Man, you guys were no help at all. Guess I have to go it alone. ;-)
Since Trickfish has a free return policy you'll be covered regardless.
In response to your original question, I've only ever used their TF112 cabs (usually a pair of them, but have gotten by just fine with a single on small stages), and they're great for everything I do which happens to include the types of tunes you listed. I'm sure their more vintage voiced cabinets would be great as well, but the lower weight of the TF cabs won the comparison for me.
That's a good point -- though from everything I'm reading, I'm anticipating that I won't need to exercise it. I haven't personally come across info regarding certain TF cabs being particularly "vintage-voiced." I wound up choosing the TF408, which seems to get rave reviews. And I love the form factor.
Their TF cabs in general aren’t vintage voiced, but in conversations the 8 and 10 inch cabs with ceramic drivers appeared to be aimed at a more vintage tone goal than the neo 12 cabs.
I definitely wouldn't say any of the Trickfish equipment I have has a vintage tone. I think it's ultra, ultra clean myself. It really enables you to hear the sound of your bass and you can do whatever you want using pedals, etc. beforehand.
Instead of a vintage tone, I would describe it much more as accurate. It's like hearing the instrument through a nice stereo. Not boomy or colorful or anything, it sounds like what you're feeding it.
+1 Yep. Very accurate, clean, full and balanced, to my ears.
I can't praise the Trickfish equipment enough frankly. I think the only amplification that is comparable for me is Epifani.
Anyone using Trickfish with a Boom Bass Cabinet?
Not here but I'm using my Trickfish head with a Phil Jones C8 (5x8) piranha cab. The two pair up wonderfully. Balanced, clear, loud. Tight bottom and penetrating (but smooth) highs! Amazing pairing and tone!
Oh and nice, weighty mids too!
I liked my TF112 so much I got another. The pair embodies synergism to a level I really wasn’t expecting: the combination is a lot greater than the sum of the individuals. Absolutely brilliant! Smooth and clear and punchy and articulate and everything I want in my rig. I’m in tone heaven.
What head are you using?
I’ve been using a Mesa WD800 and occasionally my trusty old Walkabout. Either of them play beautifully with the TFs.
Very, very nice too.
I'd really recommend pairing up with either the Bullhead .5K or 1K head. They're beautifully clean and modern sounding. Simply incredible.
Well of course I need one of them!
I've wanted to try the TF amps for a long while..so I finally took the plunge and snagged the TF Bullhead .5k off the classifieds!
I'm looking forward to compare/contrast from the TF and the GK MB500 Fusion I've been using the past 4-ish years!
Just my humble opinion, the TF is best sounding head out there, if clean, musical and punchy is your thing.
That’s good to hear, because clean, musical and punchy is exactly my thing!!
The top end is what separates TF from basically everyone else as far as I’m concerned. Nothing I’ve ever owned or played has had such a musical top end. I like a tone that’s bright, but not harsh. I don’t know how they do it or what’s done differently, but nothing sounds like TF does up top.
