    Hartke 3500 and SWR Bass 350. Though make sure you use 4 ohm cabs with the SWR.

  11. :bassist: I recently bought my '75 Traynor Mark III head for $350.00 CAN.

    Traynor: Least expensive, most durable, easiest to modify and they just sound like a Bass amp should.

    Pete Traynor gets my vote for building the bass amp that gives you the most bang for your buck ! :bassist:

    New, Ashdown MAG300 or Hartke HA3500. Rather different amps, try them both if you can.

    I picked up a Peavey Mark VIII for $235 with a 2 year warranty - it sounds good, and puts out 600watts @ 2 ohms, 450 @ 4 ohms... Before that I played a Mark III for awhile, and only paid $100 for that, and also had a Mark VI for awhile - I wouldn't overlook used Peavey heads...

    Oh yeah! I got one for $180 shipped. Although used only as a backup right now, it is an awesome head for the money. Reputation for indestructability is deserved.
