Afternoon ladies and gentlemen, I have for your consideration two very different beasts here today, and, from the looks of it, something that my google-fu wasn't able to bring up a comparison on. I've played the Terror through a similar 2x10 setup as my practice rig, and dug it, but wanted to see the options out there. My list so far is as follows: Orange terror 500 Pros: -Cheaper (though i'm almost to the full-tube experience) -Lighter -Less expensive long term ownership - Possibly louder (just by looking at watts) with just an 8 ohm cab, or two 8 ohms to knock it down to 4. Cons: -I have a markbass LMII, I feel I'd just be replacing it with something more expensive/slightly better with an actual tube pre. -Would have to do some jimmying on my Mesa powerhouse 410 (8 ohm) to get a speakeron input in there. Not difficult, just extra work. Fender Bassman 100T Pros: -All tube -Like the sound from videos (haven't seen one in person) -Dual channel -Auto Bias (something that I won't have to worry about with the terror) -Looks -Cleaner DI out (from what my searches have warranted) -Cleaner sound in general. Cons: -Heavier than Terror bass (With the mesa 4x10 = a rig about 150lbs, with the 2x avatar cabs, ~125) -All tube (Expensive cost of ownership long term?) -Not one local to demo I play mostly indie/prog rock with a fair amount of fast passages and some tapping. Would really like to get a chunk of that tube sound. Can anyone shield some light on this predicament, and maybe we can act as a resource for people asking this question years from now. Thanks!
