Hey everyone, I'm kinda contemplating picking up a good combo amp for those smaller gigs that I really don't need the "big rig" for. Something that's more travel friendly (weight). I'll need something with decent wattage (would 200-300 watts be enough?) with an XLR out so I can go thru the PA as well. I play hard rock covers. I do use a 5 string so I'll need something that can handle the low B. I also use my Spector Euro basses which tend to have a bit of a hot output (Tonepump preamp). So, something that doesn't distort too easily. I don't boost my Spectors as it is now with my big rig due to clipping. Just a slight boost of the bass and treble and I'm good. So, with all that said, my budget is going to be anywhere from like $400 - $650. Obviously, the more bang for the buck, the better. Reliability and durability are concerns as well because of the fact that this will be a "gigging amp" as well as an at home practice amp. The ones that intrigued me so far are: -Ampeg BA115HP -Yorkville XM200C -Fender Bassman 250 (1x15) Anyone out there have any comments and/or suggestions on something that might be a good fit for what I'm looking for? Any experience with these amps? Any help and advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!
