Please advise an intermediate bass player
I'm looking into buying a new bass amp for myself since the one at my church is either really bad or ppl who know jack crap nothing about amps tampered with the settings and I don't know to reset to factory settings. They have a Fender Rumble Something Amp (it's really big and heavy) but it's getting old and breaking down slowly. My friend's Musicman started crackling. We thought it was the quarter inch cable but it turns out it's the amp. We also have a Line 6 Lowdown LD150 bass amp and some of the settings were made weird by inexperienced players. The "rock" mode was turned into "synth" and "clean" turned into overdrive".
I want my own amp with my own settings so no one can touch it and it won't affect my tone. I'm looking to spend $200-400 CAD for a decent amp.
BTW if you want to reset the LD150 the procedure from the manual:
Factory Reset of all Presets
You can reset all 36 of your LowDown programmable
channels to their factory-programmed states by holding
down the Channel A button as you turn on the power.
Warning: This will erase ALL custom sounds you might
have created. Ask yourself, “Do I really want to do
this?” If your answer is yes, then go for it!

I live in Canada and I rather have to buy one from a nearby guitar store or from CL but I;m not sure what's good and what's not recommended.
All I know is that those Rumble 15 and 30 amps are bedroom amps and won't carry as far as our stage. Even though our stage is small, I'd like something that gives out a big boom
G-K MB115 or MB112 combo, Ampeg BA115, Peavey Max 115, Traynor I believe have some nice combos just stay away from the signal processing stuff from anyone IME, IMHO, if you need effects add pedal(s). Or use what is available after the reset.
