    My current amp is a Yorkville XM 100. It was pretty inexpensive and it sounds good. A local dealer has an Eden CXC 110 at a reasonable price and he would take my Yorkville on a trade in. I would eventually get the bass extension cabinet if I got the CXC 110. The catch is that I know the Eden has many more features and sounds warmer, but I really like the bite of my transistory sounding Yorkville. I don't play large gigs and probably won't need the Eden's muscle any time soon. Should I switch amps or should I just get a bass or two more?

    I'd play around a little more with the Eden first - I'll bet you can find your tone in there somewhere!

    bassicinstinct, I think you might be right. I really like the Eden but I am happy with my Yorkville. If I ever gig regularly that would change, but I don't see me playing alot any time soon.
