Well, after 7 months off after a rather unflattering boot from a band, I've come back to playing. I've played rock/blues music most all of my life and now I am in a band that plays swing/rockabilly/jazz and blues. Two days after I traded off my beloved BAM210 for a beautiful 12 string guitar (which I love...and don't get started about me playing guitar...I've done that my whole life too!)...I get a call from this amazing guitar player who is kind of a cross between Stevie Ray Vaughn and Brian Setzer and he wants me to join his band! So I jumped (jived and wailed) at the chance. But now I have a dillema...I need an amp head. I don't have the BAM210 anymore, but I do have my bass (Cirrus 5 string) and a Peavey 410TVX cab. Anyone have any idea what head works well with that kind of music and my other equipment? I'm kind of leaning towards a rather flat sounding head...something that gives a straight-forward, no frills punch. I use Labella black nylon tapewounds on my bass and I get a great sound out of the guitar player's SWR bass combo amp (He's got tons of band equipment as he also plays bass, drums and keyboard as well). Anyone play this type of music and what would be your recommendations? I've got 3 months before our first gig to find the right head. I'd like to keep the price around $300-$500. Ah, it's nice to be playing again!
