Advice on choosing a small, ratty combo amp for soloing.
Without too much of an autobiography, before I was a metronome-using student of the bass, I was a noise/punk guitarist. My band is talking about making an album, and it was suggested that I take a solo or two in my old, "feedback-and-noise" style, but using the bass.
In my head, I hear myself using my wonky old unmodded Boss DS-1 into some sort of small, easy-to-overdrive combo amplifier (for the usual bass parts, I'm sticking with the good 'ol tried-and-true DI method). Is there any particular "Jewel In The Rough" small bass amplifier out there that could give me a ratty, rock 'n roll sound with lots of feedback and distortion with or without my simple pedal?
