Ive been looking for a new since I bought my crappy crate combo when i first was jamming and playying shows. i have a very small buget under 600, and cabs are probably gunna be bought used, I need an amp under 300 dollars with around 300 watts at 4 ohms. Ive been checking out GK backline 600( or used RB series). ashdown MAG 300, ampeg B series used. Im looking for a good indie, punk rock tone. If you listen to punk and you know what a jazz bass or p bass sounds like( something with growl, and brings out the brightness of the strings), thats the kind of tone i want. SWR ampeg, GK. lots of low end with a nice bright tone. Tell me what you think KUH!
