Well, I'm in the market again for a new amp. I've sold off some of my old unused equipment, and I'm ready to buy. I play mainly bars to medium clubs. Anywhere from 100 - 500 people. 4 pc band playing covers, and a few originals. My main bass is a Fender Precision, and backups are a Squier VM Jazz, along with an Epi violin bass. My practice and small room amp is Ampeg BA 115 HP. My main rig is an an Ampeg CL 410 HLF. (which I refuse to give up) and a Peavey Mark 8. The Peavey belongs to the band, and after years of abuse, it's time to retire it. My budget is $750 maximum. I'm leaning towards a GK 700RBII. I've read a lot of good things about them here, and it seems as though it pairs up well with the Ampeg cab. I've also been looking at the Carvin amps. Lots of power for relatively small $$, but I've never owned one of these lightweight amps. So give me some suggestions. I'm open to just about anything. Although I would like tube, clearly it's not in the budget. I also only play out only 1 - 2 times a month, so I cannot justify spending big $$ on a rig.
