    What is the best bass amp for the price range of $400 dollars?
  2. Well lets see, for 400 you could get like a SWR Workingman 12 or 15 used somewhere, they are awesome amps.

    There is no best. There are many GOOD amps but what is best for one player is not best for everyone.

    A lot depends on the style of music you want to play, what sort of tone you like and what applications you have for the amp (gigs, practice, recording, etc.).

    The best bargain at any price point is buying used. For $400 I can get much more amp used than I can new.

    depends on what your looking for, but the L.A. series from swr is reasonable, I think the 15" combo is about 400 new, but you can't add an external later.
