    Am I nuts if I sell my Ashdown ABM300 and buy an Aguilar 659 preamp and a used Mesa Boogie 295 (2x90W) all tube poweramp? Do you think it would sound good? The weight is not a problem.:cool:

    Yep... Nuts

    The 295 is great for G**tar but not so hot for bass.

    Why?
    I may go with a preamp from Ashdown. Love Ashdown but GAS you know. Id like to try something new.
    But is that poweramp a stupid idea? Why is that?:confused:
     
  4. Geeze - I just bought an Ashdown!!!!! You're getting shot of one????

    It's like this - if it ain't broke, why fix it!!!!:confused:

    that's a guitar poweramp there son. and we don't like their kind mingling in with our kind.



    if you want tube power, go with a mesa 400+ or a strategy 400, or even some older ampeg stuff.
