Obviously with Christmas around the corner I was thinking about asking for a new amp. I've looked on various websites and I've narrowed my choice of brands down to Marshall, Peavey, and Fender. Fender being my last choice because my current amp (made by Fender) is pathetic. But with my bass being a Squier I figure fender must make the best amp for it's products. Soooooo, can somebody explain to me each brand's pros and cons. Or just give some comments on any amps. i've got roughly 250 dollars to blow, which isnt to much, so can someone please point me in the right direction?
