Ok, I'm brand new to the forum, so please feel free to direct me to threads that may have already answered this question. I am currently playing an (american made, first year) Ampeg BA 115 hp, which I like, and am pretty happy with. I now have the resources to get a large rig. I am considering the Victor Wooten rig (Lh1000, 410hx, 115hx) from Hartke, Ampeg stacks in the same price ($1500-$2000) range, GK stacks, same power and price range, or the Carvin stack, much cheaper for the same setup. My problem - I love the ampeg sound, and can try out all of the above locally (DFW), but not side by side. Also, I can't try out the carvin stack, obviously. I need something that works equally well with a P-bass, G&L SB-2, or 5 string with EMG's. Opinions?
