    here is my predicament. I am playing in a gigging original band. I have recently switched to bass from rhythm guitar. I have a small fender combo and a fender 410 cab and a Hartke 210 cab and a fender mb 1200 power amp. The combo is too small to use outside of band practice and thus the need for an actual amp to pair with my 410 and 210. I am looking at a GK rb700 or such. I am playing a 50's reissue mim P-bass and love the punchy tone i get with it, but i need more tone shaping and power since our guitarist plays two hotrod deluxes in stereo.

    fwiw the ampeg 610hlf is a great cab.

    i was playing my svt 4 pro through a crappy acoustic cab for a few shows and it made me want to sell the head. brought my 610 and it was like night and day. now i don't want to sell it.

    anyway, with all of that being said. the eden wt550 sounds awesome. true bass guitar/finger tone. WHEN i'm no longer playing in hardcore/punk bands, and it's time to downsize my rig, that is what I will be purchasing. along with 2 210 eden cabs.

    just get a decent preamp to go with the power amp.

    like a sans amp rbi or an ampeg svt pre.

    then get one of those two preamps. they both do the tube tone pretty well.
