just wanted to say... "I love you, man!"
Heh, do I detect a hint of sarcasm, or is that amp honestly all of the following:
or did it just save your life somehow?
Not quite sure I understand. Are you being serious?
I played thru one of the Bassman's for rehearsal, it barely got the job done for that application. For home practice their fine, but not alot of bottem end, needless to say.
I used one all through my jazz and strings class in college. Not loud but a good sound. Did everything I needed it to.
Used it with a 77 mustang
You're young aren't you?
But it's only the best because that's the one I have. Well, in the $350-$400 price range anyways. That's my opinion though.
Yeah, no 100 watt combo will be loud enough for any kind of serious jam session or gigging. Plenty for light practice though.
my SWR LA-15 (older big box version) rocked 2-300 person venues.
Best amp ever is usually the one you have at a gig you played perfectly and you're happy as he!! how you sounded ---at least at that moment. Then either reality, G.A.S. or amp-envy eventually gets you re-thinking what you thought.
I have had that amp for 10 years. I have owned many amps since then.. Maybe I got a freak one. Maybe the tone just got imprinted in my brain. Maybe I just know it in and out like no other amp. I don't know.
All I do know is that I can plug any bass into it, and it sounds great. The clarity is great, and it has a ton of punch.
I have plugged 20+ basses into this thing. You name it - this thing sounds awesome. P-basses, Jazz basses, active basses, passive basses, acoustic basses, 6 stringers, it doesn't matter.
While it is quite loud for a 25W amp, it does fall short in the volume area so I am constantly trying to find something louder to match the tone. I can certainly practice with it, and I can jam with a reasonably volumed drummer. At coffee shop style gigs it is loud enough, or I can mic it and run it through the PA.
The closest thing I have found to matching the tone from this amp is my Markbass LMII that I am using right now.
However, my Fender Bassman 25 and I have a special bond that will never be broken.
Still searching but for now it's the Eden WT-550.
Ok, while were on the small combo subject;
Line 6 studio 110
(can't quite cut through loud drummers, sometimes I miss the bottom end)
