Can I get a hand here? I've been shopping for a bass head, but the more I look, the more confused I get. I've got an SWR Baby Blue II which I really like for practices, but it doesn't get loud enough for the stage. I would like to get a head and cabinet (or maybe just a bigger combo amp?) for those times when more oomph is required. I've been looking at Hartke, Ampeg, SWR, Gallien-Krueger, Carvin, Fender, etc. Are there real differences between heads, or should I be looking more at watts per dollar and the features that I want? What do you use and/or recommend? Something with a real world price tag; no megabuck super amps, please. (The spirit is willing, but the wallet is weak.) What sounds good, keeps working and costs less than a used car? Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
