    The title says it all. Im a student , and what goes hand and hand with being a student , is being broke. this is honestly all i can scrape together, im really desperate for an amp, i mean im using my brothers old crate guitar amp lol.

    I was think the swr la12 , it looked really nice for the price, or gk backline? but ive never really played gk.. I also just noticed the roland cube 30, with all the modeling and effects , do you think that would be a decent deal?

    The sound i want , if it would help, its kinda a geedy lee, or chris squire kinda sound , really agressive you know? but i wanna have a little bit of versitility so i could mellow it out a bit as well

    any suggestions would be much appreciated thanks in advance

    Someone was selling an SWR Workingmans 112 combo last month here in the Classifieds. He wanted $225, plus shipping. It is much nicer than the LA series from SWR.

    Ampeg also makes a nice little 112 combo that would fit that price range if you can find a used one. It is called the BA-112.

    There is a guy in the Seattle craigslist selling a Kustom bass combo with a 12" in it. He wants $75 for it. I could pick it up and ship it for you.

    what about the crate bt50, ive read nothing but good things aobut it , on harmony central ,and on this site as well, in the rewiews section. It seems good for the price ,and the distorition is a nice little add on , and it right in my price zone , what do you guys think?
