    I'm going to upgrade my amp soon. I have about $700(Canadian) to spend. I have an ESP LTD B-50 bass and I like to play music like Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, etc...
    So what do you recommend?

    Well, it's going to depend a lot on how you want to sound. Do a search and you'll find lots of posts where people have offered advice on subjects such as this here in the Amps forum.

    For that ammount of money, you'll probably looking at a new combo amp around 100 watts or so or a used amp with a bit more wattage. Go to dealers and try out every amp that you can - no matter what the brand. Buy what you like or save up to get what you REALLY want.
