Best $50 I've ever spent on bass gear...

    So, I love the tone of my PJB Suitcase combo with 4B extension cab. But sometimes you want a little bit of squishy funk. The PJB is too clean for that.

    Bought this on eBay:

    37D3A3FD-7014-4A8D-8552-A9C0E88BD9EF-248-0000004040DD8692_zpsb242245d.

    It's basically the same thing as an ART Tube MP, but supposedly better voiced for the bass guitar. I'd been looking for one for a while.

    Gives the bass a fatter tone with a slight roll-off in the highs and a moderate amount of tubey compression. If you crank the gain, it'll add a bit of grit. Not full-on SVT overdrive, but a little edge.

    I'm very happy with it. Anyone with a "sterile" or "polite" amp looking for some greasiness should check it out.
