hey yall, im new here and i went and checked the sticky about stuff to see if my question could be answered but i couldnt find it. I know theres a post on there about what to have for gigging but me and a friend of mine dont really do or goto gigs. playing is just a hobby and a passion for us. My question is..what would be a good amp to get..for practice/plaiyng sessions? My friend plays drums and guitar, and he plays very strong on drums. Right now im playing through an old(circa mid 70s) silvertone bass cabinet i recieved from my grandpa. It looks like it has 2 15s and 2 10s maybe 2 12s..im not completely sure. My friends dad said because of how old it is it probably only puts out around 200 250 watts max. It works well but the problem is the amp head only has a volume,bass,and tone knob on it, so i was kind of limited on my sound up until i got a fender 5 string deluxe, and the 3 band EQ helped alot, but this is not the only bass i play with, and my others do not have an EQ. The other problem is because of its age, it buzzes, and the sound gets distorted when turned up. So, now im looking at buying a new amp, that is decent, and wont kill my bank, and my ignorance keeps me from knowing how big i should go since modern amps put out so much more power. It's only me and a drummer or me and a guitarist at any givin point right now, we may get a guitarist soon, but as of now its just the two of us.
