    Can you guys recommend a good practice amp that costs US $200 or less? Its hard to find a lot of good bass amps here in Singapore and the stores i've visited have limited selection.
     
  2. If you want something to play at home a Peavey Microbass works well at 15W.

    i have an ibanez soundwave 65 that i'd sell for 125 bucks. GREAT for practice as well as jamming with a band/friends. PM me if interested.

    i am from singapore too. if your budget is $200 sing. i think you would have top it up by like 50 bucks. My best bet would be the Ashdown Perfect Ten (S$230) or the Kustom KBA30 (S$200+). They are both good for practice and have a nice tone.

    I found a new Ampeg BA100 for $200 that is pretty cool for practice.
