    From the looks of it, I think my old Behringer BX1200 is dieing and and I'm using my spare Peavey MicroBass III ATM. The Peavey is great and all but I'd like something with a bit more EQs to it like my Behringer had. I'd also like something that can have two or more gain settings.

    I don't have a definite budget right now but I'm probably going to be strapped for cash so probably no more than $300. :D

    At that price, I think you would do well to take a look at the Ampeg BA112.

    You may want check out Guitar Center's pricing on this during their 4th of July sale. It may not be one of the reduced items, however, if it is, you may get a good deal.

    Best wishes in finding a good amp.

    I'll be sure to look into it :smug:

    Any other recommendations as well?
  4. if your just looking for a nice personal practice amp, something you wont have to get overly loud with, then you should try out one of the new acoustic B-20 it sounds really great and you can pick one up for like $120. i love mine, it is one of the nicest sounding practice amps ive heard. in fact it has now taken the place of my roland cube 100 as my home practice amp.

    I use an Ashdown Perfect 10 with my Sansamp BDDI for home practicing. Sounds good, but I wouldn't use it for anything more than that though.

    Big +1 on the Ampeg BA112. Only thing is, it's a single channel, but actually sounds like a bass amp. No frills, straight up, great tone, and easy to move about. My idea of the perfect practice amp.
