    I just got tossed into a forming band, I'll be playing bass.

    I've got a Bass Pod I'll be using as my preamp for the time being, and I'm going to order a 2x12 Dr. Bass cabinet and add a Dr. Bass 1x15 under it down the road.

    I'm looking for something around 1200 watts that sounds good and won't break the bank. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  2. Carvin DCM1000, my favourite goto power amp. Cost is a little over $300.


    P.S. Good luck with the bass.

    Carvins good.

    if you can find an EV 7300, those are good too. 150 -200 bucks used. 800 Watts bridged mono. (But they feel like 2kilowatts.)

    +1 to Carvin DCM.... and please do yourself a favor and read some of the recent threads about Dr. Bass. Short version: choose Avatar or LDS instead.
