I picked up a promethian (ibanez) 110 combo for stupid cheap off cl. Not bad. The combo is not gig worthy but the head pops out and can do 300 at 4ohms. Not bad for 120$.

Here's my favorite little practice amp. It's a Fender BassMan 25: 1x10" (no tweeter), 25 watts, 3-band eq, aux rca input & volume (works great with my drum machine). I bought it new in the early 2000's and it still functions perfectly & looks pretty good. It even records well direct in a pinch, even though it records unexpectedly thick & bass heavy. I never particularly cared for the monitor style kick-back construction feature though even that has been useful once a nd a while.

I really liked compression, so I piggy-backed the amp with a dbx 163x:

Also, a general gripe about practice amps: why don't they all come with built in tuners? You'd figure that'd be a cheap easy thing for amp makers to include & almost everyone needs one anyway. [smilie=coz.gif]
