hello bassists we are the best !!! I have a warwick thumb bass 4 strings and i need a light combo between 150W and 300W with powerful sounds. At first i planned to buy a trace elliot 712 or 715 gp7 130W or 150W but only the ah300-12 (gp12) 300W have a preamp solid/valve. The only problem it's the price : more than $1200. So i tried the ROLAND DB500 160W that seems to have great sounds. Some people told me to buy an EBS , others told me to go for an ashdown, hartke 2115 or 2155, warwick cl-4, carvin tiltback 2x10", or eden time traveller or nemesis nc-210p, nc112. You must have tried some of these amps, which one would you buy if you were me. Thank you all for your opinions.
