my bassist has an ampeg B2-R head and a 1X15 classic cab. he is wanting to get a good solid punk bass sound out of it. somewhat on the mid range side of things with clarity to make hot bass licks shine through. the EQ bands are (+/- 12dB): 40, 80, 150, 300, 600, 900, 2k, 5k, 8k and hes running a fender P bass 4 string through it (passive). also wondering what a good head would be to run a gibson SG through that would serve for light punk crunch, solid emo type (like finch), and that can be scooped and tweaked for metal. im planning on running 1 or 2 boss pedals through it (pre and post) to help shape the tone coming out of the cab. something that would complement the p90s and capture their 'sweet spot' and the hard edge of the SG, but is pretty felxible. a boogie would be good for metal, but im thinking if i go more along the lines of the more flexible marshall heads i might be better off. crate also has blue voodoo, how does it compare (if it isnt half bad it is pretty cheap. are there any marshall heads that can go from Finch to In Flames and such. only looking at around 100W tube amps, i would prefer a half stack but i would seriously consider a combo amp too. would like to use it for mostly live, but miking it with a 57 beta would be nice too.
