    Pretty much depends on what's in your wallet.

    London, UK.
    Ashdown Electric Blue 180watt C-115.
    Good enough to gig small-mid size venues
    I did for a year with it including marquees playing covers

    If you're in the $4-500 range, or maybe even up to about $700, I agree. If you run a search you'll find the longish review I posted about a month ago. It's an excellent amp, and way louder than its size and power rating would suggest.
  7. 200 w Try looking at the Yorkville XM 200. Do a search they seem to be popular with TB'ers.

    Carvin PB200-15. Good value, good power, it's got a compressor. IMO the Roland's got better tone, but (also IMO) nobody beats Carvin in the overall value department.
  9. SWR Basic Black. 160 watt 1x15. I got mine for $350 (used).

    i second the yorkville suggestion. I have an older 100B which is 100 watts and i picked the thing up for 100 bucks. It cranks like a mother with a 15" speaker. Good quality, and cheap.
  11. Ampeg b100r is a good choice for a vintage tone. It is pretty loud for 100w. Much has been written about it on Talkbass.
