I bought a Fender Bassman 25 last night on a 3 day trial to use for small church fellowship meetings so I don't have to drag the larger amp around. I also need a small practice amp, because I have loaned my Peavey Foundation and my little Crate BX25 to my wife's 18 year old cousin, who wants to learn the bass. The Fender performed really well last night, volume was at 50% and my wife said she could hear me fine about 75 feet from the front. The church I was at seats about 200 people and was about 50% full. I compared the amp against the Ampeg BA112 and the Hartke kickback 10, and believe it or not this little 25 watter was louder than the other two. Has great tone too, although the 5 position style switch on the Ampeg gave a little more variety. I am thinking of keeping the amp, but I was wondering what other small combos I should look at first? The Ampeg and the Hartke are not going to be considered, they are simply not loud enough. What about the SWR Workingman's 10? Anything else?
