  1. Whats the best and cheapest amp (like a 200$ price range) to start out with? Possibly for a fender prescision bass.

    Yorkville BM100. It has a 3-band EQ and a 15" speaker. It's good for practice. I think it sounds better than anything you can get for that kind of money. I got mine for $400 canadian which is around $250 USD.

    i'm convinced the best cheap first amp is the peavey TKO or TNT. I think they go used for about $200, or thats how much i sold mine for. It has a 7 band eq and lots of other tone options. it has a 15 in speaker and i think its 80 watts for the TKO and maybe 130 watts for the TNT. Its real loud and rumbly, and yoiu can gig with it for a while. I'm not like a peavey rep or anything, i just think they are one of the best beginner amps. its what i started on and it served me well till i got my Hartke 7000.
