    I'm in the market for a new amp right now. Just started some serious gigging again and there are just far too many choices. I was hoping that some of you could give me some input. I play a lot of funk (slap and finger), fusion, rock, etc...Basically, I play in a jam band. I play on a fender bassman 200 right now and it's just not enough. I'm looking at the SWR 8004 and the GK 1001RB. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks fellas

    If you like solid state I'd go with GK. They seem to be the best tone and power for the buck.

    Tube is a nice sound but reliability can be a problem...GK is what i've been leaning towards.
