I'm a long time guitar players who is new to bass. I've been playing for the last few months with an Ampeg BA-108 practice amp and an older 50 watt Crate combo, and more often than not plugged straight into my computer with a BDDI. I would like to buy something nicer. I am a hobbyist. My uses are playing at home for my own enjoyment, home recording, and occasional jamming with friends at moderate volume. I've neither the time, interest, or skills to play out. I'd like to buy a head/cab combination that sounds good in a low volume setting. It should keep up with a smaller guitar amp (20-40 watts) and drummer with a small kit and a light touch, all at volumes that won't bring the police to my doorstep. What would you recommend? To give a ballpark price range, let's say under $1000 for the two. New or used. Some might say a combo would make more sense, and perhaps it would. I'm willing to listen.
