Time to Upgrade My Amp
Hey everyone. I have played the bass for a year now and I recently traded my Squire Jazz Standard for a used American Musicman SUB (I had to pay a lot of the difference, haha).
Now that I am started to use basses that are higher quality, I think it is time to get a new amp. Currently I have an Ampeg Combo BA-108 25 watt. I like it's growl and volume isn't an issue but I want to have more control over the EQ and have access to gain, overdrive, etc.
I am not in a band, and I only play because I love the instrument, but I want to get the best sound I can out of my basses. I don't know whether I should get a new amp, some sort of preamp or what have you. I've seen people with effects pedals but I don't know if they would work with my amp. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thanks a bunch and if I didn't provide enough info just ask, I'd be glad to elaborate.
