I've played bass for a few years now and most of it either through a starter pack 10 inch 15w practice amp. When I played gigs and such in college I was able to borrow an old 50w combo amp that weighed a ton and didn't sound all that great. It worked for my small college club group's events since they had the ability to run my output to speakers. Now that I've graduated I'm back to what I own, which isn't much. I'm looking to start a band with some locals and I'm looking for an amp that is around 100w (band will have drums, guitar, and probably an electric violin) that can be supplemented further with cabs. To be honest I have an idea but I don't know if it's a good one. My budget at the moment is around $300 to start and more later when I start working in 6 months. I'm thinking of getting a GK mb110ii when it becomes available and expanding upon it with cabs in the future. What do you all think? Am I completely off base? Should I be looking elsewhere? The reason I picked GK is because it's light and I've heard great things about their sound. Thank you for any help you can offer.
