Is it possible to bypass a the power amp in my HA-3500 bass head? For example if I were to buy a tube power amp, how difficult would it be to connect the outboard power amp to my tube pre in my head? Thanks

Does it have an effects loop?

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

I believe so. Also, where can I find a tube power amp? I've looked and haven't found anything yet.

With bass they are pretty rare if non existent. Old ampegs may have been tube all the way through.

i think the reason they are so rare is imagine changing 8-10 tubes at a time?

I think carvin makes some all tube rack mount power amps (no preamp) look on their website. I have no clue about quality though.

I only saw one on Carvin's site and it was a bit more then I wanted to spend, then again I forgot how expensive tube amplification can be. Oh well, maybe I'll just invest in a new head, something a little more..."tubey"
