i just got some money for my birthday, and i'm looking for a combo amp that isn't that expensive, and is loud enough to play small gigs. i was wondering if anyone knew anything about these 2, it's waht i've narrowed it down to. if you have any other suggestions, that's fine as long as they're in the same price range, and they're loud enough. thanks. also, i don't really want many effects with the amp, i just don't like them. #1 http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...9117840311/search/g=bass/detail/base_id/43312 #2 http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...9117840311/search/g=bass/detail/base_id/54522 thanks, and any help is greatly apreciated.
