    My theory teacher has been inspired by me to pickup bass again. He went out to buy a bass (mim jazz, dont worry I scolded him) and now he is going to buy an amp. He is looking for a nice little combo that sounds decent. I have been out of the combo shopping loop for a while, so I need some help. He only wants to spend 200$ he was looking at the fender bassman 25. I heard both good and bad about them. I am going to take him shopping some time and teach him a lesson on tone.
  2. Fender bassman 25s sound great. Brand new, they're almost $300 though, unless you get an insane deal, or find one used. I think there are many more people selling rigs than small practice amps.

    Good luck.

    The Fender bassman is worth every penny though. :)

    Also, it sounds great with a MIM Jazz. What's that scolding for? :confused:

    Have fun! :)

    IMO he could have gotten a better bass for less money. MIM jazz basses are ok, but out of the box they need some refinement to be great. again IMO they dont make them like they used to
