Just stumbled across the forum and thought I'd join in. I just started to play bass again after 20 years of being a responsible person. I decided that sucked. So, I went out and bought a bass, Washborn T24, which actually plays pretty good for a cheaper bass. Then of course I needed an amp. I went to the local place and came home with a Ampeg BR2 head, Hartke 210XL, and an Ampeg SVT-15. I was after the Hartke 115B XL, but it was out of stock, so I thought I'd try the Ampeg. I'm not good at waiting. Now, I have "should I have waited on the Hartke" blues. The Ampeg 15 does sound good paired with the 2 10"s the hartke cab has, but would the Hartke 15 sound better? I have 30 days to decide. I'm just looking for opinions. I'm really rusty on bass, so I can't reproduce the sounds I'm after, but I like a crisp bass sound with punch.
