Hi,

What bass amps are worth checking out for max $400 US? I would only consider purchasing a new amp. It will be connected to an Ibanez SR400, and will be used for a wide variety of music, so versatility is an important feature. Mainly it will be used for softer more jazzy type music, but will also be used for a bit of metal. I would rather quality over quantity, however it will need to be beefy enough to keep up with a 50 watt tube guitar amp.

What would be some amps worth checking out that would suit my needs? I dont know anything at all about bass amps so could use all the help i can get. The guy at the store reckoned we should go for this small crappy looking white marshall amp, but i dunno about that, i was thinking maybe a big randall or something, as their guitar amps are half decent for the money, but i really dont know, so please fill me in, any advice or recommendations would be great thanks.

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.

Thanks for the advice guys, unfortunately the B200 is unavailable in australia, what other amps would be worth checking out for this money?

Thanks

A Warwick Sweet 15.2 is also an option you should consider.
Gread sounding, versatile amps and definatly loud enough to keep up with a 50W guitar amp
