I Would classify myself as an intemedite bass player and need a little more power. I am playing a Fender P-bass with a 15 W amp. When me and my band have practice I can barely hear myself. I am looking forward to playing the talent show and evetually gigs so I am taking a big step now so I am prepared. I was looking at the Peavey TNT 115 or the Crate BX100. Please tell me what you think or if you have other suggestions. Also I have about $450 to spend so im looking in that range.
