: Hi, I'm looking to buy a bass amp to play with my garage band, and I can't throw any more of my money away renting, I need to buy something. My sister's friend lent me her 200 watt amp for a few months while she was away and I used that and it was awesome. I forget what brand it was, I'm pretty new to bass playing, only been playing for a little while. But anyway, I was looking to buy something like a 200 watt amp, for something like $500 bucks. IS that price even in the right ballpark? I was looking at buying a used 200 watt Yorkville but my sister said I should check out the competition before I make a buy. Is a Yorkville any good? What would be my best (used) buy for $500? What can I get for 500 bucks? What do you guys think are the best amps? Any feedbackk on amps would eb very helpful. Tell me anything you know!
: Thank you so much!

well, there is so much to go into about bass amps that it is almost unfathomable. As far as 500 bucks goes, for two-hundred watts you could probably get into a real nice hartke combo amp right around that wattage, they make awesome equipment, i play a hartke stack myself. My best advice for inexpensive bass amps is buy used from a guitar shop, (that way you know it works) and play YOUR bass through it before you buy it. Good luck.
