: Hello everyone,
: I want to know your opinion about the following cabinets:
: acoustic image, euphonic audio and bag end, for double bass.
: I know that it probably depends on the model but I do not really know these products yet. I don't even know if they are in the same "class". I know that it is a matter of taste but just tell me your feelings!
: Ian Simpson
If you have read any of my postings in the MB you will know that I am a great fan of Acoustic Image - I use Contra with a modified extension speaker ( I won't bore you with the details - if you want to know about the modifications e-mail me ) and it has a warmth and fullness of sound that I've never heard from any other amp , most importantly though it sounds like a DB not an electrical approximation of one --- GREAT AMP !
I have tried the EA and although it is undoubtedly a good amp the sound is too "clinical" for my liking . What you do have to remember is that these are only my opinions - the best way is to find a good music shop with them all in and try for yourself. I never got round to trying the Bag End - once I'd heard the Acoustic Image I knew that was the sound I'd been looking for all this time ( I've been playing for over 20 years ) and I was totally sold on it . A bass playing friend came to see me play when I'd got the A.I and was so impressed he went and ordered the same system as me straight away !!!
Hope this has been of some help - Andy .
