: What is the Contra like for electric bass? or should I be looking at the Coda (as it has a 1" horn?)
: How does it relate volume - wise with a live drummer?
The Contra doesn't have the highs that the Coda has, obviously due to the lack of tweeter, but it delivers a great bass sound for electric as well as double bass. Its unconventional omnidirectional output is something to get used to-- it doesn't have the "throw" that a conventional cabinet has, due to its design, but the tone is good and warm. It's not an amp for high levels but it can get quite loud- I'll take mine for rehearsals with my classic rock band, but its only seen stage use with my electrics for jazz coffee house and also a couple blues dates with a drummer, and it held up very well. But it ain't a rock and roll amp. I've had one for over three years now and still love what it can do.
