hey, i'm new here and just wanted to ask a quick question... i only have a tiny 15watt hartke amp and NEED to get upgraded. at first i was thinking about a combo in the 100+ range, but now... i want a rig! or atleast a start, so i was thinking about a decent 4x10 and a head. my little amp simply doesn't do my new bass justice. it's an ESP b-2005 (active EMG's, mohagony, etc). i am incredibly broke and do not make money fast at all. so i was wondering if you guys had any suggestions... so far i'm thinking about either an Ashdown MAG 300r or a 400watt head from yorkville. i'm looking for volume first and foremost followed by sound (obviously). i have a chunkier, gritty sound. i play metal and my bandmates let me be heard (really) so i want to wow them. My little 15 watt amp is belching and farting at loud volumes and thus i need something better. thxs in advance.
