I know there's a bass section but it appears quite bare in activity, so I'll asked here:
What Z would work the best as a bass amp? Combo with a speaker swap (if you can do that) or head?
I've need playing my bass, at low volumes, through my Maz which got me thinking about the question above. With my limited amp knowledge I'm curious what if any differences there are between bass and guitar amps, electronically, I know the speakers are different.

I've been doing the same thing with my Z-Lux combo, low, low volume of course, but it sounds great. It'll help loosen up the speaker a bit too, I suspect. In a pinch one time, I let our bass player use my KT-45 head through his SWR 4X10. It sounded awesome, much warmer than the SS amp he was using, right before it fried. The KT is a clean amp way up the V knob, a plus for bass tone.
My wife has a Delta 88. She runs it through a 15" EV speaker. Sounds really nice. It wont blow you out of the room like her 300 watt Eden but for what she uses it for the tone and volume are great. I imagine the Surgical steel would sound real good too since those amps are siblings.
My 2 cents, Todd

Yeah, I was going to suggest Surgical Steel as well. Delta 88 can be pretty gainy, but the Surgical Steel is for steel guitar - big fat clean tones. Biggest thing is getting decent bass speakers for it. The Z-Best cab with actual bass 12's might work pretty sweet.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
