i need a good amp that i can use for my schools jazz band because im sick of their crap amp (i think its really a keyboard amp not a bass amp). the jazz band has around 20-35 people and i need the bass the be heard but not overpower and it should be able to get loud enough for open solos. i also want to use it in my band which doesnt really have a style but i guess its kinda like punk/primus/rhcp. the guitarist has about a 80w amp and has been thinking about another one. tops for spending is probably around $750. since im in a small town the only bass amps are peavys here and i dont like the ones here (ones a tko i think and i dont the other ones name) i will be in a town with a guitar center soon so i might be able to try some others out. amps ive thought of are gk 400rb/210 and a carvin pb200.
