: 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 was in the same dilemma: One Upright (I use a Schertler-Elektrostat PU) an a 6-string bass guitar. I bought the Drome-combo from EBS.
It's got a 12" Speaker, a horn and 150W which make it very powerful. It also has a notch-filter, compressor/limiter, tube- and speaker-simulation etc. Have a look at www.ebs.bass.se to see all the features.
I think it cost about $1000 but it's worth it. Heavyweight sound from and lightweight (about 30lbs) combo.
