OK, so I have been playing for a year and a half. I am in a band that I love and were starting to get some gigs. The gigs have been well received and were feeling pretty good about that. We play rock and roll. About 50-50 originals to covers. The covers are Grateful Dead, Neil Young, The Band, etc. I have a modded Mexi P-bass that I love and sounds really good with DiMarzio pups and Chromes. I am playing thru a Fender Bassman TV Duo-Ten and with effects (Tech 21 VT bass and Boss Bass Chorus only). Im a big fan of flats with the VT for the old-school gooey tube sound. I had a G&L JB that I recently sold here because I could never match the sound in my head and couldnt get right with the Jazz. Im a P-bass guy for sure. I love that low-mid punch! The Bassman TV has been loud enough (300 watts) and sounds really good for the gigs we have had so far and for recordings. I think its powerful enough to carry me through most small to medium bar gigs. So I have this money ($1000) that I could go buy a brand new 2008 Fender P-bass MIA (been sitting there because of the color I guess-charcoal mist) that I have played a lot in the shop and I know its a great one. Or I could sell the Bassman and pool the money and get a pro-rig now in anticipation of bigger gigs between now and February. I am getting a bonus in February that would cover a new MIA P-bass if I want one then. The head/cab I'm looking at is the TC Electronics RH450 with a good 410 or 212 (Genz Benz or Ashdown or similar). So, what do you suggest I do?
