    Hi!

    Could you help me choose the right one for RnB and Soul music but it should be quite transparent. I've never heared TF except at basstaters.com (I live in Europe). And the price of Glock in EU is not much higher than it would be if I ordered in a TF.

    Thanks for your help.

    I haven't played a TF, but the Heart-Rock is a sweet-sounding amp (and bassically a Soul with a bigger poweramp).

    so, anybody played both, TF and Glock and could compare them in order to get the sound for the types of music I mentioned?

    is Glock "too clean" or is TF "too colored" for that type of music?

    P.S. I'd probably play that head through 210 and 115 Epifani's UL

    The TFB is not too colored of an amp, I use mine with Double Bass a lot.
    If you buy direct you have a 7 day trial period, tho sending it back will be expensive for you.
    I've not tried Glock stuff...
