    For most situations, 300 watts is where things tend to start.

    For light jazz gigs, acoustic jams, etc. you can get away with less. But in a Rock, Funk, R&B, Pop, etc. you're going to want to start with 300 watts.

    This is if you are going solid state. With tubes, you can get away with less. 100 watts all-tube should work fine for those "300 watt solid-state" situations.

    If you do a search you'll find out about Behringer's ethics.

    What kind of tone are you looking for and how much do you have to spend?

    Start doing a search and look used. Craig's List ( is a nice place to find some local gear. You can find anything on eBay with a bit of patience. There are classifieds here on Talkbass. There are other places to find used gear as well, keep your eyes open.
