Hi all, I used to play the bass a little bit (a few years back) and now I am getting back into it. I have a nice fender '75 ri on the way and now I am amp shopping. I have spent the last few days reading old threads and learning as much as possible (although much of it is way over my head). For the music I want to play it seems like the Ampeg B-100r is the logical chioce for me: small enough for practice, big enough for jamming, VINTAGE TUBE SOUND, reliable, not cheap, not too spendy. HOWEVER, It is lacking in features that seemingly would come in handy. Things like the ability to add another cab, xlr line out, and rca inputs just sound like a good idea to me (as a newbie). Does anyone make a quality, VINTAGE TUBE SOUNDING solid state combo amp with these features? (it simply must have that old school sound!) Thanks everyone!
