    So previously I used an Ibanez Amp. I can't remember what it's called, but here's an image.


    Anyways, I accidently blew the amp so whenever I play any notes on the E string, the sound starts to get distorted and sounds terrible. I probably want to get it fixed, but also would like to know what's a good amp for performing at venues at a good price. The Venue is a small local venue, nothing big. What's the best quality and durability. I'm looking at 500$ at the most. My friend told me Ampeg or Orange, but I'm still searching. Something that will pump a lot of sound while not dying out and staying reliable. Probably only going to get a combo, b/c lack of money.

    Help is greatly appreciated!

    I use a Shuttle 9 with variety of cabs depending on the situation. Most often it's an Ampeg 410HLN. The shuttle's DI is great, as long as you have adequate PA support, you only need enough cabinet to hear yourself.
