I've been playing for 3 years now. All on the same bass and amp. Both equally ****ty. I have a Squier P-Bass and a Fender Rumble 15G or something.

Should I get a new amp or bass first?

Amp, you could have the ****tiest bass and it wouldnt matter with a good amp, not the other way around.
By reading this magnificently and wonderful, adjective-filled signature, you have just wasted approximately 7 seconds of your life.

i made the mistake of buying a new guitar before i bought a new amp. it is very disappointing to have a badass guitar (or bass in your case) and a ****ty amp to play it through.

amp. the Acoustic makes Ab50's- no gain control, makes it's own feedback, but very nice tone for $200.
fifty watts though... try and find something bigger in the wattage if you can. and with less feedback. that amp would be perfect if it wasn't for that. grr.

Follow-up Question. My dad told me to get $250, and he'd pay $250 for a $500 amp. Is there any good $500 bass amps? Any recommendations?

ashdown and Gallien Krueger make some nice gear
so does acoustic, but nobody stocks any of their amps louder than 50watts.

One word of caution on the GKs, their gear under 500 USD does not have a good rep, esp. the combos. I was given a GK 112 Backline as a birthday present and its a nice loud practice amp, but I wouldn't even consider gigging with this puppy.

Amp.

You will be surprised how nice your Squier will sound with a good amp.

amp defiantly you could get a 100watt fender rumble amd i think its really cheap in the us if thats were you live or its 450 or so in euros new
#16
Yeah, definitely get the amp. There's not a worse feeling than playing a professional level bass through a crappy practice amp.

For under $500, I'd get this:

Then I'd try and save for another 8 ohm cab to get the full 300 watts from the Ashdown.
