    I've got about £1000 to buy a new amp , sick of the sight and boomy middly sound of my gk MBsIII combo. In the near future I'd like to get a mic too so using a pickup and mic simultaneously would be amazing. Does such a beast exist for that kind of money?

    Powered PA cabinet. They all have little mixers on the back with at least a few inputs.
    Accurately reproduce what you send them.
    JBL, Peavey, QSC, ... they are the new bass amps that double duty as PA

    +1 I have a QSC K8 that I pair with the Headway EDB-2 Pre Amp. They are compact, light weight, and have plenty of headroom. Since I have larger speakers and heads for bigger venues, its ideal for my needs. If I were going to use it for all my gigs, I'd go with a larger driver, like the QSC K10 or Mackie DLM 12. There are three newer pre amps, the Flex from Acoustic Image, the Acoustic Box Live, and the Headway EDB-2. The CMC 121 doesn't have independent Channels for a microphone and pickup to be combined, you really need two Channel Volumes to balance a mic and pickup because microphones tend to feed back sooner than pickups.

    Here's a picture of the Acoustic Box, among it's features are an internal power supply. That's dual voltage so it can be used in the U.S. and Europe.
