  1. I'm getting a Essex SJB-62 really soon as my second bass, My begginers one I have outgrown..I've also outgrown my amp...or I need a new one....I'm playing on a crate guitar amp with a music speaker my dad put in..So I think I'm due for one. I don't need one to annoy the neighbors or anything...Just good enough for my living room and maybe a SMALL gig...How many watts do I need? My budget is under $200 I found this Rogue amp that looks nice...I know most don't like Rogue basses but what about the amps? It fits nicely in my price can see it here

    Thanks alot.
  2. Don't get the Rogue. Just trust me on that. I'm not sure what combos are under $200, though. Just don't get that Rogue.

    Dont get the Rogue... save your money until you can get something bigger.

    Check the for sale items here on Talkbass. I am selling a Peavey Basic 112 that fits your description perfectly. I think we could probably work out something in your price range.
  5. Ok The Rogue is out of question....The most pressing question I have is what wattage do you think I need for what I stated I plan to be doing with it? The CRAPO music store around here has like...10 watt...25 watt and 35 watt....Everything else has to be special ordered....and since I have no clue what I need I just can't go and order something and be stuck with it.
  6. For practicing and small gigs, 100 watts would do.

    I agree with snaggletooth, my recommendation would be to save $300 bucks and get a Carvin PB100-10 or PB100-15
