I thought I would re-open this thread as Uncle Sam is making his deposit Friday, and I have a new bass as well. I am in the process of making the decision on my new rig, and I thought I would get the opinions of my brotherhood o' BASS. Here are the specs of my bass: Skjold Custom Exotic 5 string Swamp Ash body with Maple & Wenge laminates & Wenge top/back Skjold pre Skjold pups Maple/Purpleheart/Bubinga neck (I think) w/ Bloodwood fingerboard I play mostly praise & worship, but am a huge fan of the fusion jass realm dominated by, among others, Alain Caron & Matthew Garrison. So I would like an amp that will serve me well in both areas. I am after the typical hifi sound, but also like a nice growl in the midrange. Clear & articulate lows are also something I'm after. I know I'm picky, but with the price of these rigs I should be able to get there (I think).
