It's me again.

...and the winner is AMPEG B-100R.... It sounds best with my bass. Warmly, clearly and punchy :)
EQ is easy and controlable unlike AMPEG BA-115 or HARTKE.

BA-115 looks like a tank and IS a tank (weight!!!)
I failed to get sound I wannted in any "style" and EQ combination! I didn't start to sound well after number of atempts...

HARTKE seems to be designed for passive pickups only. It starts to distort at volume set to 5 and above when active EMP PJ are used. And do not try to set LOW to much too. It's good for slapping but not for '70-71 "Black Sabbath" type of sound.
