Yer need to set sail for ya' neares' Guitar-Center or SoundControl n' give the amps a try.

After all, yer will 'av it for a few years so yer need it to be good.

Think of yer amp as ye rudder on ye ship, its vital that it wont fail ye while yer out at sea. Otherwise you'll av a mutiny on yer 'ands when the ship mates want to dock.

He needs prices in USD.

To be honest, you won't find anything gig worthy and great sounding in that price range.

This is an odd dilemma since you really can't something good and loud in that range. Perhaps a nice Aguilar or Sadowsky DI box would satisfy you? Will you be gigging somewhere where there's a PA system? At bestbassgear.com there's a new Aguilar DI that should be for sale soon, $189. Or maybe a lovely SansAmp? If there won't be a PA you can't even get one of those new Roland cube amps and mic it.

That was decidely pompous.

used is your only option in this price range. look for used Peavey TNT's or simular amps. i strongly recommend a 1x15" at a minimum. single 8"s and 12"s, won't cut a live situation. i don't even endorse a 2x10", on their own, for live sets.
either buy used, or save some money.

Edit: just for the record, i've been playing a long time, and i have never bought a "brand new" amp. the used market is just a better, bang for the buck, choice.

The way I see it you can: buy a real junky new amp, and all right used amp, or buy a DI like the SansAmp or BBE. With these you won't have an amp but you'll take your sound and shoot it directly to the board and you'll go through the PA. None of the options are perfect, but on your budget it's pretty hard to accommodate.

I'm just curious, I feel like I've seen a bunch of people talking about making their main amp (or "hardcore serious gig amp") an amp with 45 watts or less. What's that all about? I thought it was pretty much unheard-of to use a bass amp with less than 100 watts. Plus, you usually need to double the guitarist, right? So are these people deluding themselves, or what?

anything under 100 watts in the bass amp world that is not a solo practice amp is a waste of money. You need a minimum and i mean a bare bare minimum of 100 watts and a 15" speaker to gig and be resonably heard at practice.

I find that laneys don't take downtuning very well and it goes incredibly muddy.
