I'm originally a guitar player but now I play bass in a band. I must say, I love it. But I'm very new to the bass world. So I have a few questions: I currently play through a Fender Bassman 250w/210 combo amp (https://www.amazon.com/Fender®-Bassman®-250-watt-Amplifier-speakers/dp/B001R2LYYG) It's great and I love it. I'm not really an Ampeg fan. I love Mark Bass amps but I think it might be too "clear" and crisp for the style I play (hard rock/alternative metal). So from what I've heard on YouTube (haven't played them unfortunately) but Mesa Boogies sound pretty good. Now.. I'm thinking about getting a 215 cab (I want something slightly more powerful than my 210). Then a power amp. Then possibly the ISP Beta Bass DSP pedal (BETA BASS DSP™ - ISP TechnologiesISP Technologies) or the ISP David Ellefson Beta Bass DSP (DAVID ELLEFSON BETA BASS DSP™ - ISP TechnologiesISP Technologies). I've also heard of the brand Trickfish. Bass player sounds I like: Amos Williams (TeseracT) Kirkpatrick Seals (Flyleaf) Should I just go for a mess amp and cab? Or the power amp route? Mesa is expensive but is it worth it? I have an orange 212 cab for guitar playing but do they make good bass cabs? Sorry for all of the questions!
