1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Reassigning love.

    Anybody ever love a piece of gear, but realize it doesn't suite you?
    I may be drunk. But it's okay. I'm not a supporting member.
    I've got my mom's old Peavey Musician 400 series head. I love it. My mom played the **** out of it through the late 70's and 80's. I recently started using it for my band. The sound is great, but it's too much amp for anything I do. I can't even get it above 9:00 for outdoor gigs, and any venue in town wants to run a DI to FOH.
    I already have a vague idea of what to replace it with, but has anybody else had trouble moving beyond a piece of gear that has sentimental value?

    Naah man. The volume kno can go from 1 to 7 (or even 10) for a reason. Its totally OK to run volume at 2, no need to cank it up unles you need it. Play the amp!!!
