    Can't provide much help, as neither of those are in my top 3 choices...

    You might try www.musicgoround.com or ebay for a used Firebass. They typically sell for under $400 used.
     
  5. Well you said you sold your peavey......why?
    Although I have never played one I have never heard any good about any mashall bass amps

    Are you open to suggestions
    what cabinets are trying to push
    what power are you looking for

    I think if you liked the sound of you peavey buy another.....if you didnt(thats may be why you sold it)then buy the marshall or try a bunch of heads.

    Have you considered a Pre/Power amp setup generally you can get more power for less money and its way more flexible when upgrading
