I've been reading these forums for a while now, and finally decided to register. Just recently (2 days ago) I upgraded my bass from an Ibanez SR300DX to an Ernie Ball MusicMan Stingray 4. This was a huge jump for me, and maybe unecessary as I don't play gigs or anything (I've only been playing bass for about a year, it was my first musical instrument, and I just jam with my friends, a drummer and a guitarist) but I'm a very impulsive type of person and I read so many good things about the stingray, and it sounded and played so great that I had to buy one. Anyways, the point of this post (besides sharing my excitement with you all) is I'm wondering if anyone who has experience with a stingray could share information about a good, cheap (under 300) combo amp that sounds good with it. I still have my Ibanez SW35 amp, and I really feel the need to upgrade it, as I'm thinking it probably doesn't do the stingray any justice. The amp/cab I played the stingray with at the guitar center was over a 1000...I thought it was the stingray that sounded so great, but it probably was a combination of the stingray and the amp that made me love it so much. Thanks for any input!
