    i have only been playing for a year and i have a fender bassman 60 bass. im looking for something a little louder but not to much money. im thinking somewhere under 550$. any suggestions?
     
  2. What bass are you playing with?! We need to know in order to be of some help. I'll suggest the Ampeg B-100R anyway. It's in your price range, too.

    im playing a fender bassman 60 right now. and i need something louder.
     
  4. Not much, unless you look used. I would try to find a good head, like a used Ampeg or something, and a cab. A thing to think about is if what you buy now can be upgradeable in the future and/or if they will suit your needs. The good thing is if you buy a head and a 2x10 or a 15 cab, you could add another cab down the road and have a kicking rig. Try to find some stores that have a somewhat large selection and try different combinations to see what you like.
