I am looking for a bass rig for my studio - rehearsal space. Primary importance is a head that would be good for recording with, rehearsals are secondary, although the band is loud. I have $600 or so to drop on the head. I have a 5-string lefty Schecter Studio bass with active EMG pickups. I posted earlier about a preowned Eden Metro combo, which sounded really nice but was priced too high, but I have since found a new Eden 2X10 cab for $500 and am focusing on choosing a head now. The Eden heads seem to have really good compression built in, and some versatile EQ options. But I also like the idea of a lightweight head I can carry as a back up to my Focus 2R for guitar gigs, so I am looking at the Markbass LM II and some of the GenzBenz Shuttle heads. Has anyone had good results going direct out of any particular head? I record into a Mac using an Apogee Duet interface into Logic. I would probably mic the cab as well. I am something of a newbie (read, primarily a gui****), so would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
