I have been (like most other bassist) searching for that special head/amp that has tone and enough power. I am a big fan of tube amps. I enjoy the warmth they add to my tone, even when at low volumes. I recently played through an old 70's Silverface Fender combo (a VibroChamp to be exact), and it truly sounded amazing. Not very much power of course, but amazing tone. Last week I played through a friends old Fender Super Twin (180 watts of power) and I was just blown away. Are there any reasonably priced guitar heads or combo's(I would disconnect the speakers) made by Fender that would be good for gigging? I use an early 90's Trace Elliot 1084 8x10 cab and I do enjoy quite a bit of volume. My tone is usually very Geddy Lee like, but I do sometimes go for a rounded vintage tone for smooth stuff, and heavy midrange for really heavy pieces. I have a VT Bass pedal for more overdriven tones, so that is not a problem.
