A while back, i was quite happy with my setup, then i wanted a switchable overdrive in the whole thing. I would have liked two sounds, a mild overdrive and full out distortion and looked for a pedal to do both, but found none to my liking. So i bought the smallest pedalboard i could find and rigged it with OD, Distortion and Tuner. Then a comp. And then GAS hit. Before i realized what had happened, i needed to buy cables with smaller jacks so i could fit pedal #13 on my board which matched my bass-gigbag in weight. Now i have the struggle to get the sounds i want because i play different basses in different bands and it's hard to remember every setting of every pedal for every bass for two different amps and i don't want to arrive half an hour early to every rehearsal to get it dialed in. Those of you who read this far might ask themselves why i am talking about pedals when i'm posting a thread to the amps section. My thoughts were as follows: I feel that with the use of many pedals, i loose the ability to really use my active basses, because i have to keep them at the same settings. If i mess with the knobs on the basses, the response from the pedals becomes different and that is often a problem. But many things i do with the pedalboard can be done in a slightly less fancy way just by changing the EQ on the bass and the way i play. So if i had an amp with two channels i could ditch the pedalboard entirely and use the head for overdrive. The only thing i'd really miss would be the tuner and its mute function, but if the head had an output for a tuner and a mute footswitch along with the channel selection, i could be fine. If i sold off one or two heads and most of my pedals, i'd be able to fund something solid. I would like tubes, but i would hate to carry 40kg twice a week to rehearsal and back. At the moment, my smallest setup is a barefaced one10 with a H&K Tubemeister 18 head and my biggest is an aguilar stack, Tonehammer500 with 2 GS212 cabs. While i'm at it, i might as well sell off the aggie cabs and get more barefaceds - i'm thinking of a second one10 and a four10. So is there such a thing as a tube head that's an easy carry, looks good on a single one10 and offers two channels with nice overdrive and mute switch?
