This will sound crazy, but I would actually recommend that you get a guitar practice amp with a tube. Maybe something like one of these:

Or better yet, something used. Kustom used to make a great 12-watt combo with a celestion driver and a tube preamp. An old Fender Champ is ideal.

My reasoning is, a good low-watt guitar combo is actually a really useful piece of kit. It's great for recording (guitar or bass, sometimes), your guitar-player can use it for practice or even small gigs, you can use it to amp harmonica, electric piano, organ, or other instruments, and it has resale value.

OTOH, bedroom-volume bass amps tend to do everything poorly. Unless it's a B-15, a low-wattage bass combo is usually not going to sound very good (the guitar amp might actually sound better for bass, at these wattages). It won't have much resale value, there is low demand for them, and they just aren't usually very good.

So even as a bass player, I prefer to keep a little all-tube guitar combo in my living room, and leave the 1,000-watt bass rig in the rehearsal studio.
