    I want to hurt you.

    I MEAN.

    What kind of an amp do you need? do you need a more powerful amp for playing with other people? Or can you get by with less because you are just playing by yourself? Crate and Carvin offer cheap (good) starter amps, and Peavey is what I would recomend.

    Do a search, Enter "First amp" or "beginner amp" or just "amp" into the search, and click on "In thread title only". You should find MORE than enough information on a good first amp in those countless threads.

    Yep.......go to the best music store you know of in your area, bring your bass, and try out as many different amps as their patience will allow you to audition.

    No one knows the sound you're after better than you.

    You'll probably walk away with a lot of questions, but you can ask those here.
     
  6. Sorry guys.... will do
