1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    :help: Okay so some of you may have seen my other posts on here that I'm new to the bass (I haven't bought one yet or started playing) but with that said I also know that'm I'm going to need an amp. I don't really know which would be a good one to go with. I do like the GK Amps but I think they r a little out of my price range. I'm trying to get an amp that's no more than $100-$150 but if I could find a really good one fore less then I'm all for it also. Please Keep in mind I'm in an apartment so I don't need to blow the doors off this place but I don't want to sacrifice great sound either. any help would be great. Thanks!

    PS I'm not above using a used amp either but new is always good.

    At this budget I would seriously reccomend used. Even from a shop, you'll get more for your money.

    I have a marshall bass state b65 and thats great. The good thing is that it doesnt sound too bad with the volume down a bit either as I get away with home practice with it (while my parents are watching tv). Its also loud enough for gigging and band situations despite what a lot of people say about needing at least 200W.

    +1 and get something with a headphone jack and maybe a aux in there are so many decent used budget amps out there you should have no problem finding one.
