    Just picked up a used Nemisis-600. It is wonderful compared to my Crate B80XL. I have peavy 2x10 and intend to pick up a 1x15. It's my dream set up. I would go with the nemisis.

    We have a Firebass at my school, and paired with a 4x10 it really rocks. Great amp with a good tone (think Peavey Max). A fair amount of flexibility with the sound, also. I admit I have not used the Nemesis, but I assume it too is a good amp.

    I saw a local band whose bass player was playing a Ken Smith through a Firebass and a Peavey 1x15 and an Ampeg 1x15. Great sound. Dancehallclasher has a Firebass and I believe he likes it a lot. Can't comment on the Nemesis as I've never even seen one.
