Now, I'm in a psychadelic metal band ... And my bassist needs a new amp (he's got one of those fender rumbles right now ) so I'm helping him look round for one... something preety loud that can cut through 2 guitars and a drummer, and has a lot of low end and good thick mids.... I think he's looking for a john entwistle/lemmy-ish tone...
Bass forum might know better... I hear good things about Ashdown and Ampeg though.
As far as Ashdown, maybe a MAG?
If I were you, I'd be looking for a used GK RB series amp, and an Avatar cab.
and we cant go ashdown, acoustic, or carvin... no dealers near and he has to try stuff out
^That sucks... Those are all good brands.
try ampeg, thats what our bassist uses and its pretty good
