Alright, I've been driving myself crazy searching for the perfect amp from $400-1000 with 400+ watts, so I'm turning to you fellow bassmen for help! I need an amp that'll give me versatility, but my main tone needs to be warm, punchy, growly, tube-ish, and motowny, and to sit well in 4-piece mixes at small to mid-size rock shows. I play mainly classic rock, funk, and motown, but I dabble in thrash and death metal as well. My list so far is this: - Ampeg SVT 3 Pro - Ampeg SVT 7 Pro - GK 1001RB-II - SWR WorkingPro 700 - Mesa/Boogie Walkabout - Eden WT550 After reading a TON of threads about it's low power and technical issues, the SVT 3 Pro is sounding less and less appealing. I played one at GC the other day and absolutely loved the tone at a volume of about 3 with the EQ on and set flat. However, I don't want to buy an amp (especially new for $999.99) that's going to sound underpowered at mid-size gigs. I also played around with the GK and the SWR, and although they sounded great--very clear and punchy--they didn't have the warmth I'm looking for. Possibly because they're straight solid-state. The rest on the list I added after reading suggestions made to others on TB. Either way, I appreciate anyone's opinions on these amps and will definitely entertain suggestions of different amps of any brand or model. Thanks guys!
