    So I've been surfing the net trying to figure out which amp would be the best out of these to start with. I don't really want to spend more than $150 on my first amp so I'm pretty sure that eliminates the GK but I'll save a little more if it's really necessary. However I really like the classic look if the Fender rumble V3 with the classic silver grill. But then Line6 is known for making a great guitar amp but I'm not so sure about bass. People are also raving about the Ampeg which the fender and Ampeg r both in my price range so I'm asking u kind people for some words of wisdom. What do u all think?
     
  2. Good post and excellent question. I happen to like Fender Rumbles a lot. Even though I haven't played through any of the new Rumbles yet, I am confident that they are the best sounding yet.

    If there is any way you could go $180, I'd go with the new Rumble 40 combo. Reasons being that it is Class D power section and shares the very same front end (pre-amp) as it's bigger brothers: 100; 200, and 500. Tonally that is very important.

    I love my little Ampeg but the new Fender Rumble 40 class D may just kick the Ampeg BA110's butt!
