I was looking at the amps to go along with my jazz bass when I get it. I saw the fender bassman 150 amp and thought it sounded like a good amp. Do any of you know anything else about this amp and is there a better one out there for the same price?

I've dealt with a few Fender bass amps and I'm sure this a fine amp.

I see it's a 150 watts with a tilt cab design. Should be fine. What do you need it for? Gigs or just practice?

Its pretty much the best 150 watt amp out there for the price and the features and tone. Only complaint is that when i crank it full i can't hear myself at band practices... So this isn't really ideal for playing live or loud band practices unless you have a PA.

It's really not a 'gigging' amp. It's more of a monitor for standing 2 feet away from than a proper amp. It's speaker size and power handling are lacking. But for what it is, it's great.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Both really. I will use it more for practice but you never know when a gig will come along.

for that price get the gallien-krueger backline 210... it doesnt cost much more and it has more wattage so it is probably more gigable... i played it at guitar center... its good for the price

The bassman sounds beautiful for the price, but like most people said it won't be loud enough standing alone for a gig (maybe not even practice, if your band plays at unnecessary volumes). You can always D.I. to a PA if that's an option, though. You can get a louder amp for the same amount of money, less even, but it won't sound as pretty.
