Your funky sound is great. Recognize that sound in a band mix as a very strong Sadowsky point.

What is the advantage to change the pot for a 500K?

Try a Vanderkley VA615 Tube preamp and cabs. (Dutch)

IMO The best I ever owned.
My previous gear: SWR, Eden, Glockenklang, Alembic and Epifani

Current setup:

Pre-amp: Vanderkley VA615

The Vanderkley VA615 is a fully hand-wired all tube (2x ECC 83/12AX7) bass pre-amplifier.
This preamp is designed to maintain a brilliant, natural, open and deep bass sound under all circumstances.

The unit has very large headroom and extremely low noise and hum making it one of the most silent preamps on the market. High input impedances, low output impedances make it possible to drive difficult loads and/or use long cables.

With the Eq-section switched off the preamp gives natural open sound, when the Eq is switched on this natural character is maintained. The 5-band passive tone controls with first order (6dB/octave) shelving or band-pass filters are used to tune the sound to your personal requirements. This type of tone control guarantees an open and musical character at each setting.

The VA615 has a built in parallel effect-loop with phase correction for true deep bass reproduction. The level of effect can be added to your original signal via a potentiometer on the front panel.

A floating transformer prevents any ground-loop hum when the balanced D.I. output is used. This makes the D.I. extremely silent and therefore suitable for advanced studio applications. In a worst-case live situation, there is also a ground-lift switch on the back- panel.

The preamp is not sensitive to mains clicks and distortions on mains voltage variations and features a soft switch on/off.

Poweramp: Lab-Gruppen fp3400 2 x 1500 Watt/4 Ohm

Cabs: Vanderkley 212 NeoLite    Vanderkley 212 Neolite (2x) (1000 Watt/4 Ohm)

Glockenklang Take V
Epifani 212UL and 210UL
