    First, welcome to TB. :bassist:

    Secondly, Tritone is right - this is in the wrong forum. There is an Amps section here.

    Back to your post. That's a pretty general question. There are many types of amp brands out there. For each brand, some people will like it, and some won't. None of us could tell you what would be best for you. My advice is to go to a music store and try out everything, to find out what you like. Certain types of amps/cabs are better suited to certain music types, too. You need to assess what you want in regard to tone, volume, portability, etc...

    Look through the Amps section first, then we'll be glad to help. :)
     
  4. What kind of music do you play? What kind of bass do you have? How much are you willing to spend? Do you need enough power to play live? or just something to use to learn and occasionally jam. Let us know and we can give you a hand. Also, once again go look in the amp forums. I am sure a mod will move this there one right away. I see that you are pretty young, so I am sure an svt and 8x10 would not be necessary for what you are using it for, but let us know.

    This is Basses, not Amps.

    Moved to the appropriate forum.
