Look at the RunoffGroove link you posted. There is a suggestion in there to help it sound like a Bassman. Also, the larger your output cap, the more bass will be let through (generally speaking, depending on your output impedance).

Just about any amp you can make that works will be okay. Your're not going to get much base thru headphones anyway.
