I'm currently waiting for a 5-string bass to arrive, it'll be my first bass. Now I just need an amp or something. Basically I will be playing at home and recording, no live work (I'm a guitarist really..), not now or in the future so I don't need tons of power or massive cabs. I will be playing a wide range of styles from jazz to funk to rock and possibly a little bit of metal as well. My budget at the moment is around 500€ max. I'm thinking I should either get some cheap amp head (Behringer BX3000T is in my mind) and cab - 1x15 or 2x10, whichever is better with a 5-string. A combo would be fine as well. Basically what I need is something that: -Sounds good (planning to play without overdrive mostly). -Has versatile controls (don't need multiple channels or a 30 band EQ or anything like that though). -Works well with a 5-string bass. -Costs under 500 euros. Alternatively I'm open to something that I can plug into my computer and use through that..I'm thinking of the Yamaha Magic Stomp Bass (haven't seen it for sale in Europe yet though). Then again I figure that a proper amp+cab will sound better than DI/amp modeler/whatever through computer speakers (Altec Lansing ATP3, 2 flat panel speakers and a subwoofer). Any thoughts on that?
