Hey all, i'm relatively new to playing bass, and i've decided to get a better head. right now, i'm playing out of a Hartke HA5500, which i really don't like, but i got for a decent price. i just can't get the tone that i want out of it. it's 500 watts. recently, i checked out this orange or120 Overdrive guitar head, and i LOVE the tone out of it through my cab, with my bass. but coming from a 500w bass head to a 120w guitar head kind of worries me. i read about the difference in tube and solid state and such, but i wanted to know what some of your opinions are on this. would that orange tube head be able to compete with a full band around me? should i just go with a new solid state head? help please! thanks!
