I play bass for two bands. One being an aggressive crust/dbeat/punk band and the other being catchy/hard to describe punk. My power amp blew in Boston this last summer and I am in need of a new amp. I have never had nice gear when it comes to amps but it got the job done. I play a '77 Rickenbacker out of a Peavy 400 Mark III and a Sunn sa10 power amp with an Ampeg 8x10. The power amp in the peavy blew so I used the Sunn and now thats gone as well. After 14 years of playing I am finally trying to get something nice with a lot of power. I love the tone of the Ampeg SVT Classics but have no where near that amount of money so I have been looking in to the Gallien Krueger 700 RB-II. Would this be a good amp and give me all the power that I need and does anyone have other suggestions of something I could look into?
