Here's the thing: I'm 44 y.o. weekend warrior . Most of the times I go ampless and I play whit whatever I find when some backline is provided. I plug my bass into my sansamp and I send a signal to FOH , then plug the Sansamp to the amp and I use it as a stage monitor (I set it flat) Lately I've been doing some gigs when there's no backline and/or backline is just a bass cab...so I must grab and carry my bass head and sometimes, a cab. I use an old HArtke HA3500 which I have since early 2000's...(there wasn't class D amps back then). I love it.. It's not heavy but it's huge if you compare it with brand new amps out there..so after 18 years I decided to go out and buy a brand new bass head. I'm considering the new TC Electronics BQ line ..they're light,loud and cheap..My tone comes from the Sansamp..I'll use them as a poweramp, basically... I'm considering other options with on board distortion like the Darkglass Microtubes 500 or the TC Electronics BG 500 (all those Toneprints looks awesome)..So I won't need to carry the Sansamp to the gigs...They're a little bit more expensive.. I like Hartke and I saw the TX300 which has on board Overdrive but the overdrive tone didn't like me too much... I like the Bias head mini for bass, It seems sound god, it's light and loud but I don't really need all those modellers..so basically I'll pay for things I won't use..and for the price I may get the Darkglass.. Any other suggestions?
