I am one of those beginners who is buying their first "real" amp. At first I was turned away from SWR because a fellow bassist said the speakers sounded Rough. My goal for an amp has been an amp that can do anything. All genres and such. I was looking at the super red head. Any info would be great appreciated. I was also wondering if swr can handle the upright sound. I also double on upright. And what is Rough Sounding? Thank You PS: any other ideas for bass amps around 1000$ (including stacks) would also be greatly appreciated.
