I'm in the market for a new amp; I've currently got a tiny Laney RB1 for practice and a Fender Rumble 150 for gigs. I play mainly jazz but a bit of other styles here and there too. I'll be using a Fender Jazz Bass and an Upright Bass with a Fishman Full Circle through it.
The problem is, my Rumble 150 is too big to take to some gigs physically (its power is fine because I don't play massive gigs, mainly small pubs & stages) and my band-leader is intimidated by its size too
So I'd like a smallish, portable amp that packs a fair amount of power that I can also hook up via DI when necessary. I've found the Gallien-Krueger MB150 seems to have a lot of good reviews and it's been recommended to me by several friends but I was wondering if there's anything else you guys would recommend, just because the G-K is very expensive
Any advice very gratefully received - I'm just trying to get a good compromise between power and size.
