: I am used to guitar amps and know that 80 watts on guitar amps are hella loud... I want to get into bass, and plan on purchasing a Fender Standard P-Bass and a bass amp, i can not spend over 400 bucks on my bass amp, how many watts would be loud enough with spare to get over drums (i have an extremely loud drummer, really!), what bass amp manufacturers do you reccomend?

Watts carry the Bass notes, not 'loudness'. Roughly 3-4X the watts of the guitar amp.
Don't go by how loud it is on stage, go by how loud it is at the back of the room
comapred to the guitar.
