My GK150E broke and is in the shop for a week this put me in the mood to check out new gear. I went to a local bass guitar shop and played my DB through a few of the higher end amp. I tried Aguilars, EA, Epifanis and Bergantinos with preamps. My favorite was the Epifani UL-502 going into a 410 cab. It had a warm slightly compressed sound, which was fairly close to my unamplified tone. Im playing louder gigs these days and Im thinking of upgrading. They are pricy but they sound nice. Anyone have any thoughts on these amps?
