i hate super clean amps, i dont wont a studio monitor
i am really looking for a solid state amp
How about this?....
I'll second the Thunderfunk recommendation!
aguilar's? has the overdrive to add some grit.
but i love how my iAMP800 has an almost tubey deep flavor. you might thinks its a bit too clean, tho.
Try the Tech21 Landmark 300 or 600....
Lots of great clear tones, thunderous low end and plenty of grind/growl should you need it....
I played out again with the Thunderfunk last night (5th gig). It was in large church sanctuary (seats 1,000) and the Thunderfunk sounded awesome! I had several people come up after the concert and compliment the bass sound. The TF is absolutely the best sounding amp I've ever played through and in 30+ years I've played through quite a few. You really need to check one out if you're in the market for a new amp. Sounds awesome with my fretted and fretless basses. I just can't get a bad sound out of it! To top it off the amp weighs only 15 lbs!
I recommend a rack rig consisting of the SansAmp RBI and a power amp. That'll give a lot of coloration and grit! And the RBI is fairly inexpensive.
it's funny that you equate tube amps with super clean - some ss amps are a lot sqeakier than the tube amps
i'll have to say the sans amp probably has the most character of the solid state units
i've even used their di pedal straight into my stewart 2.1 and dug the tone
You might want to check out Gallien-Krueger.
They have a little color to their tone and you can add as much grit as you like.
I have a 700RBII and it sounds great!
