Help! Which amp for a newbie P-bass player?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by tonepolice, Oct 22, 2009.

  1. Hello!

    I'm new to the forum. I'm primarily a guitar player based in Kathmandu, Nepal. I recently got me a really really nice used MIJ Fender JV series P-bass from 1983.

    I am now looking for a nice bass amp to compliment it. I am a complete novice when it comes to bass amps. I need one primarily;

    1. to play out in clubs (200-300 people).
    2. for band rehearsals and
    3. noodling by myself at home.

    My budget is around 500 US$ (plus/minus a hundred) and I am open to either Tube or SS or Hybrid as long as it sounds great.

    I mostly play Chicago Blues, Old school Rock n Roll, Classic rock, southern rock, 70's hard rock and sometimes early 80's heavy metal.

    Is there an amp within my price range that sounds decent enough to cover these styles and are known for sounding particularly good with Precision basses? Thankyou!
