I hated it. Whoa. Just kidding! It was soooo awesome guys, seriously. I've never had so much fun playing bass before, and I can't believe I waited until now. Now I know why people play tube amps, because you get eargasms. My band opened for Zuckerbaby (they're back!) last night at the Hifi for their official comeback show, and their bassist Marcus asked me if I wanted to use his rig. I nearly pissed myself. I knew nothing about real tube SVTs (I play a SS SVT350), but was familiar with the Ampeg interface, so I just dialed in my usual tone using the 3 band EQ (bypassing the 9 band EQ) and WHAM! Instant sore cheeks from smiling action. Every note would envelope me like a pillow, so warmly overdriven but still crystal clear. I almost forgot to sing some of my harmonies because I was so focused on how good the tone was. His rig consisted of an SVT4-PRO into SVT-210 and 115 cabs (I can't even imagine what the vintage heads sound like). It's one of those things that you can tell almost instantaneously how it'll change your outlook on everything - the way you play, the gear you buy, the music you write.. whoosh. As of that moment I decided that I'd go tube from now on. There's no other way really. I don't know what kind of gear I'll get, but atleast now I've tried tube and know that's the way to go.
