For all you guitar players, Favorite bass amp?

I always will love the sound of thundering Ampeg SVT stacks!

 

Most bass players I've been in bands with played Ampeg SVT's and I just love that tone.

 

I've heard some good Peavey & Hartke too, but never liked the GK stuff, it always sounded weak and thin to me.

Then again, it could have been the guy's settings.

Ampeg SVTAV Anniversary Bass Amplifier. Has to be in blue, which I do not think they make anymore. My old bass player had one. Played a Frankenstein 70s P-bass with flat wounds through it using a 1x15 cab. Talk about warm & rich bass. Volume wise this sucker could keep up with an drummer.

I just have to add that I'm kind of biased.

 

I'm stuck on the notion that bass is best when the instrument is a Fender (my fav is the Fender Jazz, although the PJ is nice) and the bass amplification should be Ampeg.

 

I know there is lots of other great stuff, but it's like flash association that's drilled in my subconscious.

 

Bass = Fender & Ampeg

Guitar = Gibson and Marshall

I started on Bass at 16, still write Bass First when I write (which isn't enough).

 

SWR 210c is a good one

 

Can't miss with Galien Kruger, either.

 

If I were to land a Bass Playing Gig, I'd run a Kruger Head into a 4x10 Cab and a 15" Sub Woofer.
