As mentioned on here the other day, my Warwick Profet nearly blew up in the weekend and I think I have managed to convinve my financial advisor (my darling wife) to let me buy a new bass amp. Anything up to $1k (NZ)- prefer around 500watts I'm either looking at buying a decent head to run with my Warwick 4x10 or buying a decent combo that can run an extention cabinet (that I can get at a later date) I don't need any fancy knobs / features etc.... I'm a simple man playing Rock covers and good volume is more important to me than fancy features!! I'm not too keen on Warwick gear anymore - seeing as my Profet 5.1 just about blew up in the weekend!! I am looking at: (all prices are in NZ $) Behringer ultrabass BX450 - thought behringer was rubbish, but have found some suprisingly good reviews online - $599 new Ampeg portaflex 500 - amp looks too small / lightweight, don't know if it will have the power I need - $799 new Peavey firebass 700 - 2nd hand - had Peavey gear before and really liked it $700 Ashdown mag600 head,1x ashdown 15"cab and 1x ashdown 2 x10" cab - $900 2nd hand ASHDOWN 330-TOURING 15" BASS AMP COMBO - brand new -$1095 what are your thoughts??
