I am trying to get more low end out of my guitar and am thinking about running a bass amp and cab along with my guitar amp and head. Was wondering if anybody had any thoughts if this would help me get there or if i am going the wrong direction. I am using a mini rec with a thiele cab and was thinking of getting a bass amp under 50 watts. I am trying to get a sludge/ doom tone but dont want to lose that Mesa tone.
Great post and explanation Danny! Thank you for contributing!
Thanks for the input Danny. I was wondering what direction to go. I wonder about speakers. When I called my sales engineer she suggested maybe trying an Orange Iso bass cab but $800 bucks for a guess seemed like an expensive maybe at best. I do have to admit though it does make me wonder about what it might sound like. As far as pedals goes I run a Bad Monkey overdrive and a Boss Fuzz FZ3 and a Boss CS3. I was considering something like a EBS OctaBass pedal but didn't know as that alternative was far cheapier than the Orange cabinet. Its just tough because I can hear the tone in my head but just can't figure out how to get there, but I thank you for your very well informed advice. I just hope that what I am hearing in my head isn't telling me to but the guitar down and pick up a bass...lol... Maybe its too many years of listening to Sleep and OM.
