: 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 just purchased a GallienKruegerMBS and sweet is not the word. I use both upright and fretless precision and this is the only thing I've found that does both jobs perfectly. I know you're only looking for an amp, and the MBs is a combo with a 10" speaker, but at just about a foot square this can (and does) sit on a mic stand, and what's more if you put it through the 10" speaker you already have you can get the full 150 watts instead of the stand alone 80watts. I play in lots of different bands, and everyone is amazed at the quality, the volume and, more importantly the depth that this little box gives out. The only disadvantage is that it will probably eat up all of your 700 ackers, I'd sell the ampeg, Let us know what you do, Big Paul
