OK, I have a limited budget. I need a head that will have enough punch and power to drive a good set of cabs or an 8X10. I need to get clarity on the low B string without any issues, and I need to do this without being miked. I also need to be able to hit the high notes for Bass solos. Yes, I need this to happen with a full band that includes a drummer, 2 guitarists, and a vocalist. They are all pushing plenty of power, and have the ability to be overwhelming if need be. What would be a good deal for around $1000.00 in your opinion? I have looked at what seems to be hundreds of items and have not made up my mind yet. I know that my current rig doesn't do the job, and I need to make something happen. Oh, I prefer new stuff. I don't have an issue with used equipment, but I would prefer to have something with a warranty. I also want that new toy smell. I smell GAS.
