$500 bass head

I've got a dead peavy combo amp that I'm going to use a cab. It has a 77' Black widow in it that seems to sound pretty good.

can anyone recommend a head for 500 or under? I was looking into ampeg. I've got an 8ohm 300w rated speaker. Ebay is where I'm looking.

The Ampeg Portaflex 350 sounds really good for under $500. I've used it a couple times as a house rig for show when the bassists are sharing gear.

I'm not mad at the GK MB500. I think it sounds really good but the class D technology still doesn't sit right with me. I don't know how easy it is to repair class D technology. When I have the cash I will definitely be upgrading to something with non-circuit board guts but it is certainly keeping up with weekly use. I don't mind that it fits in my gigbag.

Those are a good workhorse amp. I like the sound. The LH500 is also worth checking out.
