    I was looking at getting one of these and wondered which would you choose? Power isn't a big issue because I line out into a PA system for volume. It wil also double as a practice amp. Thanks

  2. Neither of those amps are suited to anything more than solo practicing in a bedroom. You'd be better off investing in a good DI box or bass POD.

    I like the bassman sound. In most band situations, you won't be able to use the 25 as a monitor.

    Perhaps the bassman 60 or 100 would be suited to monitor for you live and practice at home.

    I believe they have 12" and 15" speakers respectively and should be fairly loud. I didn't like the Peavey basic model combo. It sounded very bland and the volume was poor.
