    What do YOu reccomend to Color my Amp Sound?
    I have a SWR Workingmans 12 amp and I play a Fender Jazz. When I bought my Fender Jazz I demoed it on a Fender Bassman amp. When playing it through my SWR I don't get the same tone. I have tried all my knobs on my bass to no avail. What kind of box or effect would you reccomend to get my SWR Amp sounding comparable to the Fender Bassman Amp? I don't know what they used to color that amp, but that's the Bass sound I want. Just can't afford to buy the amp to get it. Thanks.

    Those 2 amps are very different in every aspect.
    You'll never get the sound of one from the other.
    Still, I think a SanSamp BassDriver will do a pretty good impression.

    Maybe you could put your SWR up for trade.

    Unless that was the Bassman 400, most people in their right mind would rather have your SWR anyday. :D ;)
