    Many performing rock basses talk of using a guitar head and cab for grit when recording. Do you and do you use it live with a bass rig?
  2. A friend of mine plays g#itar and bass, and used to use his marshall for his bass, and it sounded like crap! He just baught a svt-cl. I dunno, thats my experience in using guitar amps.
  3. Grit is just another word for distortion and yes I have recorded bass with a guitar head. Did it with Gary Cambra from the tubes through his H&K head, sounded Phat!

    Live performance is another story and another life in itself.

  4. I used a pro jr. for some recording and got a wicked nice tone out of it, I had to make a post about it :hyper: .

    Also I don't know if anybody considers the fender bassman a bass amp anymore, but I really like the tone that the traynor yba-2 "bass mate" (traynors version of the bassman) gives ya.
