    So I need to buy a small bass combo for my church. I want to get something nice for the bass players there. The room is very boomy, so I need an amp that is either real punchy or flexible to dial in a good sound. The bass players that play are not gear heads at all. I've approached them about what they want and they don't care. What would you guys recommend in the 500-700$ range?

    Hey thanks for the idae! I never considered a GRAMMA! Hey does the GRAMMA still work if your using a tilt back amp stand?

    I came here to recommend exactly the Rumble 500. I own one, super happy with it.

    I'm enjoying the TC Electronics BG250. It has the toneprint feature which lets you add effects like compressors and choruses as well.

    Rumble 100 or 500. The 200 is the same size and weight as the 500, so if you want something bigger than the 100 I'd make the jump up. I have the 500 and like the 2 x 10" speaker combo.

    If youd like a more modern sound than the Rumble provides (IMHO), perhaps check out some of the Gallien Krueger combos in the MB range - the 115 or 210 would both probably do fine for your purposes

    Based on your having mentioned that the room is boomy, the more control you have over different frequencies, the better you can eliminate excess "boom".

    Yes. Just make sure you center the stand on the GRAMMA.
