as far as we know, you're opening for the RHCP with this amp.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

for under $500, i say used amps are your best option. look at Ampeg, Ashdown, Carvin, Eden, Fender, GK, Hartke, Peavey, SWR, and Trace Elliot. that should keep you busy a while. i'm not a fan of Crate, for gigging bass amps, and there are some new comers on the block such as Line 6, and Warwick but the jury is still out on those, imo. and if you happen across a Mesa Boogie, or MarkBass in your price range, buy it.
Hartke and Carvin make the best gigging amps, IMO. That's only if you like the sound of them, though.
Nope, no sig here.

well, you could go vintage, and try to find a good old bass amp on ebay like i did.
I use a Fender BXR300c and am perfectly happy with it.
