What would I be better off getting? A line 6 Bass POD as a pre-amp and a power amp of some sort (Carvin most likely) or a Ampeg SVT head, carvin bass head, or SWR head of equal value? I really would like to have the options I would have with the POD, but I feel that I might find something that I like with it. If it helps, I would like to have tone like Jason Newsteds (metallica) from the S & M album. I would also like to have a nice warm distorted option also to use with a wah. I plan on getting a Avatar Cab and I have a peavey black widow (15 inch) in a cab I made to use also.
