hi there, i've been playing bass for about 10 years now. i thought i had the right set up (trace va 400, peavy & swr triad with a warwick thumb bo 4) but now after playing with my own set in rehearsal for a month i found out that i'm not loud enough. i've been reading up about the eden and the ampeg and found that the svt 3 pro (i nearly bought it, hence the profile) gets a lot of bad reviews. most svt 3 pro owners r metal/rock/punk and so on. i'm really a funk/soul/r&b and a bit of rock kinda guy, but i play in a rockband now so it needs to be loud. any advise would be very welcome.
