Bass amplifier: combo or stack?
Normally, an electric bass guitar is played through a bass guitar amplifier. In addition to amplifying the instrument, it also plays an important part in how it sounds. One amplifier might be more suitable for blues, for instance, while another gives you that powerful rock sound you're looking for.
For practising at home or recording, a bass guitar amplifier combo might be the best choice. A combo is a practical combination of an amplifier and a speaker in one. For live purposes, however, you might want to consider a more versatile setup with one or more bass guitar speaker cabinets and a bass guitar amplifier head (known collectively as a stack). For an electric guitar you should always use an electric guitar amp and for electro-acoustic basses or guitars, you should look at acoustic guitar amplifiers.
