Okay guys so after reading the forums for years I created a login. My first post so go easy on me. I have been playing bass for over 30 years in rock bands. Until recently I was using a BG250 210 combo. I play in a 5 piece group. Singer, 2 guitars, drummer and myself. It was a great little combo but I was maxing it out constantly. Gain just under clip then volume to 3-4 o'clock. So I needed a bit more overall volume. I decided on 2 x 210 Hartke hydrive HD's. Wanted the vertical stack thing. I also picked up a Warwick LWA500 head. This is where I think I went wrong. The head is very underwhelming. It seems to clip early on the knob (12 o"clock), I then need the volume knob at almost max just to get to where I feel I was with the old combo. Tried an array of different basses (all passive). So I am going to get a new head with more room. I was thinking the BH800. So my question is how much more can I expect from the head? My local store will only bring one in if I order it for purchase. Youtube always has people playing low volume, and slapping 900 miles per hour. No useful to me. I am not looking for a bunch of brand suggestions just feedback on what to expect with the BH800 and 2x 210 stack? Thanks - fire away!
