    I'm in an electronic band and I want to incorporate a bass guitar for our live performances. I'd like to use a bass amp modeler instead of a full amp head/cab setup for these gigs.

    Can anyone recommend a good bass amp modeler for about $100 or less. I'm presently looking at a DigiTech BP80 Pedal, but I have no problem with using rackmounted effects either (doesn't have to be a pedal). Thanks!

    Thats a low price for that kind of thing.. your best bet could be a behringer bass v-amp or even a Korg Ampworks Bass.. Ultimately the Line 6 Bass Pod is probably the best modeler out there.

    Well, if you want to do it on the cheap, you might want to try a Behringer BDI21. It's only about $30 USD. I use mine as a preamp straight into a mixer in a number of places I jam at, rather than lugging an amp around. Just a thought... ;)

    Good luck and have fun!
