Spoke to a bassist I havent seen in years last night. He is very well known on Long Island NY,one of the better players. When I finally got around to asking him what amp he was playing through,I got surprised. A Mark IV Peavey..Sunn Cabinet,,all this old school stuff. I would have thought that there would be better sounding stuff than old Peavey heads. He said he feels it`s as good as anything else made today..at least for that old classic Zeppelin,Fender Jazz sound. When I mentioned amps like Acoustic Image,he said he found the sound "STERILE"... So now I am even more confused.
