    Hey, ive played guitar for 5 years and been in a few bands but lately ive joined a rock/heavy/screamo band playing bass.
    Im borrowing my mates crappy aria bass and probably going to get a fender pbass mex when i can afford it but i need an amp more than anything at the moment.
    I use a £1000 ashdown at the moment but im not allowed to borrow it much longer so i need a good, solid 300w stack for gigs. i play with 2 guitarists, they use a marshall mode four (350w) and a line 6 vetta (not sure on wattage).
    when i buy this amp it has to last for a fair while as i havent got alot of cash to throw around. i basically want an allround good amp that can handle heavy rock etc.
    i can spend about £350 or maybe a tad more but not alot.

    Thanks alot and i hope your able to help a converted bass player :)

    Well, if you are using one of those £ symbols, then you're in Ashdown territory. You might as well see what you can get in a 4x10 or 1x15 rig from them. Second-hand is definitely worth considering.
