I recently got a, new to me, used bass, Peavey Foundation. If the serial number list on Wikipedia is correct it was shipped in '83, a 4 string with 2 super-ferrite pickups. I has a fairly narrow neck with a rosewood fingerboard which if very comfortable for me. I took it in to a local shop for a setup and it's playing great! $200 + 35 for the setup. It also still had the original molded case - btw this only has a strip of foam on the top of the case running along the strings, were these originally lined more completely? The foam is beginning to flake off leaving small particles all over, I'll probably re-line it a some point. I really love playing this instrument, but I've only been playing it at low volumes thru guitar amps, the tones are good but I'm worried that it may overwork the speakers. I'm thinking about getting a small bass combo amp, size is getting to be at a premium now. A 1-15 cabinet would be about as large as I would want, 2-10" are the same size, are multiple speakers better/worse/just different? I'm just playing it a home now but I'd like it to be capable of playing a small-medium size gig at some point. I generally play Blues/Country/Classic Rock, although with the bass I'm playing a lot more jazzy type things - that thing just sings! - it's soo melodic. Also I find myself playing more funky groove things because it's just so much fun. So any suggestions on amps I should be looking at would be appreciated. I know Peavey makes a lot of Bass gear, but it's too soon in this relationship to be exclusive, or is it? I already have 2 Peavey guitar amps. Budget new would be around $500 but I'm open to going used too. I've always had a fascination with Ampeg (I really want a Super Echo Twin) but I know they've had a checkered past with multiple management companies, I wouldn't know which models or periods to look at. But I'm open to other brands also.
