Hi, I would be very grateful if someone could help me solve my problem. This is my rig: Warwick Corvette Standard bass. Hartke HA 3500 head. Hartke VX 410 Cab. Sansamp RBI. This is it: I just don't feel that I have enough control over the tone when I play through my Hartke amp. It's amasing for rock (especially if I use the Sansamp), but when I play funk or jazz, it is just never right. Playing Jaco-style is downright impossible. (And don't go there saying it's all in the fingers ) The sound is just too massive, it's just too "thick." It's very hard to get a cutting sound, unless I boost the presence and highs very much. I feel that I easily can have a "funkier" sound on any small practice amp. I have heard so much good about the Hartke head, though, could the problem be the cheap vx cab? Just a tought.... Anyway: What amp/cab would you advice within the same price range as the Hartke? I don't wanna have another 4x10, so it could also be a combo. And as I've said, I wanna have a funkier sound, that could also be suitable for jazz. I just love the playability on my Warwick, and seeing as it sounds good on other amps, I don't wanna change it. Thank you so much.
