I'm thinking about getting a new combo amp to play bass with. Only need something large enough to cover small clubs as larger clubs will have the bass going out through the PA. Currently have a Hartke Kickback 12. Used to have an Acoustic 136 a long time ago. So I'm thinking that the amp will have to be physically somewhere between the Kickback and 136 in size. (Both are single speaker units about 100 watts of power.) Maybe just a better speaker for the Kickback? (JBL making 12" bass drivers? Will look that up.) I'm not into shaking the room or playing so deep that you can't actually hear the notes. Suggestions? Any good experiences? I'm not against buying used and expecting to replace the driver. I love the size and functionality of the kickback. When I had the 136 I was much younger and it didn't seem heavy then. (Pretty sure I might feel differently at 61.)
No announcement yet.
