I'm looking for an amp that can compete with a load drummer thats in a combo format. My band plays originals that are funky, ska punk, rock and pop. I use a Yamaha BB1600 and a Warwick corvette proline. The other bass player in my band has a PV 4x10 that I can use on gigs thats why I want a combo (to practice through at home.) I don't like the other bass players head its to dark sounding. I want clear with charcter. Any suggestions, the best I've heard so far is Ashdown and Trace Elliot but I hav'nt tried many and am interested in SWR. I'll probably get second hand. I also like things simple like my vintage Marshalls (guitar amps) cos I belive the less crap in an amp the better the pure tone. Does this apply to Bass????.
