I use an old SWR WM 12. But I don't have the need for a lot of power. Just playing alt countryish stuff, lots of times with no drummer. Have an old 50w Bassman head in the shop, gonna try it for both bass and guitar.
My upright goes into a Baggs PARA DI straight to the board.
T.C. Electronics RH450. Powerful enough that I can use it with my cab as a bass amp, but small enough that I can carry it alone and go straight into the board if I so desire. I also really like the sound of it.
I got tired of carrying around large things, so I broke it into smaller pieces. Although the new TINY high power bass heads have me totally beat for convenience.
4U SKB rack case - BBE BMax Preamp, dbx 166 compressor, Crown PLX1602. Two Avatar SB112 cabinets. It's rare to need both cabs for any gigs I play these days.
For tiny acoustic gigs I take a little 15w Trace Elliot guitar amp with an Eminence speaker in it, it's perfect to play with flattop guitars and fiddle. I kind of enjoy messing with the people who think I should buy an upright bass. .png" alt=":smileytongue:" title="Smiley Tongue" />

At last night's gig, I used a Sunn Model T from the mid to late 70's, into two Sunn Concert PA cabinets from themid to late 60's. The cabinets are loaded with JBL D130 drivers. They also have horns, but I've disconnected those as well as the crossovers and am running the D130's full range.
At Friday's gig, I played through a Sunn Sentura II (60's guitar head) into a Sunn 410H cabinet (90's bass cabinet).
