To be dry about my answer, no I've never showed up on a piano trio gig and had our drummer put into a plexiglass sound booth. I have played plenty of them unamplified, though.
In all sincerity, you're lost. Happens all the time. If you want discussion on "the sound of tube amps", you'll have better luck yonder way: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f45/
And for the record, "yanks" are not nearly as up-tight as TB Double Bassists.
