    I wanted to share an idea with all of you... just in case someone is looking for this answer... How to get a huge classic sound under $500:

    Squier Classic Vibe Bass


    Roland db-500 Amp

    The squier classic vibe series are great quality for the price, and very classy! and i coundt be happier with the db-500: 160 watts of raw power, 15 inch speaker impersonation, great eq and compression and svt-esque tubey overdrive. Can be found used for aprox 200-250 $

    I have no relationship with thoose products, just thought that someone may be needing to achieve this sound for a short budget... GREAT COMBO!

    How about amps or basses. This forum is for live sound reinforcement and PA systems according to the title.

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    Have you played this set up with a drummer and guitar yet? If so do feel it sat in the mix OK?

    i've use it with the squier classic vibe Jazz bass and i was amaze at my own tone... the parametric mid eq on the amp helped a lot.

    That's when it hit me... what a cheap way to get a great sound!
