Hi there, I'm in the market for a new bass amp. I currently have a really awful bass amp which I loathe its muddy and quiet and the minute I pump any volume it rattles...seriously I look forward to setting the Marshall Basstate B65 on fire once I have a new amp. I play only with my fingers or slap and pop and am after a very clear tone. My basslines tend to be very melodic rather than setting a groove and I need clarity but don't want to sacrifice on a deep punchy tone. Ideally I don't want anything huge so the smaller the better and I generally gig in small to medium venues and will use it for practising. It has to be able to sit clearly above an un-mic'd drumkit. I would like reasonable ability to alter the tone but its not totally necessary to have loads of tone adjustment on the amp as long as I can dial in the one I'm after. I think a 2x10 combo is probably about right and have had a look at 3 in my price range although haven't actually had an opportunity to play through them. These are: Ashdown ABM C210T-500 Evo III Ampeg BA300/210 Trace Elliot 1210 Can you suggest any others that would be worth me taking a look at? Many thanks in advance.
