I was in a car wreck and lost my bass amp, rack, and an old Lexicon Alex. Also lost a car. Happily, I am bruised and sprained but not broken, and will be back to playing bass in another month or so. In any event, I am replacing an Ampeg B5r, which had a great plug-in-play tone, sat well in the mix, sounded great in both my blues/classic rock and Rush projects. I play an AmJazzStd with maple fboard and a fretless Cort B4Fl Artisan. I am of two minds on replacing this setup. On the one hand, there are used eden WT400's, which I have demoed, and which I like, and which are light. Could throw in an old computer bag. There are Traynor YBA-200's, which are not too heavy, since don't need a rack, and would have tubey goodness. Cannot demo, but liked the 100w V4b I heard at G****r Center lest week. I have a line on an Alembic preamp, which I have demoed years ago and remember as righteous. Could pair that with an inexpensive power amp. Problem is, I can't demo them together. I am looking for a round sound, play with my fingers, and do not slapapopawacka too much. Would need to cut through two guitarists and harmonica (i.e. three fender bassman rsissues) keyboard and a moderately loud drummer. Think Gov't Mule/Allman Bros./Los Lonely Boys/ZZ Top. Often have PA support. I think the Jazz sounds good with about anything, but the fretless is a bit more complex. Budget will be around 600-900, depending on insurance settlement.
