    The combo I am currently liking right now is the Hughes&Kettner 300w Bassforce XXL
    I was hoping some people would have reviews about this amp. Its 300 watts, should bve loud enough for many gigs. But i hear there on the tone-ee side. I love tone, but too much meens loss of low end. Will this amp do as well as it does in tone as bottom end?
    The other amp i have considered is the Ampeg 200 with effects. I am pleased with this amp, put one problem. Is 220 watts loud enough for good sized gigs?
    The final amp i have chosen is the Fender Bassman 200. Once again, the same question, is 200 watts loud enough. It says on the back of the fender 450 watts, but its only into one speaker. watts the deal here? please give me all the info on these amps possible, and your personal buying oppinion.:confused:

    The pricing is as followed:
    Huges&kettner= $499.99 limited internet special
    Ampeg= $699.99
    Fender= $649.99
    as of now, i have $97.00. put 2 and 2 together.
