for you bass/guitar players on here, my bassist needs help. lets say money isnt a factor, give me some great bass amps. tube amps. but dont go over lets say like 1.5k like i know of the marshall super bass, ampegs, vintage ones i know of but what else? he plays rock.

go with the fender 59 bassman good guitar and bass amp just a all around monster. Through in all seriousness i would go for solid-state bass amp i don't see the need for a tubed bass amp unless you distort your bass like a guitar(personal opinion but i hate that). that and they would be more stable.

the 59 Bassman did go around 1,300$ but with the fender jacks ups who knows the cost know ***s. but on the bright side my tele now cost 1,500 and i paid 450 for it new. haha i ** the system i win!!!! living in the northeast and shopping for clearance teles is the way to go.

this is my opinion case i guess is comes done to your bass players liking of different timbres, but for me i like a nice clean solid bass punchy sound that can easily cut through. and to me that screams solid-state but then again I'm no contra-bass guy and your friends needs might and will not be mine.

that and i would imagine a low frequency would mess with the tubes but there i have no experience with(only played/mess with solid-state)

the fender bassman is a great amp though that and you like Marshall right? while there amp are modded bassmans

my bassist would be using clean always no distortion. if he ws to get a solid state id have to be one of the best b/c tone wise their just inferior.

you need to stop perceiving with your mind and start listening. there is a reason why tubes are still being using in amp tech why analog and why, why ,why. there is always a reason to the madness. even if you can concisely see it.

my pc messed up, so this post is delayed but my point was proven any way

My bass player uses SWR. Personally I love the sound of them, very diverse. you can find some real good deals on them as well. Hartke and Genz-Benz make some good amps too. You can find tube solid state hybrids.

i got a mid 70's Fender Bassman Ten for my guitar and i plug in basses every now and then and it sounds pretty badass. its a very classic rock sound and you can probably find one for around a grand and thier always on ebay. if you got any questions about it, i got one sitting in my room, ill tell you anything you want to know.

Bass players prefer Solid State amps to tube amps, as they give a more reliable sound.
