now that I've got your attention!....I just noticed in going through the TB Forums how totally subjective all of the stuff is, from basses, amps, bassists, effect, all of it. Examples.... -recent thread in Amps, people seem to love the Super Redhead (SWR) over the Ampeg B2. I happen to love the B2. And warmth, someone said it wasn't as warm (?!). I know what warmth is, I've played B-15s. I don't get it. And the B2 not loud enough? Can't believe it. - Peavey. Almost 'nuff said here. People love to get all high and mighty against the company from Mississippi. The combo's may be crap, but the head/cab's I've played seem like really good stuff. - Old All Tube amps vs New All tube amps. I dunno, Psycho Bass Guy, I can't tell the difference between new/old SVT's or V4s much. - Bass Driver. I'm changing my tune on this thing, don't think I like it anymore. Kills all the mids. Good for adding some grit, though. But it does NOT get all that close to a tube sound. And my sound person doesn't like it. I'm miking the B100R now. - SWR Mo' Bass. Played this thing recently and thought it was a piece of crap, shoddy construction, passable sound. Effects were a joke. Now, I'm not a SWR basher, I think they have some good stuff (Bass 350, cabs), but this thing's a major piece of crap. Basically, this is just my 2c. You gotta try out this stuff on your own, really demo it on a gig, and don't worry about what others think.
