    I've narrowed my combo search to 4 models,
    they are:
    vox t60
    ampeg ba112
    eden n12s
    ashtown mag c115 t300
    I've not played any yet, and I want something that will give me a good warm deep sound with both a yamahaBB 5 passive and a 4 active.
    Volume is not really an issue as I only play in church in a praise band with 2 acoustics 1 electric, and some kind of African drum.
    I guess what I'm looking for is a quality sound at lower levels in an amp that will last, for less than $450. All input will be greatly appreciated.

    I have really enjoyed my Ampeg BA112... I mainly use it for practice and some rare acoustic gigs... The rock-back feature is really helpful...

    i cant comment on the above models

    FWIW, if you can find them used the swr workingman's 12 and WM 15 are both worth a listen, as is an older peavey TNT with a 15" speaker.

    BA112 alot and I like my Trace Elliot BLX80 alot also. My favorite combo was my B115S.

    Currently the BA112 is the bedroom amp and when needed lined out to a power amp and a couple of 15's

    I second the used Peavey with a 15 or used Workingman's 12 or 15 idea.
     
  7. There are a couple of threads on the Eden forum that talk about the silver series. The bassic review is Eden-like sound for less money. But they don't have the kick-back design.

    I would strongly recommend you take one of your basses down to some stores and try out as many combos as you can before creating a short list. What sounds awesome to some, sounds like trash to others. Are you sure that all people responding to your thread play the same basses, plucking the same way, with the eq set the same, to your favorite music? All you will get is a bunch of posts from people claiming their amp is the great.

    Listen with your own ears, then make a short list.

    Good luck.
