I got a budget of $200. Now im buying an amp, after done a lot lot of research i considering this 3 amp. Washburn BD30B , Peavey Microbass III and Laney HCM15B. My first choice is Washburn BD30B. I like this amp because it got active and passive input, it is 30Watt and it has a Contour knobs (which i dont really know what is it used for) Also becasue i really liek the looks of this amp. I heard a lot of reviews of Peavey Microbass BUT, i prefer Washburn than Microbass is because its only 20Watt it doesnt have the extra contour knobs that washburn offer, it doesnt have active or passive inputs (dont know if it really necessary, my bass is active pickup btw) and it looks ugly. As for Laney, i'm considering it because it is much smaller then the rest. It looks better than microbass. Hope anyone can help with my dilemma.
