    So my old amp (not worth mentioning as it was a disgrace to my beautiful bass) recently blew up, litteraly...

    So im now in the market for a new amp

    i was looking around and i saw that i could get the 250 watt 15" CL combo for like $800 I believe... i was wondering if i should get that or should save and get a 4x10 cab with a 400-600 watt head of course both being Warwicks (head and cab)

    i dont play large stages by anyt means, but my guitarist got teh crazy idea to get a 350 watt 4x10 Marshall and i dont want his sound to just completely outdo me...


    what would you guys reccomend?

    Personally I think the combo would be best, considering how easy it is to move around compared to a half or full stack.

    Personally I would try to get a 410 and a suitable amp, I think the response and the punch is so much better, even though the placec you play at are not that big. Get some rodies to carry your stuff :wink:

    I may also just replace mine with a better combo. As far as a single combo amp whats better, 1 big speaker or like 4 10"s?

    Hi Jay, I would always chose a 210 or 410 instead of one bigger speaker, or a Phil Jones Suitcase with 5" speakers, that one can blow your head off

    Hi, I play a Corvette Proline 5 string and I use the Ashdown mini speakers 1 x 15 & 4 x 8 with an Ashdown ABM evo II head. This is truly a great sound, very loud and is extremely portable. You should give a try you'll be impressed + you have a DI out if you want to go into a big rig.

    My vote goes towards a head and 4x10 set up.... I've been very pleased with the Eden Nemesis NA650 and NSP 410 which is affordably priced.

    Get a very large rig, make your guitarist whimper in fear! Madison 8x10 and an Ampeg SVT-3 PRO. Now THAT'S power.

    If a combo suits your needs, definitely get a combo. An all in one package is very convenient...
