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.
Bass is the most underrated instrument in the whole world. You won't get the ladies as a bassist, but in the music world, you're just as important
