    Hello, new member here. I'm a guitarist and have decided to double on bass. An elderly player suggested an amp (vintage equipment), but I've forgotten its name. I'll relay his description and perhaps someone will be able to tell me what it is.

    It's a small tube amp that unfolds somehow, so the tubes are exposed on the top of the amplifier.

    I apologize for the vague description. Does anyone here know what I'm describing?

  3. Most likely the Ampeg B15. There is one available in the Amps for sale forum with a pic.

    That's it, I'm sure. Thank you both for the quick responses. I had no idea it was so heavy!

    While I'm a huge fan of the B-15, I probably wouldn't recommend it to someone who wants to double on bass. Great sound, works well for me on gigs, but I don't play too loud, so I'd probably go with something with a little more power for the money.

    For the money.. Peavey TNT and TKO (USA MADE) are probably 2 of the bigger bargains until you decide you like bass.
