  1. I am moving to complete new city and country and probably won't be taken my 80W practice combo with me (because of the size, wattage and the electric plug)!
    So I am looking for a new smaller practice combo in the pricerange till 150 euros and have a RMS of 30 Watt.

    I have found the several possible combos of well known "good" brands:

    Which one do you recomment? :confused:

  2. I cast my vote for the Peavey Microbass. I got one a couple years ago, it's light weight, and it sounds quite good even with the low notes my six-string fretted and five-string fretless basses put out. I've also got a 17-year old Peavey TKO75 combo that has never caused me trouble. The Peavey amps may not be sexy, but they're tremendously reliable.

    A practice amp that I think is overlooked is the Vox 25 (25 rather than 30, though). It is very light and has a clean tone, so you can tell what is you and what is the amp--important in practicing.

    It's not yet possible to shrink amps ;)
     
  6. My first practice amp...

    A Peavey Decade link 10 watts, 8" speaker, $99 new.

    :cool:
     
  7. Peavey Mircobass, good little practice amp and you can find them used, for around $50 bucks.

  9. I think it is going to be the Ashdown, because it has more power and a shapeshifter and 1x10"
