I love my Peavey supreme 160 for da bazz and guitar. Active EQ thumps hard as shit.
Those Orange CR120 amps are mighty. Gave one a go recently. My local practice space got one in, and it blew me away. It takes dirt/fuzz pedals well, and sounds colossal. Or the clean can go a little crunchy, and be driven with an OD. Or with no pedals at all, it still sounds excellent. I don't think it sounded very Orange-y though. Infact, I thought it was closer to a Marshall DSL, but without that ear-piercing fizz.
I played through the combo version of the CR120, which sounded great on its own. Then I connected it to an additional 4x12. Christ. It pushes serious air.
They're so cheap too. How are they so cheap? I think I might get one.
I used to have a Marshall Valvestate 50 head when I was 18. Played it through some unbranded bass cab. I quite liked it. It had some serious crunch to it, and served me well when I was playing in shitty hardcore punk bands. My tone always sounded huge.
I was on a solid state hunt recently...just wanted an amp i can turn on and off without having to worry about tubes and also use headphones...if that orange crush pro had headphones i would have got it no question.
In the end i got a small little roland cube....i used it with low volume for night practice but that thing has so much bass its amazing!
treble seemed a tad high for my tastes, particularly with the HM2 but that's just a matter of one man's opinion. Head sounds pretty decent. Wouldn't mind trying one out especially if I could get a decent price on one.
hahaha it's actually just a plain ol hat, I just push it back on my head cause oddly I'll be sweating but my head is cold. My wife hates it when I wear it like that cause she says it looks like I'm balding.
It might be a bit more trebly cause I put in earplugs so I usually end up adding more treb than I actually need, also... camera mic ain't the best so it cuts a good bit of the lows out.
but you both are welcome, I'm glad some people appreciated it.
