I've got a Peavey Combo 300 amp in my garage which I'm currently playing both guitar and bass through very happily (despite a couple quirks), but the thing is a monster in size, weight and volume, so I don't move it. It's just there for jamming with friends and band practice. I'm looking for a small practice bass amp that I can have in my living room next to my Fender Mustang I guitar amp. I don't need lots of volume, but I'd like good tone. In particular, I like control over the low mids. I'm trying to decide on whether or not I should invest in a Carvin MB10, or just get something smaller and cheaper. If I have to pay $200 for a cheap crappy amp and can get something like the Carvin for $100 more, then I'll probably spend the $s for the Carvin (or other), but I thought I'd check to see if there are any other less expensive options you guys would suggest. I've actually been intrigued by the Fender Bronco modeling amp, but haven't played one. One additional comment is that I've played through a bunch of bass amp offerings from Acoustic and I think they sound terrible - boxy and they are obviously cheaply made. This is the type of thing I'd like to avoid. Let me know what you think.
