  1. Hi Steve if you play metal and punk you won’t do much better than your orange terror bass, I had one of the early models and it died on me a few times , I think there was a design flaw with the first model. I’d go for the mk2 for that money I think they ironed out all the potential issue. To get an all tube head as loud as an orange terror bass you’re looking at an SVT . I don’t think a 100w valve head will get you there . That’s just my tuppence worth
  2. A good few years ago I had a Bugera BVV3000, basically a 300w SVT clone, it sounded great and was thunderously loud, was very cheap as I recall . I’m not sure what happened to these in the wild and whether they’re still around, But I couldn’t fault the amp at all …apart from being an obviously cheesy knock-off
  3. If you see a Carlsbro 100 top around grab one. They’re usually cheap and sound great with bass.
  4. They are loud but it’s still just 100w. the eq is practically non existent, so if don’t like the tone you’re kinda stuck. There are mods that can be done but I’m happy enough with it as is.
  5. https://www.essemusic.it/en/used/bass-heads/peavey-tour-vb-2-head-made-in-usa-/ supposed to be decent heads .
  6. Hi Steve there’s a Peavey 225w head on reverb for €650, in fact I saw the same one for €590 on the actual shop site
  7. The last gig I played I traveled in guitarists Nissan note, a compact hatchback with 2 basses , 2 electric guitars an Ashdown Head, a 210, a guitar combo , an acoustic, a power amp , 2 effects racks and various leads , guitar stands etc, with no issue at all and the front seats as normal . Just don’t bring flight cases . A decent gigbag should do ,just be careful, put the guitars in last.
  8. It’s a thing to consider when buying a cab. I really do think 2x10 is the best all round cab in a squeeze where “fitability” in an average car boot is definitely a factor. Not every 1x15 will fit in a boot.
  9. I had a moment of madness and put one of my valve amps up for sale over the weekend, luckily I had a change of heart 🥵
  10. I actually considered an estate , simply so I could buy an 810 😂
  11. The thing about these valve amps is that they can all have little nuances and the only way to really know your amp is to experiment and see what works . It took me ages to get to grips with my Ashdown CTM100
  12. If you want a clean sound turn the gain down and turn up the volume , that’ll drive the power valves more. if you want the sound to have a crunch at lower volumes keep the master low and crank the gain. You have more control over the bass/mid/treble with the gain control. The volume knob just turns up and down the power valve output . You can actually just use the power values by plugging into the effects loop return . It sounds pretty flat
