Need help finding the rght equipment

  1. Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I´m in desperate need for some help to verify which bass equipment would fit to me and my music.

    Before I start I want say that the dealers I talked to couldn´t give me clear answeres on my "simple" questions and only want my money.

    So here we go... I give you some infos about what I have already in mind, some background about me and my music style and what I need/want.

    Me and my music:

    - I´m a noob!
    - I´m a long-haired hun without any technical experience
    - I don´t perform with virtuosity. I only work the upper two
    strings of the bass ("E" and "A" hehe) very fast and straight
    - I play in a Black/Viking Metal Band
    - We play in small clubs up to medium venues for over 2000
    people
    - We are tuned at "E"
    - I have a budget about 2000 €
    - If you need to listen to our sound to help me pls visit our
    band´s homepage and look under downloads there are some
    mp3. Maybe it gives you an idea of the sound I would like to
    have always ;oP (No advertising... really it´s only to help
    you to help me (arrrrgh))

    I´m very sorry it´s all on german but we couldn´t add an
    english version yet :-(


    What do I need/want:

    - a very deep punchy ( a lil dirty ) sound
    - a sound that can be played very loud without slipping into
    slobbery (for small clubs up to medium venues for 2000 ppl)
    - only a few buttons... nothing too complicated (plug and
    play stuff)
    - ummm... equipment that is not too expensive
    - clear answeres which doesn´t leave me even more
    uncertain ;oP
    - any hints you can give me


    What equipment do I already have in mind to buy:

    - Ashdown ABM 500 EVO head
    - Ampeg heads (??? dunno which)
    - 410 TVX 350 W (4 Ohm) 4x10" cab
    - Musicman S.U.B. bass


    Sooo pls try to help me out of my dilemma... I really don´t know what I will need to provide me the sound and loudness I´m searching for and won´t bankrupt me ;oP

    I´m looking forward to you replies :)

    *waves*


    Ah and pls don´t say "If u want a very deep tone... tune down on "D" or "B", you noob!" ... check my sig. ;oP

    Ashdown amps would probably be right up your alley.

    Good stuff and readily available in Europe.
