I asked this a while ago, but got kind of a jumbled response and just decided to get another bass and a cheap combo just to be able to hear the bass. But now I'm wondering what kinds of amps would be good for metal. I really don't want to spend more than I have to. And I really don't want just the brand name, I would prefer to know an actual model that would be good. I'm mainly looking at Ampeg and Hartke. I'm wondering about other companies I don't know much about, though, because I saw some really cheap Acoustic amps and some low-priced Markbass amps, and I'm wondering how those would sound. I play in a death metal band, our sound is like Cannibal Corpse right now but we're looking to expand out styles and be a little more like Between the Buried and Me. Also, the lead guitarist is (in usual lead guitarist fashion) obnoxiously loud and my sound is usually drowned out (I borrow a friend's David Eden head and cab for practice and gigs). But there's also a catch- I play in another band, and the music chosen is from all musical styles, like from Paramore to Gym Class Heroes to Carrie Underwood (god, I hate some of the songs so much it's unbelievable) so it would help if the amp wasn't just for metal. Feel free to offer up some names, and thanks those of you who are still reading this!
