I was wondering if someone here could perhaps give me pointers on shopping for amps. I'm looking to completely replace my current setup which is an old Gallien-Krueger 800RB Bi-Amp and some old 4x10 and 1x15 to match. I'm playing mostly experimental rock (sometimes mellow sometimes pretty hardcore), with a tiny bit of funk to it, but I would like it to be pretty versatile as for instance I sometimes help out a couple of friends of mine who are hip hop artists. I've been considering the Super Redhead as I've heard it's very versatile, and I'm looking for something that's both ideal for recording and gigging. I'm playing a Fender Custom shop Reggie hamilton jazz bass V and I've been told that the 4x10's on the redhead aren't exactly ideal for 5 strings. Then I'd probably get a Son of Bertha 1x15 to go with it. But Recently I saw a "The SWR Big Rig" and by the looks of it, it's a sweet deal for such power, but that raises the question if it's gonna do good things in the studio. And now I've been wondering if I should get a SWR rig at all. Well to totally get to the point, I'm lost in this whole amp thing. I've never really had to seriously get into the whole amp thing since all my amp deals have landed straight in front of me. If anyone has got any recommendations or pointers for a used or new rig that can cost up to just over $2000, I would greatly appreciate it. What would you buy for $2000 ?
