: Hi,does anyone have any ideas on the best small combo amp and or pickup for my bass please. I work work with various small jazz combos and need something portable, but with a good sound. I used to think it was the Polytone brute, but I can't find one for love nor money. Any ideas gratefully received.
I have been eperimenting the last few years, and have seen input from other players.First let me say that the higher wattage the better the sound. I thought that the SWR 100 watt combo would do the trick, but it lacks the sound i was looking for Too much transistor sound if you know what I mean.I also bought a small 12 inch Bag End cabinet.Forget it. I t all depends on what kind of bread you want to spend. I hear that the Gallien Krueger Micro Combo 150 watts is great,and only 24 lbs. I think an ideal small set up would be a David Eden WT400 watt head coupled with a Rick Raezer 12 inch cabinet. That would cost approx. 1500 dollars.Good Luck
As far as pickups,I use the REALIST,have it on both of my uprights.GREAT PICKUP!
