    If you could choose any All-Tube bass head what would it be?

    I already did, my Classic 400. Not sure it's 'best' but it's the one I chose and I couldn't imagine digging my tone any more than I do now :bassist:

    FWIW, IMHO/E & YMMV

    If I didn't have to pay for it:

    Or a V8 or similarly expensive and rare amp that I will never actually even see. Something I could sell and pay off my car with. ;)

    In reality, my Mesa D180 has caused me to stop looking for amps. I don't regret parting with any of the amps I've owned in the past, it all led up to this one.

    right now, from all that i've played thus far, the Sadowsky SA200, no doubt.

    course, cant wait to hear what brad at Jackson Ampworks has in store for us. ;)
