Thanks guys!
Sorry for the slow response. yeah i did mean i would like alot of headroom :P Im having a second look into ampreg's heads and cabs.
@Ian hawkins my favouite bassists are: Paul Mc, Krist Nov, Nate mandel, JPJ (ofc and John entwil.

Thanks for the feedback so far guys.
After looking at all the comments I see that I should go for a Head+Cab over an combo so I will look into some of these.
Anymore advice would be great.
@Road aha I wish
I'm really no sure about Heads and Cabs :/
Hmmmm, would you strongly recommend heads and cabs?
It would be alot more hassle with practicing and stuff and I'm not sure how they work and stuff.
And RE: getting hold of.. how do you mean? I would probably get over the net.
Hey guys,
I'm looking to up my amp into the next stage or so.
I currently have an Ashdown Electric Blue:
http://www.ashdownmusic.com/bass/detail.asp?section=eb&ID=103

I play grunge,rock, heavy rock and blues.
I have a 2010 Rickenbacker 4003
I play small/medium sized gigs where my current amp doesnt cut it.
What amps would you recornmend?
I have a budget of around 600 or so pounds...
It would be quite nice to have a really powerful amp so its really loud at low levels if you get my drift.
I have tried a few ampegs and am not impressed and fancy sticking with Ashdown because I really like their build etc.

I have been considering these:

What do you guys think? What do you suggest?
How do I do this? Remove strings, unscrew Pickguard? I'm abit hesitant to go fishing around in electronics D:
Hey,
I have an 2010 Rickenbacker 4003.
Its been lovely and such but recently whenever I plugged I plug my jack into it my Treble sound always comes and goes (the treble pickup is cutting in and out). It is effected by the angle of the lead (if i hold it, it works).
I have brought new good quality leads but that doesn't seem to help.
The bass tone/sound works prefectly, no issues there.
What is the problem? And how do I fix it?

P.s I am a recording tomorrow and have a decent gig on Thursday so any help quickly would be greatly received.
Awesome can anyone link one online?
Guys In honesty I inherited the money. HOWEVER, I have just finished off paying for it myself. I worked all summer at Argos and earnt two grand . So i have payed for it myself :L
I shall get some rotosounds asap, Also I'm going to get a distortion/effects pedal when I get my next pay day. can someone surgest a good one?
Hmm can someone link me the bass strings? I can only find roto's for "swing" basses :/
Lemon song = Stfu
Awesome thanks for the advice - I understand that the DR's are not the best strings but they always grab attention - which I dont care about anymore. The rick itself can do it :L
We bassists are lonely and forgotten animals. 7 out of 10 people know who Led Zep are, 1 out of 20 know who the mighty John Paul Jones is. :/ </3
I know:

Thats the share with public
I work so ****ing much :L Hmm i put that album as "everyone" I'll check it in a second.
I play hard rock, blues and sometimes punk I always tend to use a very bassy tone but it seems a waste of a rick.

Hey guys I brought a brand new midnight blue Rickenbacker 4003 a few months ago, I love it so much! The action, tone etc but I have a few questions:

Firstly, I'm thinking of getting a better amp because im not sure if it is doing it justice I have a ashdown 160 watt combo do i need an upgrade?

Secondly, I'm abit of a noob when it comes to tone could someone give me tips about getting a tones (i know about treble and bass but have no clue and compression, subharmonics, EQ, mids)

Thirdly, What strings will be best for it? I currently have: http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=yellow+bass+strings&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=13876159142265331334&sa=X&ei=iSBgToysNoHNhAfJj60T&ved=0CB8Q8wIwAQ

Lastly, can anyone give me details about the price of it over time? How much will it go down/up and are they rare.

Heres a picture of it:

i have one of these babys. ashdown is also a very well know and specialised brand (they only make bass amps) you can get pretty much an tone you want. i paid 240 GBP for mine (brand new) a year ago and its still awesome, perfect for small to medium gigs.
thats slighly below ur 500 dollars so u have some money for pedals. and did i mention its a combo!

p.s i couldnt find a new one on the website
i would recommend neither and go for something like a: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Epiphone-Epiphone-Thunderbird-IV-Bass-100388504-i1150015.gc

iv got one of these it was soo good that i went up a stage and brought a tokai one (a few hundred more pounds).
there really nice to play, have a real bassy sound, rugged and look gorgeous.
however they are very big, im 6 ft 5 and play fine with it so someone smaller may struggle :P
i would recommend a tokai thunderbird. i've got one and its great for indie/alternative and has a very nice tone. its around 400 quid but im sure u could get it cheaper.

(not the epiphone thunderbird because its rubbish)
