Are there decent amps under 100?
The amp I'm using right now is around 8 years old and it's a cheap one I got a long time ago and it really sucks. Any recommendations for an amp under / around 100 that are above 15 watts?
I just got myself a Fender Rumble 25 that seems great to me. 104.99 with a cable from musicians friend with free shipping. Aux in, headphones, distortion and loud. Check it out.
That Rumble 25 is probably the best bet staying under $100. Bumping the price up a bit can get you some more options but that's going to be a pretty good option until you get over the $150 range, and stays strong all the way to $200 (where the Rumble 40 comes in). There are others brands beside Fender, but the current Rumble line have a great reputation (but don't skimp the $20 and drop to the Rumble 15 - you'll regret it).
The used market can be really good for this - my local Craigslist has a Rumble 25 (which is a great option) for $40, and a few bigger/more powerful options for under $100. Since you have something (you've lived with it for 8 years, another month is endurable) you can keep your eye out for something that fits your needs and budget.
Bought a Fender BXR60 for 70 bucks used. All the electronics are perfect condition despite being used by a gigging bassist. I've found the older guys are happy to sell their used gear for a much fairer price because they've moved onto better equipment.
