few days back I asked for advice to buy a bass amp for my 15 year old teenage son. He had a Crate 15W practice amp and told me that he needs a bigger amp for his band (high schoolers) many people gave me good advices and today we picked up an almost new Ampeg B100R for $250. My kid just loves it and it sounds and looks so cool. Again we thank you for good advices! Merry Christmast and a Happy New Year to all!
