I'm trying to get away from tubes and get into something lighter, but I really don't want to sacrifice too much sound to do so. For awhile I was using an Orange Terror Bass but it just wasn't working for me. I went back to using a Traynor YBA-1, which has a little less headroom than I'd like but is a great amp overall. Here are a couple of clips of my band: Yoma ()'s sounds on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free I play a P/J and would like something in the lightweight variety that can get me somewhere near that tone, but I really have no direction. Whenever I look into finding a "tubelike" lightweight amp, I typically find that what people like about tubes may not be the same as me, and therefore their recommendations just don't work. So, if anyone can help me with those cheesy basement recordings in mind, that would be great! I'm not saying that those recordings contain my ideal, perfect sound, but they definitely get in the vicinity and sum up around what I would like.
