You're not going to get a decent sound out of a small practice amp like that. The speaker just isn't large enough, and TBs have a high output that tends to overwhelm small amps.

Try cranking the bass and treble while cutting the mids. Mids tend to honk-ify everything, and many people automatically assume you cut treble on bass.

Give it a shot! If it still sounds bad, maybe it is indeed time to upgrade.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

they can honky if you use super hi-mids, use your lowmids by getting a amp with a Graphic EQ. they assume you have cut treble because they cant get a distinct sound from the amp becuase its a dead tone
