    Roland Bass Cube 100. Suits the limited amount of bass work I do myself, and works fine with my bass-playing partner using it for our duo gigs. Maybe pro guys wouldn't consider it a serious bass amp, but it certainly isn't a toy either.

    I have a Hartke bass rig with a hybrid preamp. I can blend the tube with SS, sounds great with a little tube warmth.

    I have one of those too. It's my back up.

    My main bass amp is SS: Markbass Little Mark II.

    Marshall MB b150, with a tube preamp. It's ok, but not quite loud enough for gigs. I had to use an external 4x10.

    I hear that. I'm moving from a 500 watt class D head to a 50 watt Ampeg tube head.

    If it sounds good it is good.

    80 Watt SWR Workingman's 10 amp. For home and jams it's the bomb.

    I got my first bass and a fender rumble amp a few months ago. I want to get a Quilter Bass Block at some point.

    My bass guy of the past thirty years uses a Peavey Mark III Series Solid State 400 Watt. So old, Hartley Peavey himself may have wired it, lol. His cab is a single Bullfrog 18". With a G&L L2000, no need of putting him in the PA. Cuts through everything.

    My little amp, though physically bigger , is a Traynor Block 80.
    Great, simple, dependable stuff!

    My main rig is an Eden E300T, 300 watts of all-tube glory, through a battle-scarred Carvin 4x10 cab. Once in a while I'll bust out my Peavey 1820 (1x18 & 2x10 in sealed cab) if I'm playing outdoors and feeling rowdy.

    At my band mates rehearsal space, I have a vintage 100-watt Univox tube head driving a 1x15 cab.

    I recently acquired a Peavey Classic 400 all-tube head, but have yet do use it for anything serious.

    I also have a couple SS units around, but they aren't light enough to warrant dragging them around for that reason. The Eden Nemesis 200watt/2x12 combo does occasionally get to go out and play
