Hi everyone, I recently just sold my Kustom KXB500. It wasn't exactly the sound I was looking for. Too sterile, I felt like I needed to have a compressor in front of it in order to get an acceptable tone. I've decided that I like the Peavey stack that I use with my school's jazz band. It's nice and warm and I feel like I don't need to put a compressor in front of it. I think it's a Peavey Mark IV. I've got a few questions though. Are the old (70s-80s) Peavey bass series heads considered strictly budget heads? I know it's kind of a stupid thing to worry about, as at the end of the day all that really matters is tone, but I want something that I know in my own mind is good quality, without even hearing it, if that makes sense. Also, will it sound good through my Ampeg 410HLF? There's nothing wrong with the cabinet, but I'm not sure if it'd be better with a Peavey cabinet. What other old heads should I look out for? I don't care if they are Peavey or really any other brand (I do like the look of a big head with black tolex though as it matches my cabinet). It'd be neat to have something with tubes to get some natural compression and drive, but I'm not really that picky. I'm looking for something that can be had for relatively cheap, which is why I brought up those old Peavey heads in the first place. Thanks a lot!
