    I've been playing bass for about a year on my starter bass and amp and I'm about to purchase a new bass right now and also a new amp. I was wondering whats the best combo amp choice for a slap/funk player for under $500. Versatility would also be good as I'll also occasionally be playing jazz at my school.

    Thanks for the help.

    If you can hold out, I'd suggest trying to track down a GK 2x10 combo on the used market.....

    I sold a used but great sounding GK 400RBIV 2x10 combo to a guy for 300$cash (He was an aquaintance)...I admit that was a really good deal, but many people on this board can tell ya, there are good deals to be found if you can wait and look around...

    (P.S. I submit this idea because my experience has been that GK makes a superior amp compared to Hartke,....and yes I have owned both)
