Hi,

I need a bass amp, only for practicing at home, and maybe for jamming with mates (depends on the price). So I don't need to many Ws.

What do I play? '60s '70s rock music (Hendrix, Zeppelin, Clapton etc.), and some slapping.

Price range: I'm not sure, a few hundred $s.

Thanks in advance!

The Ampeg practice amp range is really good you could check them out!
maybe look at the Marshall MB series. i have the 30W and its fairly good and cheap aswell. it has a compressor which would be handy for slapping and a modern channel thats warm like a vintage tube amp!
hope that helps

Thanks, but they are barely available in my country. The Marshall looks nice, and it's available on thomann.de for a fair price But I prefer buying it in Hungary, so any more recommendations are more than welcomed!

I would say stay clear of boththe Marshall and the Ampeg practise amps. You can get far more for your money.

Will you want to be able to play with drums?

No, I will mainly use it for home practice, and maybe to play with guitarists sometimes.

Then there are a load of 'approved' practise amps in the FAQ. However, you will need guitarists that don't like cranking their amps.

I can't get the Ashdown in Hungary, what do You think about the Warwick Blue Cab 30? It's pretty cheap, great reviews, I like the brand, and it looks pretty good I was thinking about the Peavey max 110 too, anybody know them?

Well, I have a Peavy max 128 (little 10W model) and it is a pretty good practise amp, and wasn't bad to me for my first year.

I also have a Warwick Sweet 15, which is damn good. If the Blue Cab has a similar sound, I can only recommend it tonally, and Warwick are normally convervative with their wattage ratings, so you get plenty of power for the size of the amp.
