this is not just about amps, but mainly is: i am hoping to purchase a loud enough amp with lots of room for medium sized gigs (150-300w), but don't have the slightest clue where to start, although i know what sound i want. my clean tone i like is really basically a bassy jazz tone, but then i tend to go to a really powerfull heavy ditorted sound along the lines of muse. with also some sub synth stuff too. (basically a very flexible amp) i have used a bass pod to get these sounds but the effects are limited so im upgrading to boss gt6B hopefully if it proves to generate a good tone with it's preamps and modelling. i have a stagg 5 string bass (shameful and a big loss of quiality), but am hoing to buy a fender jazz 5 string to go along with a complete change in all my gear. (maybe an active will do better too?) price range is about £400 most for amp and £300 most for fx. second hand is an option. mainly help on which amp to buy, but also some info on the GT6b or other good multi effects.
