    Hi guys,
    I was thinking about getting a bassman 100 or 200 amp, but I am hearing mixed reviews about them.. So I was wondering if maybe some of you guys could pick out a amp for me, with some of the specs I need. 100 - 150 * or 200 if its not too much more *. Has a horn, under 700 dollars, 65-70 lbs or less, and has good finger playing tone, and pretty good slap tone. Also I would really, really much prefer a combo amp.. Any help would be greatly apprecieted. * I will prolly hit up guitar center in like 2-3 weeks, so maybe a used one is a good option? *

    Whats the difference between a Horn and a Tweeter?

    :edit: Oh ****, I forgot to say I need something that supports low B really well.

    You should try out the Yorkville XM200 or XM200T. It sounds great, and I think it covers all the things you were after. I'm not sure if it has a horn though... I can't remember.

    I think I am going to order the Ashdown, even if I can't play it before hand. I have only seen great reviews of it, and after searching about 2 hours I found a website that actually has it in stock. Besides, if I don't like it I'll just take the 60 dollar restocking fee, and think of it can be shipping because I get free shipping.

    Yeah it's kinda hard finding a place to try one. Guitarcenter didnt have it, sam ash, musicians outlet * little store near me *.. So I just shot in the dark because I am yet to find a review thats less than great.. So if I don't like it I'll just put the 60 bucks in for restocking, the gas to drive to guitarcenter/sam ash would cost the same.
