You could find some steal at that price, look for sunn, traynor, ampeg... might be different where you live but here for $400 USD you can easily find an old YBA, YRS, YRM, Sunn head (Sonaro for example), I got my ampeg v2 for about that price. What a deal in my book

No problem ! :) be aware that these amps have no master volume so if you don't play some huge gigs you will want to get an attenuator or you'll never crank them. I'm getting away with a little weber 10W attenuator, I have no clue how it succeed to handle my 100W Earth SuperBass producer and my 50W ampeg V2... but it does !... for now :p

The late 70's non-distortion circuit Ampeg V4s have a master volume. I actually prefer them for this reason.

usually Laney AORs and most musicman models can be had for $400 or less. If you want a tiny bassman the Pignose G40 and G60 are killer deals for newer but china made amps (designed by Dennis Kager of ampeg, sundown, etc).

I regularly jam with a guy that uses a Pignose G60 and I'm surprised to say it sounds awesome. He drives it with just a Tubescreamer and he sounds really good.

It's a great cheap amp, I would probably not pay $500 for it but I got it for cheap so.. It's a peavey copy so if you like old SS Peaveys you'd probably like it.
I prefer to use it on guitar, the normal channel gives a good ''cranked tube amp'' kinda sound and the distortion channel sound pretty awesome on guitar too, distorted and almost fuzzy sound. You add a bit of reverb and you're good to go IMO

Here's a shitty soundclip I posted this summer, single-coils - reverb pedal - Earth - Weber attenuator - roland interface. Distortion channel, distortion all the way up, volume really low.
The reverb pedal is kind of hard to tame so there's a shitload of it in this but, also the attenuator was most likely all the way down so it might choke the sound a bit but yeah you can get an idea...

For bass the clean is good but I'm having a hard time getting a distorted sound that I love, I prefer the ampeg in general but especially on bass. The fact that I still haven't played loud without the attenuator might not help

tldr: Great cheap amp, like peaveys and traynors. If you can get one for cheap go for it !
I've come to a point where I don't see myself getting rid of any of these 4 in the picture.

have all my amps set up in my music room (shared with a bit of the kids toys), so a good opportunity to take some pictures

the Matamp is only running into the 4x12...the white 1x15 cab under the Matamp head is for the Acoustic 150 head.
