Default Bass amp???

I have an Ibanez 10 watt amp that really isn't that loud...I got a job recently so I have some extra money so I was wondering would it make a difference if I got a 15 watt amp just so its a little bit louder..

What wattage amp should I get if I just practice in my room?

What brand amp should I get/What do you recommend?


EDIT: Sorry just noticed this is in the wrong section.

Thats what my friend has, It seems to be loud enough but I might just go with 25 watts...

If you really want a good, solid bass practice amp, go with one of these:

Thanks man, I will consider those but I am looking more in the $150-Down range. I am thinking like 20 or 25 watts.

A 100 watt amp will give you enough power and sound for most any gig you will play. Ampeg, and Fender makes good amps. Ashdown is top of the line. I have a old Peavy Mark IV series head that can push 210 watts at 4ohms and 300 watts at 2 ohms. It should be around 115- 120 at 8 ohms. It all depends on your finances I guess.
This may be an option. The most bang for your buck. 120 watts for $149 and free shipping.

Me and my friend were talking about Behringer and I don't think they would be that great because they are so lo priced. I am thinking about that Marshall right now.
