    I'm a semi-beginner, and I don't any drummers, so it's probably fine if it's less than 100 watts. I'm into mostly funk, indie rock, soul, classic rock. My bass is an Ibanez SR500 and I think I'd like an amp that will warm up it's tone a little.

    I'm only looking for recommendations on new amps, since I need one fast and can't wait for a specific used model to hit the market.

    Thanks!

    Go out and play what you can find. Buy what you like best.

    Best advice I ever saw on TB was set all the amps tone controls flat (straight io at 12 o'clock) and buy the one that sounds right to you. For me it is GK, but I also have friends that don't like GK. Buy the one YOU like.

    Yup.

    For me, it was the Acoustic B20 and GK MB112, and I ended up with the GK. Glad I waited until I found an amp I loved - when you do, you'll play that much more.
