  1. Why are bass amps so expensive? I mean 200 bux for a 25 watt bas amp? whats the deal my lamp just burt out and it got me thinking it siad 100 watts and theyre only 2 dollars for 4 Why are the bass amps so much money like i could under stand 100 bux for 50 watts but 200 for 25?
    any input besides that light bulbs are mass produced would be tollereated

    Well, there is a tiny bit more technology and materials cost involved in manufacturing a bass amp than there is in a light bulb.
