    Looking to change my setup. I mainly play bass at home and write and record in my little studio. I occasionally have a mate over to jam with whose on guitar. I don't play live anymore and can't see myself doing that anytime soon. I currently have a Little Mark 250 Blackline and Ashdown RTM 210 cab. It's ok for noodling but I think it's time for a change.

    I was thinking of getting a Mesa d800+ and Bareface 1ten cab. However thinking about it a bit more would it make more sense to go ampless and get some pedals? I mainly write and record and have a Clarret 4pre usb interface and radial DI box. Going ampless would make things more portable if I do ever go to a mates for a jam. I play mainly proggy instrumental stuff and some metal, so I was thinking maybe AOU ultra and a couple of other pedals.

    Any advice and views greatly appreciated.
