    What's a good quality bass amp I can use for playing in my all-around rock band (hard-rock lines to punk bass lines)???

    For punk, the Ampeg V4B is a classic. Run it full open for a really grinding sound.

    you deffinately can't go wrong with ampeg seeing as how they should change their name from ampeg to "rock bass amps". i own an svt classic and an 8x10 and it's an awesome set up but the more i hear ashdowns the more i fall in love with those. i'd check into one of those if i were you. i'm thinking about it.
