Just started gigging last summer. Problem is that I don't have a bass amp and have been spending $45 hard earned gig dollars on rentals. I finally have the money, and I don't want to be a moran buying some stupid ass amp. I'm lookin' at $1000-$1500. Our band plays a tripped out mix of reggae/rock/soul. I'm a converted guitar player, so I really don't know a lot about bass sounds. I've heard some good things about Eden products. I heard from other players that Ampeg was good, but i rented one and it sounds pretty ****ty to me. Advice anyone?
