Hi, In my pursuit of being a better bass player, years ago I bought my bass and a starter amp (Peavey 65-watt combo), and consciously decided to ignore all the "techie stuff," just so I could concentrate on theory and technique. The problem is, as I've gotten better and better, now I'm playing more and more, and playing gigs more and more. The amp I bought almost a year ago, (a Carvin PB200-15, a 160W combo), just doesn't seem to have the punch I need. No matter how I play with my levels, I'm overdriving and clipping the thing when my band really turns it out. I want to buy a head/cab setup, but since I neglected ever learning much about the technical side, I have very little idea what to get. I play jazz, blues, rock, funk, alternative, and whatever else we're in the mood for, and I need a lot fuller, rounded, warm sound, that's also punchy when needed, and clear on the higher tones. Do I need 300 Watts, or will I outgrow that? Is 600 enough, or will I ultimately want to go up to 1000? Right now we're playing bars and clubs, with crowds not much more than 200 ever. Does Carvin make a good enough product, I love their basses? Is there something else you can suggest? People seem to love Eden. I'm leaning towards 2X10s or a 4X10. Sorry, I know it's a lot of questions, but everyone is always so knowledgable and helpful, I figured I'd rack your brains.
