First off, I apologize if some of you have answered this question before, but I've found insuffcient info on these particular combos. I recently moved into an apartment with roomates far away from my Ampeg/Mesa rig and I need to plug my jazz bass into a combo amp...I'm in desperate search for a combo practice/bedroom amp-that is in my price range ($100-160). I need something that can be: -Decent Quality (no behringer cheapness) -Fat tone, with decent gain -Light and compact -Versatile enough for Hard Rock/Metal/Funk/Jazz/Salsa -Both passive and active pickups supported -Has a headphone out jack (to not bug my roomates) -an output to play along with cds I know I'm asking a lot for such a tight budget! Here's what i've narrowed down my choices to... Ashdown Perfect Ten Bass Combo Amplifier (30 Watts, 1x10 in.) $160 Ashdown After Eight Combo Amp (15 watts, 1x8in.) $100 Nemesis N8 by Eden $140 (40 watts, 1x8in) I have a friend thats had a Nemesis for years and I have read good things about Nemesis and Ashdown on here so these 3 combos are my top choices...here are some that are nicer on the wallet ; that I can buy in a store nearby and don't need to wait on shipping. I'm not sure if they compare to Nemesis or Ashdown quality wise-> Danville Combo Bass Amp $130 at local store... 30 watts (I have never heard of Danville and the guy in the store told me over the phone about it, I have not played it) Please tell me if you guys know anything about this brand! Ibanez SW20 Sound Wave Bass Amp $105 or Ibanez IBZ10B 10W Bass Amplifier $75 Sorry for the long thread...And Thank you for your help!
