I am a guitarist turned bassist. I have been playing guitar for almost 15 years now and filled in here and there on bass. In the last year i have taken a more substantial interest in bass and now play in a band where i share bass duty with the vocalist. I have a couple solid state amps that are not great but they are loud. I want a full on bass rig though and tubes seem to be what does it for me. I have played ss mesaa, peaveys, fenders, hartke, aguilar, ampeg, eden, mark bass. Some sounded ok. Others sounded great. The first time i plugged into an svt at gc i knew i was done with ss amps but so far that single svt at The store is the only tube bass amp i have ever played. What do you guys love? Ampeg, traynor, fender, mesa, eden. New, used, vintage. Tell me about what you have, what you used to have. Why do you love it or hate it. What broke, and how much did it cost to fix? Btw i will be using the head that i buy with quite a variety of cabs. Fender 4x10, markbass 6x10, a vintage sunn 1x15 with a jbl.
