    It's been weeks since I bought anything for bass, so I'm not feeling very well. I've been thinking of getting rid of one of my pre-power setups, and going for an all tube (or sounds like all tube) head.

    These are my Ideas :

    Mesa Boogie V12 Big block : Tried and really like.
    Trace Elliot V8 : Never tried or heard or seen.
    Sunn 300T or Fender bassman 300 pro : Tried a few products from both companies, but not those models.

    I play Rock on the heavy side, rather loud, fingers, and picky about tone.

    Cabs are SWR 810 Megoliath, Bergantino HS410, plus a few others, but those two are my gig cabs.

    Any ideas, advice, counter-propositions, or therapy will be appreciated.

    If you find a V8, buy it. There were less than 100 produced though, and most people that have them aren't too willing to part with one.
