I generally don't start too many of my own threads. . . but I need the TB expertise. I have done a few searches and I know this topic - Amp under $___ - comes up fairly regularly, but I want to get my situation out there. I have a Crest CA9 and Demeter 201/Epifani Quest II through Epifani cabs as my "big rig." What I'd like to do is find a head that can get a fairly hi-fi vibe and good power (preferably above 300 watts at 4 ohms) for the small stuff -- all I've really got in mind is Eden in that price range. I understand that nothing is going to be truly transparent, especially not an Eden, but something that has clarity and bite. I'm thinking a TF 420 is the best bet for that great all-purpose tone and good power, but that'll run in the $700 range. There's a WT 300 on the Bay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Eden-WT-300-Bass-Amp_W0QQitemZ7404286817QQcategoryZ1288QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Only 175 watts at 8 ohms but not expensive at all. Anyway, any ideas?
