I played through out the '70's and early '80's. Everything from prog to punk. A few years ago I picked up a guitar, then another, then a Squier Bass VI and then another guitar. A little over a month ago I treated myself to a G&L L1000. I had a very early production L1000 back in 1980 and thought, what the hell. Anyway, when I bought the Bass VI (and yes, I have it set up well with LaBella strings, shimmed, etc, etc.) I bought a little Ampeg Micro CL. I couldn't leave well enough along and installed a pair of EVM 10's in the cabinet. Not to shabby for a few hundred dollars. Well, now my good friend and brilliant carpenter is building me a Thiele TL806 with an EVM12 speaker, just like what my last setup was in the early '80's (I actually had two with an early GK amp). The question is, which Ampeg would work best with this cabinet. Don't criticize me, I want new. I already have an amazing little Ampeg Reverbojet from '68 for playing my guitars but I just want to plug and play with my bass amp. So, it boils down to the PF50T or the V4B RI (and no, an SVT is not in the cards). Now, I'm not likely to be playing live. Maybe, I'll have the occasional session with a guitarist friend or two but I doubt I'll be struggling to overpower a drummer. More often than not, I'll be practicing by myself and playing to recordings. As I'm typing this, my better senses tend towards the PF50T which will likely have more than enough power but I remember what the V4B sounded like when I played through it at GC and I'm not sure I can get that nasty, snarly tone out of the smaller amp. Based on what I hear from the Ampeg mavens on these boards, I'll know whether a longer road trip is in the cards for testing out the PF50T. TIA.
