@mretrain99 I can't find any schematics for the new Supros but yes, I'd say that your experience of subtle, shallow, underwhelming tremolo sounds like a tube bias-vary tremolo where the tubes whose bias is being varied (Vibro-Champs et al. vary a 12AX7's bias, Princeton Reverbs et al. vary the...
Fender Blues Deluxe/Hot Rod Deluxe
Peavey Classic 30/50
Marshall DSL40/Origin 50
All got multiple mentions.
If I had to go on the road with 3 other guys in one vehicle, I'd get a pedal-sized Quilter (SuperBlock?) and put it on my pedalboard. Then an EV TL606 if I could get...
The Precision Bass is kind of the Telecaster of the bass guitar.
If this has a straight neck and functional electronics, you could do much worse.
Looks like you've got a couple choices, actually...
GK make pretty well regarded bass amps. Maybe see if you can get that guy to take a little less? But I wouldn't feel like I got ripped off for $150 if all the controls work and the amp is in good shape, doesn't buzz or hum too loud etc.
This GK amp is like Fender combo amps in the sense that...
In no way would I ever suggest that $75 isn't real money, because I've been there, and if I'm being extremely honest with myself, I probably am still there.

If the Fender extension speaker cabinet isn't closed-back, don't bother putting a different speaker in it. Open backed cabinets do not work for bass.
If you can find a Vox MV50 amp, those sound beautiful for a hundred and change (I just bought one for $130). That amp + the Fender ext. cab with...
What's the current guitar amp?
Consider a closed-back or ported speaker cabinet if it doesn't already have one. Playing bass through an open-backed combo amp sounds bad and will destroy the speaker.
Plenty of guitar amps can work for bass, but they need to be paired with a speaker cabinet...
Peavey TKO 115 should be about a hundred bucks on Craigslist. You can also look for a Peavey KB300 for bass, it'll definitely get the job done.
[Judge Smails]WELL, WE'RE WAITING![/Judge Smails]
ESP-DISK on tape? Archie Shepp/Marion Brown on Impulse!? Cecil Taylor on Blue Note? Black Saint? Soul Note? Incus? FMP?
Enjoy the haul, at least one person on earth is jealous of your pile of out jazz cassettes.
