amp being sonically superior isn't as much of an issue, includes:

Cool, thanks. Nah i don't think tubes in a bass amp is as neccesary for a good sound as a guitar. Any other suggestions, preferably from experience.

Hmm, I've always wondered if Bassist had to worry so much about tone as guitarists do.
