  • I need the benefit of your collective wisdom re: a bass combo

    Hello gentlemen and ladies

    I write pop/rock songs (https://soundcloud.com/songwriter101) and I'll be needing an amp to play them live. I'll be on bass. I already have a Sandberg bass which I really like and which has been set up perfectly for me

    I'd prefer a combo as I don't want too much stuff to lug around. Hopefully be playing pubs and small clubs

    Any tips as to makes and wattages? Budget is around

    Pubs and small clubs...Are you planning on running your signal to the mixer/LS rig, as well?

      I have a bunch of combo amps - consider something more portable and scaleable than a combo. I do like my Ampeg Micro VR with two of the SVT210AV cabs. Other heads work well with those too - the Ampeg PF350, GK MB200 or MB500. GB is going away but there are still Shuttle 6.2 heads available. Plenty of lightweight cabs from both GK and GB available. I have two of the 34 lb GK 212MBE's but mostly use them as subs - one of those in 4 ohms can put out a LOT of bass.

      I'm not sure what you mean by LS rig (I'm a gigging n00b)

      If you mean will I be DI-ing it into the PA, then probably if need be
