Hi, I was looking for some advice on an amp upgrade I'm going to need in the near future. I play in a hardcore/metal outfit, but we try to keep our influences open and more and more frequently try to bring Latin ideas into our sound. Amp Background: I've had my SWR Workingman's 4004 and 4X10T for 8-9 years now. I've put it through constant use and, in all honestly, it looks like it. That said, I've always loved the tone I get out of it (not to say I'm a complete audiophile or am that good at discerning minute details). But staying close to this sort of tone is fairly important to me. I've always had an aversion to every Ampeg I've ever played. They always sounded a bit flat to me, besides being the industry-standard in my genre. Reason for Upgrade: My band has been getting more serious; we recently got signed to an indie label, signed with a US & Canadian booking agency, and have been hitting the road more and more consistently. That said, it's getting a little embarrassing showing up to concerts with my little half stack when every other bassist has their SVT 8X10's surrounding mine. Does anybody have any suggestions on amps I should consider, given my tone choice? If it helps, here is a link to my band's Facebook page so that you can hear my general sound. If you would, try listening to 'Connections' for a clearer bass passage. http://www.facebook.com/johnnyboothmusic Sorry for the length, but I figure I'll get a better answer if you know my story! PLEASE SUGGEST AWAY!
