    Maybe Ashdown abm300, but it's little more than 500$, but according to your profile I can't see if you need just head or cab, too, or combo. If you need new combo for 500$ maybe it's time to think about some extra work.:p :p
     
  5. Well it doesn't have to be that big but i am searching for a combo but i don't go higher than $750

    You should check some trace elliot, peavey or warwick combos. :bassist:

    i hate combos
    my advice, dont get a combo
    get a seperate head and cabinet(s)
    why?
    because you can always upgrade down the road and still use some of your equipment
    most heads will only drive down to 4 ohms so if you get a head and a 4 ohm cabinet you're done unless you replace one or the other
    if you get a head and an 8 ohm cabinet you can always add a second 8 ohm cabinet later
    dont get a combo unless you really have to
    and don't be afraid to get used gear - most of mine is (how else do you think i could afford the gear i listed in my profile? lol)
