Hey all! I'm a bassist in a thrash/groove band I've recently landed a job which has very good pay and can now afford a nice high end tube amp. I've always owned solid state and hybrid amps I like the clean sound of solid states but I play metal so I like an aggressive sound so I've always used overdrive pedals to add snarl. But I've heard that tube amps don't have a great slap tone, that concerns me a bit because I do a good amount of slap bass licks in my band. In your guy's opinion do tube amps handle slap sounds pretty well? and live im rarely ever mic'd, up 95% of the time I'm di does the natural overdrive from the tube amp go through the pa speakers?
