Greetings, complete newbie here (and with bass) so be gentle So... Just began my path as a bass player and thus looking for a combo that would suit my needs: - I can not play loud due to my living accommodations so I have no need for sheer power nor extra punch on the low notes - what I want instead is finesse on very low levels. - I am not interested on paying extra for brand name but am willing to pay extra for quality of both sound on low levels + quality of manufacture (with or without brand name). - I want minimum fuss so looking for a combo rather than separates.... - ...and have no ill will towards solid state, hybrid nor pure tube design as long as I get the sound, quality of manufacture and no fuss. - Knowing myself as the old geek that I am I have no use for sound tweaking attributes - that means that the more Spartan the device, the more likely it will be what I am looking for.... - and last but not least, I need to be able to source one in Europe (CE regulations) and the smaller the thing the merrier!. So far I´ve looked at stuff like the Phil Jones Briefcase, Orange tb500c and V8 T.A.N.K 20W Mobile (guitar amp but hey, it´s here to give you an idea) ; of which the Orange is probably the best but also the biggest which is a no-no as space is really tight... Any ideas what I should be looking at? Thanks, J.
