How many watts would you need for a gig-worthy bass amp? I have been looking at trying to find a used (yes, I'm a cheap/poor person) Gallien Krueger 400RB bass amp (280 watts), but I'm not sure if it'll cut through. The next option I had was the 700RB version, which is about 480 watts, and I think that'll be too much power. Now, I'm a guitarist of 4 years, so I don't know much about the bass world, and every time I try to research bass gear, I get drowned about by guitar vids. As for the last few days, I've been using a Squier Jazz bass (which my sister had sitting around for years) through a 5-watt Silverstone guitar amp. For those of you who don't want to read it: Is 280 watts enough to gig with (for a solid-state amp)? PS: I'm leaning towards GK products since I researched a bit and I love the sound of them. Also, I really love Guns N Roses, so their sound influenced what I would want to tonally achieve out of bass (even if I may not become the best bassist). PPS: About a cab for the head, I'm looking at Seismic Audio since I'm on a bit of a budget.
