It all depends on your musical partners, the setting and what you like.
I played nothing but Ampeg B15s for years, then went to a SWR 15 inch Workingman model. Now I play a Hofner, with flats, or a Jack Casady bass with Dean Markley Blue Steel round wounds, through the Acoustic 260. I love the tone and the portability. I don't need a lot of volume. Mine blends very well with an acoustic guitar or 2, a mandolin and a group of singers. Plenty of volume for my purposes, sounds best from at least 10 feet away from it. As always, the room size matters.
