: Okay, here's a pygmy dilemma/treat for those of you who are, shall we say, more Technically Inclined than myself. (So, probably ANYONE reading this...) Anyway, I'm looking for an amp, preferably WELL under $700, and preferably very portable, that I can use with a 10" speaker, for BOTH my acoustic-upright 4 string (clad with The Realist pickup), AND my electric 6 sting bass guitar. I play mostly small-mediumish jazz-type gigs, and on louder gigs I can use a mic anyway, so this amp really just needs to be not too big, and sound SWEET and clean. I currently use an Ampeg B3 with 2 8" and a tweeter, but it's nearly 60lbs and that is toooo much for such a little amp. Any brilliant ideas? Thank you!!
::I've recently bought a Gallien Krueger MBS which I use for upright and precision fretless, sweet isn't the word. I know you said you just need an amp and the GK is a 10"combo but it is still small enough to sit on a mic stand, and what's more if you connected it to your 10" speaker you can get the full 150 watts instead of the stand alone 80 watts. It sound like you do similar gigs to me, and everyone I've played with has been blown away by the quality, the volume and most importantly the depth of sound I'm getting from a box that is little more than a foot square, and at bigger halls I've used the preamp out into the PA with no loss of quality. The only downer is that it will probably eat up your 700 ackers, I'd sell your ampeg. Let me know what you do, Big Paul.
