Hey all...

I've been out of the gigging scene for about 5 years and am finally frothing at the mouth to play again (just part-time this time around). I would love to have some opinions from some of you WORKING bassists as to which companies are making the best MID-RANGE bass heads these days. It's amazing just how many new manufacturers are out there these days. When I last gigged, it was GK, Hartke (YUK!), Carvin, Peavey, and Sunn heading up the mid-range department.

Anyways, here's what I desire: I need something in the $500 - $800 range (no combos!), something that has roughly 300 watts of available power (but sounds GREAT at low volumes), something that will suffice for any Top-40 "bar gig". Last, I need something that's going to sound good with my 5-string. Thank you all in advance for your reviews/recommendations!
