Alright...here is the jest. Need my low end brethren to help me sift through a situation. Years ago I owned a Mesa M6 and it was probably the best bass tone I have had. I had to sell it my Mesa rig to move to Chicago and go to school. Long story short I am back and playing out and having a blast. I am married now and finances are a bit tight. I currently own a SWR Megoliath 810 ( I scored for 500 bucks used) and a Carvin B800 head ( decent, IMO for the price). I just have that Carbine tone in my head and I do not know what to do. I have tried using various pedals to get different sounds and I end up returning them dissatisfied. So part of me wonders, what are my options? I like my B800, it sounds good, but I wonder if the B1000 would put me more in the ballpark of the M6? I have read on here that many suggest the GK MB series are in the same ballpark as the Carbines. Used prices on MBs are pretty good too. Obviously, the simple thing would be to do is buy the Carbine. Problem is, it would take me a long time to save up. Even the used ones retain their value ( Mesa gear is great). Appreciate any advice or suggestions.
