Peavey TNT 115.


I love mine, luckily I picked mine up for $200 used.

The new models are right at $575.

Just a combo?

It'a a solid 200 watts if you eventually get an extension cab.

edit: Beaten to it, though it's the TKO(little brother) that's $575, the TNT is a little more expensive. You can get it for under $600 though.

Edit again: If you can find one used or on sale there's also a bigger model

dude, for 650 i bought and ampeg BA115-HPT

its a 1x15 with 200 watts i believe... its got a tube preamp as well, little bastard is nice enough to play without a PA when rehearsing, and when through a PA, sounds like your classic AMPEG sound.

love the thing to death...

Ashdown MAG or Peavey TNT for me. I hate those cheap Ampegs - they sound really crap to be honest.
#7
****, thing sounds mint dude... i actually had guys with full stack ampegs that were wondering how the sound came out of that little thing when it was through the PA, but to each his own i suppose

Well every time I've tried them I've been disappointed, and I love the sound of an SVT or a flip-top but the BAs just sounded like someone had thrown a towel over the speaker and the tone controls were pretty ineffective.

well, i agree with the older models, but i was pleasantly suprised with this BA115-HPT.. its a new model that has the tube preamp, which might be the reason for the better tone and overall sound...

i couldnt afford an SVT lol

It only has a single tube in the pre-amp. If anything, ampeg is just using that as a marketing scheme.

I would go for this combo: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ashdown-MAG-C410T300-Combo-Bass-Amp?sku=485034

If you don't have any inhibitions about trying out an amp before you play it however, look at one of these combos: https://www.carvinguitars.com/products/single.php?product=BR610

That's my amp, and as far as I'm concerned, it's a fantastic amp.
Reliable, versatile and powerfull enopugh for most situations.

I wouldn't get Ashdown or Ampeg if you're looking for something versatile. They both got a very typical sound that will fit msot genres, but it will allways be an ampeg / ashdown sound.
Not that they are bad amps, they just aren't exactly versatile.

+1 for the Ashdown amp. I don't know what bass you have, I happen to use an Ibanez, and it sounds AWESOME with the Ashdown amp. Just go down to your local music store and try out the amps in your price range with YOUR bass and see which tone is the best. You can look online all day long, but it's not going to tell you the sound it will produce with your exact amp. Save yourself some time and just go to your music store
