: This amp thing is killing me..i'm lookin to invest some more dough on bass stuff(like we all don't spend every spare penny on it, anyway)
: What do you all prefer amp wise..
: Trace Elliot?
: Please! Lets get some input here!
The nicest amp setup I could afford was a Hartke, consisting in a 3500 head atop 1x15 plus 1x40 cabinets. I tried an SWR once and the sound was very sweet indeed. Trace are great, too, but for whichever reason, they are a lot more expensive in my area (Buenos Aires, Argentina) than Hartkes, so I went off wirth them.
For the money, it's an excellent setup. I've owned it for a good six years now, used it in many situations and contexts, in clubs and outdoors, and it never failed on me. Power is enough for any situation and the sound is pretty good, too. The typical Hartke sound is one with a very characteristic hi end bite, but the lows remain very tight and focussed as well.
Hope this helped,
