What amp setup for both EBG and EUB?

    I'm looking for suggestions for heads and cabs (or combos!) that can accurately produce a Double Bass sound as well as a solid, warm non-scooped Bass Guitar tone. No sweat, right?:smug:

    My Gear:
    I hope to someday soon get my hands on a Palatino EUB, and I currently play a pair of SX Jazzes, a 4-banger with Model J's and TI flats and a 5 string fretless. The 4 string is my main player.

    My Gig:
    I mainly play in a Church situation, along with an acoustic guitar, grand piano, 15 person choir in a 900 seat Church. I don't need tons of wattage or volume, since I've managed nicely with my 100W B100R.

    *side note: Anyone play DB or EUB with a B100R? Seems like it would be too middy for an accurate DB tone, but what do I know?*

    My Tone:
    For EBG I love a warm, meaty, punchy tone with warm and clear but not clanky highs.

    For EUB I just want it to sound like the quintessential DB tone, or as close to it as I can get with the Palatino. I see myself playing mostly with a bow (for the more traditional Baroque-style hymns). I've never played DB before, so I'll be starting completely fresh. (Any tips regarding EQing and whatnot would be greatly appreciated!)

    Whatever I choose, I'm definitely going to buy used.

    Fire Away!
