What would be the best practice/gig amp I could get for 300 or under?
I'd consider the Roland KC-series keyboard amps. Zzounds has the KC100 (60W) at $279, the KC300 (100W) at $369 and KC500 (150W) at $479. I use the KC500 almost exclusively. It gives a nice solid sound, with good bass and solid midrange and highs, plus it has a line out so that I can run direct into the sound board from it (the KC100 does not have this).

Check the used market and get as much power as you can for your $300.
The Carvin PB100-10, a 100W @ 8ohm combo with a 10" speaker, is $279+$25 shipping. It's well-made and clean-sounding. As a practice amp, I recommend it highly.
Both are good ideas above, a.) either check out used gear at your local music shop or b.) check out CARVIN stuff if you just have to have "new" gear.( who doesn't!)
Holdin' down the low end for our Lord, in Surf city U.S.A. !!!
Peavey's Minx 110 is a very good sounding 35W combo that can be had for less than $200.
You can't hold no groove if you ain't got no pocket!
I concur with Big Wheel.
I have a Peavey T-Max and a TNT 150 and I still plan to get the Minx 110.
For a 35W amp, the Peavey Minx 110 rocks. Very portable. Outstanding practice amp.
Go to Ebay and search under Peavey bass. You can get huge power for little cash. Or, save a bit and get Ampeg........
This thread is over 4 years old. I am sure that the original poster has found an amp by now, if he even still plays the bass.
LMAO, why are you bringing up a 4 year old thread?
I think with inflation, you need to adjust the title to read "$317.11 or Under"
Jeff! You kill me, man!!!

Thanks, Rick. Nice to know that I still have it, occasionally.
Old thread replies may no longer asssit the starter but a newby may benefit. I would think if it's no longer pertinent, it would not be on the site........Maybe I'm a realist? The further replies were obviously from readers of four year old threads....
Your point is well taken.
HOWEVER........as a courtesy to those who care enough to offer their advice, it seems to me the responsible thing to do is for the original thread starter to let respondents know the decision they have made and bring the thread to a conclusion, n'est-ce que pas???
