Many bass players as well as guitar players suffer from small amp syndrome. What is small amp syndrome you ask? It's when you haven't gigged in a while and you just have been using your practice amp to keep your chops up, when suddenly one day you decide that a certain bass in particular sounds like crap. In the past you were crazy about it but now you don't think it's that good. Wait! Don't go trade it in yet. Fire up your BIG RIG, plug that bass in and let her rip! Many times from constantly using a practice amp we think certain basses suck. But it is not because of the bass' limitations it is the limitations of the amp. Plugging that certain bass into a substantial amp will make you see things differently. Lets face it, not all basses sound like a Stingray, American Jazz Deluxe, or a Smith. Even these basses however won't sound to their potential through a practice amp. It's those $300 to $400 basses that need a big rig to shine with all their glory. So next time before you think it's junk, plug it in the BIG RIG!
