Ok so I'm a pretty serious guitarist who does some home recording so i bought a cheap bass practice amp (Rocktron 25 watt) and a decent bass (schecter). Im primarily a guitarist so so i dont know to much about bass gear. Recently I played bass for a folk singer and just followed along with his chords cuz they where pretty easy. The owner was pretty impressed (they dont get to much bass players so they thought it was alot harder than it is) and had me playing with all these folk, country, and folk rock type stuff ie stones dylan CCR stuff like that. So i need a decent bass amp preferably around 300$ US but im willing to go a little higher. I would like it to be simple just basic EQ and volume.

Lookin for somethin punchy and with a good deal of low end but as i said im not a bassist so i actually thought my rocktron sounded decent until i tried out an ampeg. I know that i'm not going to be able to get the SVT or anything like that but i just need something for backing singer songwriters who want to play with a band.

What applications are you going to need it for? For most gigs, people will recommend at least 300W, which you won't get for $300.

This is at a small coffee shop and the drummers either play with brushes or very quietly with sticks. How loud will it need to be to compete over this

you might be a able to find a fender rumble 100 watt very simple eq but sounds great

just over 300 and well worth it. i gig in bigger places than coffe shops with it and its heard great. ifind that the 300 watt rule is just a basic jist and less than that is generally fine.

The rumber series define 'ok'. They are just really not great sounding, but are hard to fault.

I would look for around 150W, which wuld suggest either the Ashdown MAG 300 or the Warwick Sweet 15.

+1 Ashdowns are great amps for the price.

This.

I've just laybuy-ed myself a Sweet 15.2, they sound really really good, and have a graphic EQ in them as well.
