Re: Building a bass amp
I agree about the Ampeg design. I have a '60's B-15NF that's perfect for practice or recording; nice fat tone! If you're looking at Marshall type, you may want to look at the Sunn Model T design. Basically a Marshall plexi circuit with a few twists like ultralinear OT and master vol. On bigger gigs the Sunn is my main rig and it's cool for clean or some dirt too.  
Another option is to get Kevin O'Conner's book Tonnes of Tone and build one of the bass preamp projects. This will be my next build coupled with a PP pair of KT90's in ultralinear.
