    So im thinking of buying a summit audio TLA_50
    it works great on bass, but it is a tube leveling amplifier, and mainly a compressor.
    Would this be fine- just this amp and a cab to play live? would i be enough?

    Not exactly sure on your question - you intending to use it as a "stomp box" or as a front-end/preamp into a power amp? I have used mine in the studio, never played live with it. I love it as it a gentle compressor. I run it at fairly low ratio (2:1 or 3:1) and it gives a nice warm round tone. In the studio I usually used a Summit TD-100 preamp into the TLA-50, then direct into the board.

    :eek: nobody will be able to hear you... :crying: ... the TLA has no power amp section to drive a speaker cab... :meh:

    in order to make this work, combine the TD100 with the TLA50 in rack space and add a nice power amp to go from
    :bawl: to :confused: to :bassist: to :D

    :p :bag: :D
