Hey all. For a while I was using a Sansamp onstage, plugged straight into the FX return socket on my Ashdown head. Was mighty fine, too. I then got interested in levelling out my strings using compression and started using a Humphrey modded CS-3 conventionally through the Ashdown. It's proved a great combination and I've stuck with it these last 18 months or so. It's only when clearing out my gear bag that I even noticed the Sansamp and I began to think that effectively I got very nice sound playing that through a budget power amp (which is all I assume goes on in an amp after FX return ... is that right?). Queston is - I've seen power amps out there in hi-fi land, but do such beasts exist for basses? I mean, I've seriously thought that if/when the Ashdown eventually fries I might try to get it converted to that purpose anyway.
