Trying to find a good (smaller) cab for my Ampeg SVT II. I know that a "good" cab choice is very subjective but would like a little guidance as I begin my search. So, ported or non ported (non ported options seem limited). I use a 5 string so Low B is in the mix.
The tone I am trying to achieve is; Tight, Round/Focused, yet Big, Warm, and some Color/Grit. I have attached a link of Bruno Mars and his bass player has the exact tone I am looking for. The music is not my style but the funky bass line is.
I am guessing there is compression and some other processing involved for recording but the live version of the song sounds almost identical (a little more grit). This dude can play http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO8KIdCiD2U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxsdnC5kp4g
Please, any positive suggestions would be great
