Honestly, I just wanted to try something new. I've been playing through SVT4 Pros with 8x10 cabs for a while and it always gave me what I needed. So my next experiments would've been to go SVT Classic as I love the tube growl or give Orange a go. I also think my play styles diff from most hobby bassists as I tend to roll with a Nolly tone but for Jazz/Funk and it works really well.

Nevertheless, right now I'm just gigging and doing some studio work for a musical I'm working on. I've heard from some semi-pro friends who have switched to Orange from Ampeg and haven't looked back - but they never really gave me solid reasons why - hence my question here.

This is the tone I used for Funk-Metal consistently but now I've just decided to use it for my fun Jazz/Swing bits as it just makes it 'fun'. https://youtu.be/jypYWRmfM9A?list=PL...XHdExN-Qw&t=79

From 1:18 - 1:55 - the rest is far too distorted for me.

I sold all my heads/cabs when I moved to Australia/Europe, so now I need to re-buy. At home I practice through my Ampeg 1x15 combo with my Ampeg SCR-DI and a few effects for compression, envelope in the chain. But I'm starting a new project and need a gigging rig that sounds purrrfect.
Sorry I donít have any useful info for you, but I do have a question. When will the EU start allowing gigs?

I picked up the guitar again after a looong hiatus in 2018 and decided I wanted to perform again in 2019. Yeah, that worked out great. Itís been a frustrating bust here. Closest I could come was an old bandmateís invite to sit in at creepy house parties. Um, no thx.

Eeek, I can only speak for Germany/Switzerland. "Rumors" state in Summer everything will open up again. I live a short walk from Backstage which is a popular venue for smaller Rock concerts (think Slims in SF) and apart the times where we're on "lockdown" they're allowed to have Gigs in the Open Area (which is their Night Beer Garden, Nachtbiergarten) but this is usually for local bands as the turnouts are fairly low.

Anthony, I'm curious, where are you gigging that you still feel you need an 8X10 cab? Or was I misunderstanding you? Are you stating that you used to use that but aren't necessarily looking for the same thing now? If that's the case, I get it. Lugging around an 8X10 must have been an absolute pain in the ass.

I never played bass in a room larger than about 300-500 people and for that, I was using a 2X10 cab or a 2X12 cab depending on the music style I was playing. The amp was a Bassman 400 combo which had the 2X10s and I just added a 2X12 cab if needed...which wasn't really all that often. That's the amp that I almost always DI'd into front of house anyway but it could definitely push enough air to thump a 500-person room if need be.

500 watts seems like a lot to me, but I've been away from bass for years now.

Correct. And if you want to play venues like The Phoenix, Goldfinger, and random auditoriums you'd be surprised how much that 8x10 came in handy. I've got photos of it somewhere. With her custom road cover she weighed in at 200lbs lol

I did some R&B albums in Fairfield and Sacramento I can look for.

New studio tracks aren't mixed yet but I'll post some when I'm happy with it

Nice fanned-fret bass.

PS: He could cut out half the effort if he employed alternate picking.
