Well, tonight i bought my first tubed head. Its the Carvin x100b. Its made for guitar, but reading on here that you can play a bass through a guitar amp, as long as its hooked up to a bass cab, i decided to buy it. I got it for $350, which i think is a good deal for 100watts of tubed power. I tried it a little tonight, and i couldnt turn it past 3 out of 10 with out shaking the walls. I didnt really believe in the power of tubed amps, because i thought you just wanted as many watts as possible. I have an SWR Workingman's 4004 amp that i was using before, but it was only 400watts at 4ohms. It seems that this tubed amp blows the SWR out of the water. The amp its self seems in good condition, but im not sure on the tubes, but they sound like it. Anyone else play through one of these amps, or have any reviews on it? Ill try to have some pics of it up tomorrow.
