Hi there! Yeah, new guy. I've been messing around with guitars forever and recently came to the conclusion that I may be more of a bass man. I pretty much just play for fun but I have a drummer friend that I'd like to jam around with. So...I'm looking for a decent set up, head and cab(s) that would work well as an apartment practice amp but then take out and open up for a jam. I've been looking at tube heads because, as a guitar player, tubes have been ingrained in me. But I'm willing to listen to alternatives if they can get that same kind of warmth. Throw the ideas out! I'll take what you've got!
