I need some serious help. I have amazing basses, that I have bought myself, but have been playing through a Behringer Ultrabass 45w:scowl: for the last two years of my musical life. My dad enrolled me in a music program, where I am the only bassist, and the instructors said they may call me for their own gigs, because they say Im good for my age. NOw, my question is, and I know there are many of these threads, but I need a new amp and dont know where to begin. I have 200 bucks, and my dad my lay down 200-250 more. I need something loud enough to get through the mix, and be heard at outdoor/small gigs. I was thinking of the Acoustic products, I have heard a lot about them. Anyone recommend me something better, in the same price range?
