Hello all. Started playing electric bass about a month ago. Need to buy an amp in the near future.... We just play in a basement right now so I dont need anything huge... But I would spend a little extra $$ to get something is good.. Some of the amps I have been looking at are the Gallie-Krueger Backline series. Something in a single 15 or maybe the (2) 10's.... Haven't sat down and tried anything out yet.... One question I do have.... My brother plays guitar. I would like to get an amp that is comparable to his guitar as far as output goes. That way we're sort of on the same page... He plays through a Peavey 5150.. It's only 60watt and really cranks for such a small amp(although it doesn't compare to his old Marshall half stack).. Usually he plays it on volume setting 2 and even that is loud for the basement we play in... It's also a tube amp.... How do the solid state bass amps compare to the tube amps? The GK Backline is solid state.. The Backline 210 is 200w(or 300w with external cab) and the Backline 115 is 175w I beleive will this be more than I need to compare? Oh, BTW.. We play stuff like Green Day, Suicidal Tendencies, etc..... Thanks!
