Hello! I am a studio owner who occasionally plays bass, and I record other players regularly. I am adding a bass amp for monitoring purposes, but I'd like something with FX just for jamming, fun, and possible use in recording. Some of the amp / cab models seem to be as good as some of the plugins I use after the fact, as well. Also, it seems like hearing some of that effected / modeled sound appears to have a positive effect on the player while laying the track, vs plugging in direct and adding “tone” later, even if I also record a dry take and change the tone in mixing. I feel like 40 - 50 watts seems to be loud enough. The fender rumble was recommended by a few friends as a low cost, decent amp. The studio version looks fun, but I wonder if the onboard FX are as good, better, worse, etc., than a low cost pedal? The studio model is 150$ more than the plain 40 watt amp, so I'm wondering what's the best multi FX in that price range? OR, what would you suggest as the best way to spend 350-400$ for an amp and possibly some FX? I'd "like" a USB port for direct digital recording, but it’s not critical. I have a sans amp bddi, Radial JDI, and nice preamps for direct recording already, and a wide variety of mics, for cabs or speakers. Thanks for your advice!
