Manny, if you want to buy something good that will last for a some time (until your needs change severely) you'll have to spend a bigger amount of meney.I'd suggest you invest the money you're talking about and something more for a much better and more reliable 100watt bass amp. It can help you a lot in learning to control your instrument dynamics plus it's excellent for band rehearsing and small gigs (used as a monitor with a mic) without having to push it to the limits.

A good 100watt(RMS power output)amp is the Ampeg BA-115(bassamp series). It has a good bass,mid &treble and a 5 position Style control (excelent mid presets).For some extra bucks you could get the Ampeg B-238(B series Combos) with a 150watt(RMS)power output.It's good for rehearsing and stage and also has a drive control and a 9band EQ.It's great for 5 and 6 string basses(it has two 8"drivers).Both models give a unique and extremely clean tone that can easily be distinguished from the rest of the instruments.

For less expenditure I'd suggest the Hughes & Kettner BassForce Series. The BassForce L (100Watts) comes with an FX Loop and the BassForce XL (200watts) give's a lot of power into your hands for a relatively small amount of money.

Also be sure to test(play) the amp you're going to buy.That's all from me!I hope I helped you.
