I started playing bass in 1978 and started with a little Fender 15 watt amp...moved to a Peavey TNT 130 and then on to a Hartke HA3500 with a 4x10 cab
Been playing that same Hartke head for years and years....Tried Carvin, GK, and Poweramps over the years, but have always gone back to my Hartke (I own an HA3500, 5500, 2500 and a LH500) but this year my originals band made the move to Mesa with my Guitard player going to a Triple Rectifier..
I have been playing through it for about an hour now and have found a few tones i really really dig...
playing through my 2x10 Avatar's and it sounds amazing...but i really want to try a Mesa Cab
my first instinct is to snag a Powerhouse 4x10, but the Mesa Rep says i should get a 2x12 (never played through this size cone before) and though i love 15's for a clean tone i highly dislike them for fuzz and distortion...so what do you guys think!?
4x10 Powerhouse cab
2x12 Powerhouse cab (possibly two)
2 2x10 Powerhouse cabs (I'm leaning this route for the sake of portability)
