Finally a forum to ask other bass players what they think!! I'm a current 5 String bass w/ an onboard (Aguilar) amp playing through a (Tired) Trace Elliot 250AH / 4-10 cab and would like to upgrade to some new equipment that handles the the low B better. I'm not much of a pop and slap guy and like more of the big balls low end kinda sound without getting all muddy. I've been looking at SWR and Eden and someone suggested Carvin. I'm not familiar with Carvin sound nor they're quality and I was hoping someone could give me some constructive thoughts on these choices and perhaps suggest a few thoughts as well. I attended the 2001 NAMM show, but was so overwhelmed with all the gear, I thought my head would explode! Anyways, I just would just like to get a big sound without having to hire a road crew to help me from show to show. Thanks to all who comment! Keep the Bottom End!
