    I LOVE my MB10!! Been using it for rehearsals lately sitting on my Avatar SB12. Sound is MINT! :bassist:

    I was using it by itself as a practice amp but it shakes my walls and I live in a condo. The headphone tone is mint also.

    Check out the little Ampeg BA108.

    It sells for under $100.00 and it sounds damned good! I have been trying to find a larger amp for more volume for recording, and damned if this little Ampeg has sounded better than all of these larger, more powerful and more expensive amps I have purchased and returned so far!

    My latest larger amp I bought is a Fender Rumble 75. I am still on the fence whether I am going to keep it or not. I am having to crank the treble and midrange up to nearly full to get the same tone the little 108 can get with all the tones set to neutral. The Fender has more volume, but since you made a point that you are more interested in tone than volume, I thought I would mention the 108.

    The source is a 2013 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass.
