    I dont know if you ever heard of Emery Sound product, but they are suppose to introduce a new bass head in a couple of months. I know this product is not for everyone but some of you will be interested.

    Edgar- What's with them?!?! Exposed chassis, small speakers,low wattage, no cab corner protecters, et al. Are these guys trying to get a tax writeoff? Retro is one thing, but those guys are Luddites.

    Ooooooh......tubes, but...

    I agree with rickbass1. Those thangs are a little on the
    delicate side. Even if it was a stay-at-home or studio amp,
    I'd be constantly worried about kids, pets, clutzy drummers, etc.
    I noticed one of the reviews said they were usin' the Superbaby as a
    tube tester (good idea). It is a lot cheaper than the other boutique
    tube bass amp I've heard of (Alessandro: base ~$4K). I musta' missed
    the part on the website that said one of those models was a dedicated
    BASS amp. Is it just not out yet?

    For quirky little tube practice bass amps, there's the Li'l Lanilei ~
    http://www.songworks.com/bassamp.htm.
    It ain't DC powered, but it looks very portable (and sturdier).

    They are suppose to introduce a new 50 watts bass head at NAMM at the end of january. The head might come out in about two months for the public. Dont be fool by the low output, those tube head gives you a big, warm, rich and detail sound you wont find in solid state.

    Ohhh (duh). I'll keep an eye on their site.
    Dude! You don't have to convince me about the inherent superiority of tubes :rolleyes::p
    (check the amps in my profile :D ).

    There are a couple of g**tar players at work. They were talkin' about amps.
    I had to butt into the conversation. One of `em said, "You wouldn't be interested...
    It doesn't have to warm up".
    Gotta' love those treble clef wankers ;) .
