I just got myself a Roland DB-700 150 bass amp and i am well impressed. It has blow away any Trace Elliot amps and you can get any style of sound that you need. It has a very warm feeling off it under the tube drive setting and it has the best chorus i have heard. From this you can achieve a lot of special sounds for what you need and with the use of pedals you can switch rapidly. My favourite has to be a Double Bass esque effect for my lowly westfield bass but thru this it sounds good. So all i need is a new neck, some laney actives picks and a wee preamp for my bass then i shall rule. But seriously get up to session music (i recommend them) and try one
its all good.
