    You’ve got a old P Bass, TI Jazz flats, Rotosound rounds, a 4-ohm Genz Benz Uber 410 rated up to 1000 watts, a budget that includes any of the amps mentioned, and you’re wearing sunglasses...go!

  3. I’ve recently converted to the “just give me an amp, any amp” mentally so I’ve voted the Streamliner as it has the same brand printed on it your cab!
    (Or go all tube for more jollies).

    I voted for the 4pro because:

    a) in true TB fashion I voted for what I own, not what would be best

    and

    b) sometimes the guitarist(s) needs to be reminded that even thinking about a volume war is going to end poorly

    If you'd included the Aguilar AG700 I'd have voted for that.

    And he’d wash it down afterwards with the realization that the Genzler is 2.67 ohm capable in case he wanted to add an Uber 210 to his rig for more volume or as a portable standalone for smaller gigs in service to his Mission From God, and together coming in (used) at around the upper limit of his budget....

    But would Donald like the tone? :cool:

  8. With the Genzler you can also use it as one of the best DI's made, sending your EQed greasy sound or just your Clean dry Bass to the front of house for when no cabs are allowed during your Mission From God, like I do.

    You can slap funk it up or do the Dunn Thump all with a knob twist.

    Now chew on your Rubber Biscuit and watch this.

    Hmmmmm.........OP posts a list of the most popular heavy hitters from the "Big Block" amp club.
    ..........Implies he has the budget for whatever TB may throw at him (including the obscenely pricey Carrot {formerly Carat} 999.......
    ........Asks what the Patron Saint of Wonder Bread would do.........What could go wrong? :thumbsup:




    Wait.....did I just see Carrie Fisher park around the corner? :wideyed:

    Don't know or care what Elwood would do, I would get the Streamliner. Why? Because I already did and that head was made to sound great through UBER cabs. Next on your list would be the Magellan 800, but since this is Talkbass I'm also going to throw out the Orange Terror Bass 500 and Mesa WD800 because...…...well like I said this is Talkbass and that is what we do.

    Beware spurned co-dependent lovers.

    Elwood can’t afford a Hiwatt or Simms-Watts. But apparently Twiggy is something from the UK within reach were it not for the fact he’s now
    happily hitched.

    If Andy touched it, I’m inclined to agree.

    Elwood doesn't play bass, he plays harp.

    A Shure bullet microphone and a Sears Sivertone guitar amp, 6 x 12" speakers.
