    Real curious... Which channel do you prefer to play through mainly, stock or tweed?

    You're either going to need to change the way you do some things or get a new amp. If it was me, I would look into adjusting my approach to things before giving up on the amp. You never know, you may turn out the better for it.

    Still more flexible than a combo IMHO.

    Lots of folks won't agree, but a 20# Pro Jr and a Sennheiser e609 will cover virtually the same territory that beast will.

    Count me as one who doesn't agree. But I like to be loud enough to hear myself over a drummer while still keeping a clean sound. That's specifically the reason why I play a Bassman.

    I know you said no attenuator but may I ask why? The weber models that use a speaker motor work insanely well at bringing the volume down while keeping the tone awesome.

    I play with drummers as well. Put the PJ on a stand angled at my ear, and I can hear it at a volume where it's still pretty clean - I don't like big dirt at all.

    I also have a big old Concert that I use in the summer, but it truly isn't necessary.
