Something to replace my Hartke AK410
Hi, I'm a French bassist.
I have been playing Fender passive P and Jazz basses with an Aguilar TH500 head coupled to a Hartke AK410.
I recently bought a second hand Ampev SVP-CL preamp because I like the sound of my Ampeg pratice combo (BA-108) and some other Ampeg gears I've tried. I think I like Ampeg tone when it is good.
I think my basses and amplifier parts are very good but the cab lacks of something. It's hard to explain but I think it is not so agressive, it's a bit cotton, carton, felt, paper. I would like something better and more growly if I could. The low mid growl that we all like on jazz basses for example.
I am considering buying one of these cabs:
-SVT 410HE very close to my AK410 maybe ?
-SVT 410HLF, lack of mids boomy and heavy
-SVT 212AV, promising but nobody knows it and could be expensive for a "chinese" cab. I tend to prefer this choice!
-Aguilar DB212 or DB410 but I would have to add 400$
-Used SVT412HE that is available not so far from here but it's soooo heavy
Thank you for helping a French bassist to chose a better cab than his AK410
