    what do you suggest i get for a bass amp for my dorm room?
    just to jam and practice with.
    something small but doesn't sacrifice the deep bass sound
    also something that a college student can afford.

    Cafe Walter headphone amp, a pair of nice headphones (sennheiser 555s are great and about $150), and an iPod.

    Alesis BassFire 60. Loud enough for a small gig and low too. Built in tuner, amp and cab modeling, compressor, limiter, distortion, effects, CD inputs, etc ,etc. Typically under $200 shipped.

    SABDDI + cheapest peavey combo bass amp at your local pawn shop. You can lose the peavey later and still have a rather usefull piece of gear.

    If you get a Peavey, I wouldn't get a MicroBass (the Minx is good, though). My MicroBass was pretty good for guitar, but awful as a bass amp. Had a headphone jack though, so you could get good bass with some good headphones.
