    For Christmas, I'm gonna treat myself to a nice combo.
    My current bass, a stock Thunderbird IV is kinda **** when it comes to a D.D. Verni, Geezer Butler, Steve Harris puncy/jazzy tone.
    Jazzy/punchy metal tones like:

    I know there's limits to what an amp can do, especially in my ****** price range and due to my lousy bass, but can you recommend me a good combo around these specs?
