TC Stacatto for the 'ultimate' Ampeg tone?

    One of the few combinations that really made me grin was a Tech21 VTBass into a TC Electronic Staccato combo amp.

    Everything was just 'on' for me whenI tried that at a Steve's Music in Ottawa a long while back and I'm curious if there are any other amps that compare to the Staccato.

    It got me the 'Ampeg' tone I wanted that I could never get with the real thing.

    Being able to opt OUT of that magic is a nice touch. Especially when that clean, tight, responsive tone is on hand.

    What gets you where you like to be?

    Jule Amps "Monique" into a Crest CA9

    (years ago my response would have been Ampeg SVT but my 56 year old body just won't lift 85 pounds any more) :meh:

    Mesa Bass 400, input 2 with the bass and treble shift engaged, and a pretty healthy dose of the bass knob. Net exactly like a real SVT, but close enough for me.

    ^^ lol. That's what I thought.

    I do enjoy a VT Bass through an Eden WT550.

    So what bass do you use to get the Fender tone? :oops:

    On a more serious note, I'm happy with my Ampeg.
