Looking for a small bass amp for home use 20 watt(ish) roundabout the 100 mark, am considering the Warwick BC20 as it sounds good on teh youtube demos... Don't need anything bigger as I've been using my Sparrow di when playing live and am very happy with my sound... Any opinions? Or suggestions?

Have a look at Orange Crush bass amps. I remember James on here got one and was happy with it.

Most of the guys up here use the Laney combos, they're cheap and sound great. They've also got enough poke for small gigs and jams if needs be.

The bass player in Sell Crazy has a larger Laney Richter series amp and it's lovely.

I think his is an RB4

Someone on the bass forum suggested I get a bass cab and use my zt lunchbox as a head...

easiest: cheapass combo with power amp input (Fender Frontman-ish) so you can use your Sparrow into it

feasibiliest: SWR Workingman series (cash --> peace of mind exchange service for the casually gigging bassist). Won't break the bank, just your back and any toes that, to be fair, really shouldn't have been sitting there in the first place

It would function, but guitar amps are usually voiced for guitar and don't give that nice low end. You'd probably get more low end with a bass amp and 1x10" than a guitar amp and 1x15".

Yeah there's at least three RB2s kicking around one of the rehearsal spaces I use. They sound great at any volume, they manage to found good when you're ragging them too which is rare for smaller amps.

I have a 25 watt orange crush bass amp too and love it. I really like it a lot more than any other bass amp of that size. It sounds awesome and is the perfect size to pick up and take anywhere with me.

Went to Guitar guitar earlier today and tried the Laney RB2, ended up buying the RB1 as it was just for home use so I didn't need the 30watts 15 will be more than enough and it sounds great for such a small amp.

Be sure to help it settle in its new home by showing it its new bed

I was going to suggest that little Orange Bass Terror thing I saw at the jam on Sunday plus a 1x12, but it looks like it's actually 500W.
