That's the jist of it. I have an swr sm500; at home, i play it through a hartke 210tp, and just absolutely love how i sound: clean, articulate, can hear every nuance and ghost note. And, its not that quiet, quite loud, for playing in an apartment. With my band, i run the swr at high volume through an aguilar 4x10, and get a grunting tone that doesn't pick up the nuances, rakes, etc. that i so love at home. The only difference in setting is that i turn the gain up higher through the aguilar for tube-y goodness. Bass-wise, i'm using a benavente vortex 5, and a brubaker 4 string w/ bart j's. What's the fix here?
