    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?

    (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.
