Howdy all, Recently picked up bass guitar and have been making good use of the band PA, running my Geddy Lee Jazz Bass direct in through a Tech21 SansAmp Programmable BassDriver DI. I am running into situations, however, that dictate that I will need an actual AMP. I have always loved the vintage Ampeg tone, but have not been able to capture that, ironically, through an actual Ampeg At least not one of the higher watt models. I've been enjoying the MarkBass heads and cabs even though the sound is nothing like the gritty punch I love in vintage stuff. I've also been looking at Orange Terror amps, and they look and sound intriguing; perhaps the vintage vibe could be found there If I could only find a local dealer. Anyhow, to the point: My current bass playing gig is in a Who tribute band. I enjoy that, but I want to try some more groove-oriented stuff; Motown, old R&B, Beatles and such Can I find an amp that can give me the tonal versatility to take that stuff on? The MarkBass seems like it could, and I'd love to try the Orange if I could find a local dealer. Not sure the Ampeg is what I want at this point. Perhaps my Tech21 could be paired with a power amp and a cabinet ? What'dya all think ? I'd love some help with this! Cheers, all!
