Mike gave me his new 9 lb!!! cab to check out and I used it and an EA Doubler with my piano and sax trio last night. Put it up on my CXL12 which made it close to ear level, as I sit on a stool. I spent the first set tweaking volume and tone between tunes, and by mid 2nd set, I had found the sound. This little thing puts out a centered and natural sound (also punchy with some meat on it) and gets plenty loud for small group jazz. It can get deep and crispy high, too, which I dialed back. I think it might work with a drummer as long as the volume stays below a roar, but I'd prefer to go larger in that situation. I didn't try it on the floor but I think that having it up helps with audibility and would make it easier to note if it is being pushed too hard, although I didn't get to that point with it. This cab with a micro head in a backpack, and you're at less than 15 lbs. I easily walked the 2 blocks from the garage to the venue. I like!
