    Hello everybody. I'm planning to buy a new bass amp on very short notice. However, I have difficulty in making up my mind. Can anybody tell me if their are good guides, tips and tricks (on the web) that can help me to decide which amp is best in my situation? To make it more specific: I'm looking for an amp which can be used for gigs (150W ?), but which doesn't lead to back injuries. Also important: I'm not that rich...:confused:

    I say, you need at least 300W

    Well, how much are you willing to spend?

    There are a ton of options out there, and for a gigging amp, I would probably want at least 150W, but more likely, I would be looking at 300W. More than that is not required if you have PA support. On the other hand, having more can be useful in case you run into a situation where you have no PA.
