  1. If I had to decide between those 2, I would take the VOX, but if you are open for suggestions there are others in the price range that I think may be better.............http://www.samsontech.com/hartke/combos.html
    Check out the B-60....

    Welcome to TalkBass, Cpt. You might consider the Peavey Microbass or one of the other smaller Peavey's like the Basic 112.

    For what it's worth, the Peavey Microbass won Bass Player awards for Best Built and Best Tone for 8" practice amps under $200. If you can swing something bigger than an 8", go for it. They're at www.peavey.com

    (No, I don't own a Peavey and never have, but I know some happy owners).

    I had a 80s solid state washburn combo amp and it was very cool. I think it was 30 watts. I got any sound I wanted out of that amp.
     
  4. Thanks for the help guys!
     
  5. the SWR LA series combos will be shipping soon. i bet those will be great bang for the beginner buck if you can hold on a bit.
