    I'm looking to buy a new head for my bass but I don't know which one is a good amp. Does someone know good heads? between 300 and 800 euros?
  2. in the price range you specified you have probably 50-60 choices at least. Look at Ampeg, GenzBenz, GK, & Eden to start. Decide what bassists tone you like also to narrow down your choices. And search here as there are probably 100,000 threads on this topic.

    Everybody, including me, is going to ask you to define "good."





    Serviceability, short and long term

    Warranty length


    Parts availability over the long haul

    And about 2 dozen other attributes, lol........

    Play whatever's available to you, buy the one that sounds best and is within your budget. That one will be "best". The cab you choose is even more important, unless you're shopping combo amps.

    I play hardcore and metalcore with my bass so I look for a good head and i'm thinking of an peavy cap
  8. +1 to Rick

    What is available locally to you? Anything on the used market? That would extend your budget a bit. Peavey gear gets a bad rap some times, but IMHO they have made some gems.
