    Well I know what you're thinking right now, Yamaha, Ampeg and Eden!? Of course, eden is going to be better but hear me out. Main thing right now is value for the money as I'm a bit short at the moment. Here are the 3 and kind of 4 choices.

    First up, is the Yamaha BBT500 combo. $440

    Next, is the blem Yamaha BBT500 head and a blem 2x10. ~$400

    Third is a used Eden Metro. $600+
    No pics on that one since I lost the link but just one thing to note is tha I'll have to pay extra for shipping since its not from a store but is from a seller on Craigslist.

    Finally is a used Ampeg B-2 combo. $300

    This one is local so no need for extra shipping fees.


    Well those are the amps that I have to choose from. The Eden is probably the best out of the four but might be out of my price range. The Yamaha seems really cool but Im not sure which is better, combo or head and cab. The Ampeg seems decent, but I don't know how it compares to the Yamaha.

    If it helps at all I play a Musicman Stingray HH, and the tone is just amazing. I need a good amp to complement it as my current amp is just plain junk. I mainly play oldies, jazz, and funk but I play a bit of rock occasionally as well. Not sure if any of this helps but Ill include it anyway :D

    Let me know what you guys think, and thanks!

    Editted Title for specification.

    Anyways, I forgot to mention that if anyone has any other suggestions for combos or rigs that are in the $600 range. I'm looking for something with atleast 200W so anything that fits that would work.
