I am in the market for a new bass amp. My Fender BXR 60 just doesn't cut it anymore. My guitarist plays a 100W JCM900. I'd like to have enough power to be heard in our practice space (public storage) and in gigs at small bars and clubs. Outdoor gigs are a possibility also. The Carvin R1000 (1000W)with an 18" and 4-10" fits my price range, but I don't want to waste money on headroom I won't be using.
