    Hi guys i want an amp, around 30w and i have 150+/- euros.

    My favorite bassist is steve harris so i want to have his sound! I know that the amp wont give me the sound(my right hand will;)) but i want an ideal amp for this style.
    I have seen that orange is a good amp.what do you think?
    With the amp i will only practise alone with my band!

    BASS: squier vintage modified precision :bassist:

    Want lots of sounds in one amp, go for a Roland.

    For 150 Euro you might get an old Trace Elliot head.

    Don't know what they go for in Europe, but the Ampeg BA110 might be something you'd want to take a look at.

    I do have one, yes. For a little 35w practice amp, it would do well at what you're looking for IMHO.

    Just checked the Peavey Max 110. 100W into 8, some cool Peavey gimmicks transtube and psychoacoutic bass extension, 35 lb. Also in the price range and might be worth a look.

    I've owned a B100R and a BA-112 (and a B-15 way back when). Terrific combos. I recently bought my son a BA-110 and just got a chance to check it out this weekend. REALLY nice.


    I bought my younger son a Peavey Max. Also very nice for the price but I would take the BA-110 over the Max in a heartbeat.
