: Hey yeah!
: It is a pricey rig but the SWR redhead has a surreal low end!
: I could not believe my ears!(or my chair shaking!)At a retail of nearly $2000
: dollars this rig was fine collecting dust at the music store.
: It hurt to leave the store without it because this amp is a neat little package! It has a front cover that protects the speakers(2 10" speakers) and the amplifier. It even has a 1 space rack for a tuner or whatever! Then the cover acts as a prop for the amp pointing the speakers up at a 25-30 degree angle. Like I said amazing! Shop around there might be someone out there with one at a reasonable price!
: Since you have an ampeg, my dad bought this neat little ampeg Rocket Bass amplifier. It is loud!!! Now as far as thumping out the low b, I have no clue! But it was the 100 watt 12" Rocket Bass not the 200 watt model. The 100 watt was cheaper and still sounded just as hot as the 200 watt. Total cost to you under $500! I'm thinking around 3 to 4 hundred to be a little more specific.
: Rest assured that the swr redhead hit a low b and hit it hard! But and I said but, you only get what you pay for!
: Happy hunting!
You may also want to check out the Nemesis bass combos from Eden. I use one of
these with a six-string. It sounds great and weighs only 45 lbs. Mine is several
years old and I think the new ones are even lighter and come in a variety of
speaker sizes and configurations. Also, they are under $1000. Bass Player
magazine reviewed them a couple of months ago.
