Ok, so I have finally decided to join the upper group of bassists and step up my bass rig to a 410 and a 115. I know some of you may be thinking by now, oh god, not another one of these, well deal with it. Anyways, I was hoping to get some suggestions on what brands and models to try out. I play mostly rock/alternative/punk, and I usually switch between a smooth and bottom end tone to a more kinda pick tone. I was hoping not to spend a whole lot over $1500. My main choices so far are Aguilar, Ampeg, Ashdown, and SWR. So far I have only really tried the Ashdown, and I loved how it handled my B string. I am yet to really try the others, but I am going this weekend to try them out, so I was hoping to get some suggestions soon.
