    I play bass in a folk band and I need to get an amp. Any suggestions? We play mostly smaller shows for now, but are recording in June and hope to be playing bigger shows soon. I play a '78 Rickenbacker and I'm looking for a nice even sound, not too sharp but not too low either (if that makes sense. I don't know much about technical aspects yet!). I'm looking for something about $2,000 and under for now.

    Thanks a whole bunch!

    that only leaves you with a million options ;)

    go play as many amps as you can, and buy the one that you like the most. picking out gear for someone is like picking out a spouse for someone, except people spend a lot more time and effort researching gear than they do a spouse.
