    Jaco didn't use no stinking tubes and he had a warm tone...

    How about an Acoustic 450? Not 300 watts, but you'd never know it. Warm, lots of tone control and onboard distortion!

    PM me if you're curious...I can send pictures and it's a lot, lot less than $1500.

    Buy basses and lots of guns before it's too late! You have been warned.
    You absolutely have the bass collection completed! Now for a head to match your taste in basses. Limited owner knowledge, admittedly but know what sounds good to me! Owned or played many but settled for the ORIGINAL, Ampeg!
    What's known as " the classic bass amp?" Ampeg SVT(tube).....
    Knowing that, go play them. They have several in production and with a $1500.00 budget, you can pick any of them. Just fricken enjoy Ampeg shopping and thank me later......
