So I've got a Carvin BX600 that's pretty much "my sound" on the surface, but for years I've had grounding issues and sound issues with the DI. The new Carvins have the class D amplifier that just doesn't give me the oomph of the older ones, so I'm looking at a replacement amp, and will probably put the Carvin in the practice room. I've played through a couple of SVTs and the newer Fender Bassman amps and, while they sound great, don't sound $800-1500 greater than the alternative. I like the tube sound but so far I've gotten by just fine with raw SS wattage. The two amps listed in the title are the amps I'm considering, but I'm open to suggestions of others in the sub $1000 price range. I'll probably be putting them through my Carvin 210 and am looking at 410 cabs as well (Carvin, Avatar, etc.) I play in a band whose sound is a blend of classic rock, soul, alt country and folk punk, so some aggressive tones are nice but I'd like to be able to get a nice pocket tone going to. Thanks in advance for any input.
