looking for something not too big, but the best bang for buck valve bass amp, can be combo or head and cab...

going for vintage tones over modern stuff, using P bass.

cheers

Cheap...Traynor, maybe?

If you don't need a huge amount of volume, the old Ampeg V4B is known to be a lovely sounding amp, and are not nearly as pricey - or heavy - as a big-daddy SVT. 100W of all-tube love will get you through a lot of situations.

Look around and find yerself a Sound City 120...120 watts (it's really more like 150!), killer trannys and parts and can still be had on the low low.:beer

"good", "cheap", "vintage", valve", and "bass amp":

words that you won't find all in the same sentence.
