Has Ampeg ever made any solid-state preamps? I'd love to go pre/power with an ampeg preamp but I really don't want to deal with tubes. I don't think tube sound is THAT much better than SS anyways (please dont hurt me). Anyone besides me think Ampeg should sell... say... the preamp to the B-4R? I have this dream where I send them an email saying they should sell the B-4R preamp for like... $300 and then they're like "what a great idea!" and they do it and I buy it and I'm a happy lil bassist.
