ok guys. As generic of a topic as this is I have a big dilemma. If you check my sig, you will see that I am a (proud) owner of Aguilar amps. They sound great and all but yesterday I tried to hook up a fender bassman tube clone. Wow! I couldn't believe the sound I was getting. Barefaced big twin 2 has a renown of being a cab that is able to pump monstrous lows, that are sometimes even hard to control. But with the clone, every low note has a clear and round, veery warm low end that doesn't extend over the limits. What surprised me even more is that every note I played, even on higher registers is still meaty and has a great low mid presence and just keeps on going and seamlessly blends with the low notes with zero volume difference. My aguilar amps work great as well but there was an obvious and immediate difference in the sound the moment I plugged in. I immediately felt groovier and a better bass player. Should I go after an all tube amp? I never played a solidstate with a similar warmth and meat to the sound and I am starting to think I never will. The bassman clone was 40w and I couldn't believe how loud it actually was. The size of these amps is bugging me though.
