First off I apolagize if this was covered before and for the fact that this is a bit of rant. As a keyboardist buddy stated "Guitarists have it so easey, a handfull of sloppy watts, any old cabinet, loaded with what the heck for speakers, add a fuzz face and a bosstone and you are done." Bassist don't have that easy, speakers need to match the cabinet, cabinet has to be designed for specific range of response, sound etc. Tranny's need to be physicaly bigger, more overhead, less sag (in the tube world) and all sortsa parameters need to be tighter, bigger and better. We have discussed watts until most are sick of hearing it. but what about Slew Rate and Dampening Factor? I mean we have to do more than push the cone out, we have to stop the cone travel and suck it back in. Bassists need to do this in a very deliberate fashion. So what I am asking for is a bit of a disc. on Slew Rate and Dampening Factor. Sincerely, Wesley R.
