    Lookin to get a nice fat sound primarily for funk/soul/ etc.

    Don't need anything too powerful, but definitely want a wide range of tone.

    I hear Ampeg is good...any suggestions?

    It is your lucky era - this is a golden age of great, reasonably priced bass amps.
    It's hard to go wrong with:
    Ampeg
    Aguilar
    Gallien-Kreuger
    Genz-Benz
    Markbass
    Mesa

    And many others. Have fun with the hunt!

    That's a great list. If you can test out three or four from this list in person you'll be sure to find something you like.

    check out the TC BG250.

    There is a thread related to this relatively new amp. I got one in December and I'm very pleased. A lot of bang for the buck. There are also several Youtube vids that are very good. Street price is $400.

    Good luck.
