    I use the same amp your using now. If you like the Fender sound, upgrade to the Bassman, if not, go to your local music store and try out some different stuff.

    There's a zillion threads on this topic so you might want to do a search.
    Be sure to add "2008" to your search to pull up current threads.
    You can also checkout the following thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=442966

    What's your budget? What size venues do you play? What type of music?
    What size band are you in? What type of equipment are you competing with?
    What can your car carry as far as size? How many strings does your bass have?
    Both now and in the future.

    That's a good start.

    Budget? I say buy used, the market is great and you get REALLY good value.

    just study all you can about amps(i assume you don't know much about them because you said you need a cab, but not a half stack, and then you said you wanted a combo) go play a bunch at a music store and you will have a much better decision than if you listen to someone on here.

    Try some stuff out, and also consider used gear. Some of it is taken care of, and looks it. And some, of course, isn't. But that is a viable option, I think!

    Sometimes that's the benefit of some of us anal-retentive guys: when we sell equipment, you the second-hand buyer, gets gear that's in pretty good shape. We "pay it forward" so to speak.

    ;)

    Oh, where's that Phil Hartman "Anal-Retentive Chef" clip off SNL way back when...
