I'm looking for a new amp!

    What I like best is my fender bassman.
    But I don't wanna hurt my back with the giant cabinet and the "old time amps " problems any once In a while..

    How do you suggest me for a 1000-1500$ something small but that show some respect on the stage?

    Tube Head - cabinet preferred, but suggest combo too ..

    When I think of a small cab, I think of a 1x12 or smaller...for cafe's and the like. If your playing onstage, I'd be looking at a pair of 1x15's. If you go neo, they'd be really light.
