I am looking for a 1x15 combo amp. Maybe a workingmans?? Any suggestions in that price range? Thanks
Ampeg B100R Rocket Bass Combo Amplifier (Ampeg)
Sorry - not sure what your price range would include, but the Ashdown Electric Blue Combo series are worth a look. I have a 130 watt 15" version, but there are 150 watt versions, and the new line has 180 watt versions....
I used to have a Ashdown MAG 115 C250. Quite powerful and a included a nice "suboctaver"
Sold it because the lack of a tweeter horn made it somewhat limited. It had a nice mellow vintage sound. But i fancied something more versitile. So i bought the Fender Bassman 200 combo and are very happy! Brings out the tonal character of all my basses and don´t leave me "powerless"
Bring our own basses and try out as many as you can. You might discover that your taste actually have changed or that your favourite bass doesn´t sound very good on what seemed to be the perfect buy.
One important consideration for me is the abiltiy of the cab to accept an extension cabinet.
Would I be better off starting with a 4x10 combo and later adding a 1x15 extension? What 4x10 combos are equivilant to the Ampeg B100R?
Sorry, I live under a rock.
Ah, OK.....from the Ashdown Electric Blue point of view, only the 150 and 180 versions have an extension cab out.....my 130 doesn't!
Depending on budget, Ashdown do a 2 x 10 in the Electric Blue series - again, you could add a extension cab to the 150 or 180 versions!

Check out the Amp Buyer Guide that Kirbywrx posted at the top of the forum. It's very comprehensive.
That Ampeg Rocket is a bad-ass little combo. Whether you can add to it or not...
Rabid Granny, That's the lime kitty ROFLMAO...It may not be in your price range, but for the price(usually 700-750) The Yorkville BM400, it's 15+tweeter and that's probably one of the tightest 15 sounds I've heard.The contour alone is enough to deepen the sound of a shallow sounding bass, and the graphic EQ is tone shaping to the max...I'm gonna get a BM400H(Head) to go along with my Avatar410
If you don't mind lugging a tank around...
A peavey TNT would be quite sexy for you...
But it is a tank. This thing would be a formidable opponent for an entire brigade of Abram's tanks.
Sounds good too.
peavey databass. 450W 1x15 combo (w/ black widow speaker). they are loud and sound great (flat response when flat and has a good eq section). i use one and i never go past 5 or so and i play against cranked-drop-tuned guitars in a hardcore band. i traded my old ernie ball 2x12 cab for mine, i think they typically go for $200-350. they sold for over a grand new. great deal and they only weigh about 75lbs (my ernie ball weighed about 110lbs!). all in one and fits in a hatchback car
I'll second the Peavey Databass. Got mine for $225.
