Hi. This is newbass's brother. I play bass too. I am going to be in every bassist dream band when I go back to college next semester. It's a funk band. And the guys requested me to slap! How sweet is that!? Anyway, I don't own an amp. I was wonder, we have horns, drums, guitar, and me. How many watts do you think I need, and do you think I should go with a combo or a head+cab. I kind of like the idea of going with a head so I can upgrade when I need to, but then again it may be overkill. (Yeah, right, like you can buy to much stuff ) I also need to know what a good general number is for watts. I've been told bare minimum for playing with a drummer with no pa is around 150. I'm thinking maybe a 2x10 with a 15 or something to that effect. I'll only be playing four strings, so maybe I only need the tens? Also, keep in mind, I need to cover sounds between, say, Wooten, Jamerson, and of course that guy that played that fast pizzicato funk, I forget his name . And extra versatility is always a plus of course. I'm making this too long so I'll be quiet now.
