So I am going into my freshman year, which means that I will be in a jazz band (it's all taught by a teacher who has taught us since 6th grade). I play electric bass,not upright. But on my own time I play rock and eventually want to play with a friend of mine (guitarist). I have never gotten into the world of amps in my 3.5 years of playing. I currently just use an Acoustic B100, which I like. I am thinking about what amp could suit my needs for a decent price. I am looking for something at or above 200W and not above, say 500W. As a price range, I would say at or under $500.
