So my bassist's 100 watt el34 amp died on us a couple of weeks ago and since we need to keep practicing until he buys another one, he's been using my Dr. Z Antidote as the bass amp and let me tell you something... it sounds really **** amazing.
We are using a Jazz Bass connected directly and a reconstructed SWR workingmans cabinet on wood with a Celestion Green Label 300watts speaker.
Presence: rolled off Bass: 11 o clock Mid: 12:30 o clock Treble: 1 o clock Vintage setting (modern is too gainy) Normal Volume: 10:30 - 11:00
It's really interesting the way the amp changes with the instrument. I play a fender Jaguar with the bridge pickup through my antidote and my bass knob needs to be almost maxed out. The sonic spectrum of the bass is really different and the amp can really push a lot of bass. That's why we have it rolled off a bit.
Just so you know the design works. My drummer is loud and it sounds powerfull enough. Our tone is a bit aggressive but a similar 100 watt version with a master volume could become a really good bass amp.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

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!
