what kind of amp do you use?

Recommended Posts

Main amp is the V-Type combo, so that would be a hybrid. I guess the 12-band is almost a hybrid (same theory as john_the_bass!). Oooh, recording with both tomorrow:

V-Type - gonna be mixing the DI'd pre-EQ signal with a mic'd signal, wohoo!
12-band - DI post EQ

Well, that's my little egg of a theory anyway

I'm currently using an Ampeg SVT3PRO containing 5 pre amp valves and a solid state power amp. This is a big sound. Goes deep and low with a lot of zing.

Currently...

Bass Pod XT Pro as my pre-amp into a Carlsbro 600 Watt Power Amp. However the Carlsbro amp is going to be gone soon in favour of something digital and light.

BTW anyone making digital power amps that take an ABS/EBU digital in?

Currently using an SWR WorkingPro (solid state) but that excellent chap Dave Hall is currently building me a VT2-Dual-Bass rack mount unit :) so I've voted other.

Markbass amps and cabs. Owned a couple of valve amps in the past, mesa 400+ and bassman 135. The bassman was nice but it kept blowing up and the boogie was just overkill!

And I bet the bottom channel is your clean one, seeing as that drive is so damn low. :)[/quote]


hehe, the top one was the "clean" one, i used to use these settings with my p bass, the channels are voiced differently and the top one sounds alot fatter than the bottom one, and if i remember correctly the bottom has more gain available (havent fiddled with it for a while) and i used to switch it in for added dist.

it was never clean though, but it CAN do clean.
