  1. Anyone use this amp for bass? I am curious about it. MF has it for I think 1100 and I was staring at it last night. All tube,

    Anyone use it for their bass?

    I used one live back in the 60s for very quiet jazz and dance band gigs with a P bass. It had a good sound but is only 50 watts at best and open back cabinet so won't pump out much volume with bass.

    They record nicely too (again at low volume). I liked the sound very much but they're not too practical for everyday gigging these days. Heavy beasts too.

    Guitar players love them for guitar though and they're much sought after.
