    I was given a Fender BX300C bass amp. While I appreciate it, and the massive volume it produces, I am having difficulty with the tone. (Even with the volume set to 2, I'm blasting over our drummer who is an animal!) I do not know anything about heads so can anyone recommend a good one for someone on a tight budget? Or, any other recommendation that will help with the tone is appreciated.

    The BXs are woofy things - I used to have a 200. I just had to finally close my eyes and adjust the eq and tone till it sounded good. It was not the knob positions I expected (and I stopped expecting them). But it sounded pretty good.

    Bass cut, mid bump, and high end to taste was roughly where I ended up.
