    Truth is that without all the "Gear of the Week" TBers the manufacturers wouldn't be able to innovate new stuff ;) .

    I ordered an Ampeg PF800 today as an alternative to my TC and GK amps. What's a 'Mesa'?

    Right now, the B|Amp is enjoying "flavor-of-the-week" status. It'll be there for a while, I think.

    Don't forget that Kustom amp from last year. I think the poster who started that thread saying it was the best amp ever later sold it.:D

    None of this matters anyway. All of these companies will probably go out of business or at least quit making bass amps once the Darkglass amps hit the market! My new Ampeg might hold me over until those come out...then BAM! Sell everything and go all Darkglass. Got it all planned out!

    You doin ok? ;)

    I dont know. I just got one and i feel that i provided some pretty objective feedback in the main thread last night about my first experience using it with my band. Its a nice amp for sure. Greatest thing ever it isnt. No need to follow up hype with other kinds of hype. Keep it real fellow bassists! :D

    Without TalkBass, our tastes wouldn't change as much. It's a community thing to try what others are talking about.

    I think of you went to a store and tried every amp / cab combo you could, pick some faves, then tried stuff every year, you might find that you like what you like and not be tempted to change things as much.

    That said, I like trying new things, but find that I already have what I need.
