Ok so i've been playing bass for about a year now and when i started out the sales rep conned me into buying a behringer amp rather than the crate i was looking into simply because i thought i was getting more power for my money. I was completely mistaken and currently hate this amp with a passion.

Does anyone have suggestions for a better quality amp for some where in the range of 50-100W and for anywhere between $200-$500?
It is still my opinion that a lightning rod atop of a church shows a lack of confidence.

but you should go to the store and try some out, there are heaps of amps in that price range for practise and we dont know what tone you want

My problem is that i live in an incredibly small town and i don't have the option to go to the nearest guitar center on a whim (which is 500 miles away), so i try to do a bunch of research to find out what there is out there in between trips.

but as for tone i'm looking for something versital as i play many styles, from metal to jazz.

500 miles? Holy shit dude, I don't know if ANYWHERE in the continental US is 500 miles from a guitar center.

I would suggest going for some sort of a used combo. A Fender Bassman 250, Ashdown Mag, there are some more options available to you. If you can scrounge an extra 100 bucks, you can get a Carvin combo.
