AER Bass One. Great for studio and small gigs. But £$£$£$£$£$£$££££OUCH!

I bought a used MarkbassLil Mark 3 and built a 2x10 cabinet with a pair of celestion green label neos in it. Regret not making two separate 1x10" cabs though.
Light as a feather, cheap and works for anything from a bedroom to a stadium (using the DI out into the PA
Although frankly pretty much any of the current crop of inexpensive lightweight bass amps would work.

Dont bother getting a tiny little amp if that really is all you need. Buy one of the Mini Bass headphone amps & if you dont already own some decent cans for the studio, you have a bonus in the form of nice headphonestoo!
