    Hi there
    I've finally got my bass back (Japanese Fender Jazz) after it's been with a friend abroad, and I need to get a cheap practice amp to tide me over until I can afford to get something a bit more meaty. Can anyone offer me their opinion on what's the best cheap (<$100) amp to get?

    Thanks in advance

    If it were me I'd go for a headphone amp.
    Buy a "practice" amp and you'll probably be dissapointed, plus It'll have zero (almost) value if you want to sell it on.
    As always, I could be wrong though ......
    If you really want a practice amp the little "Danelectro" ones are reasonable.
