In Reply to: Which new BIG amp ? posted by Al on December 14, 2001 at 12:44:05:
: Plague's back. I want to change my amp. Need something like a 500W head and a set of big enclosures. Heads : thought about SWR SM500 or BASS750 or Ampeg SVT3Pro or Ashdown ABM500 or Eden Highwayman. Enclosures : same brands, plus Hartke (it would be a 8x10", or 2 4x10", or a 4x10" plus a 18"). So you see I'm lost ! Need some help ! Thanx.
I have an Eden rig. I got a 4x10XLT cab with the 600 watt highwayman head. The 4 tens are nice and tight for slap, but you can get warm sounds as well. I have a fender fretless that I've played through for a small coffee house jazz gig once--a bit overkill, but that's all I had at the time playing top pop all the years. I get real good sounds out of it with a fretless and like the system a whole lot.
Very versatile and lots of power, but i'm hauling around about 125lbs plus some everytime I go out. It's heavy to move, but it's worth it, i feel.
Good luck in your search.
