Hi, my bands bassplayer has the SWR sm-400, Avatar Neo 410 cab and downtuned Gibson T-bird, but she´s (yes, female) not happy with the sound. It´s too sterile, and lacks the edge and growl. Also I think that it don´t fit well in our bands sound, we use downtuned and distorted guitars. We tried to find a perfect bass amp for us, and we went to a local music stores and tested Mesa-Boogies, Ampegs, even Marshalls tube basshead, and finally we found Ashdowns ABM EVO-500, that skyblue one, the most satisfying. After that we were practising short period, using borrowed gear, and the bass amplifier was a small Trace Elliot combo. We liked it so much that I started to search a TE head, with our Avatar cab. I found out that TE has a new product line now, and I want to ask is there anyone who has experiences about the new TE heads, AH 500-7 and AH 1000-12? Especially in comparison against Ashdowns EVO heads. And, we are adding an Avatar neo 212 cab to our bass rig, so question is: Ashdown or Trace Elliot head on top of the Avatar stack?
