Thanks so much jbassrockboy! And yes, it does help! I love this forum, people reply and give great info. I live in Southern California so plenty of good techs here. Jbassrockboy, was the volume loud enough to play in a rock band that does some outdoor gigs and some pretty big stages. We don't play too loud (one guitarist, bass, drums, and vocals) but I like some head room to play with. I'm also thinking about buying the Eden E300T new tube head. Have you heard anything about that?
Also, other than an Ampeg SVT classic (which I refuse to move due to my age and my aching back) what is a good tube head that gets nice vintage tone and doesn't exceed 55 lbs? I use an old P Bass with Flats.
Thanks so much for your response guys. Really helping me out here. Take care!
