My drummer and I had gotten into a discussion recently about the old solid state amps me by Teisco, Harmony, Kay, etc back in the 60's/70's and how they still sound pretty different from most modern amps and how "vintage tone" doesn't belong solely to tube amps. This got thinking about, and then looking pretty in depth for, an old solid state bass amp by these manufacturers...and I'll be damned if I can find more than 1-2, and the prices aren't great. This makes me stop and wonder: These companies made/sold basses, we see those all the time, so were they just marketed without amps? Did they just sell them guitar amps and hope for the best? Did people just buy guitars/gtr amps with greater frequency than basses that it's seemingly a 50:1 ratio? Did people more often buy higher quality gear if they were playing bass? I'd love to hear first hand recounting from anyone who was around, as well as any theories from all TB. Also if any one knows of a particular model that was/is awesome and can actually be found these days, clue me in!
