    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 ..

    What size speakers do you usually use 10s, 12s, 15s?

    I don't like mark bass..
    For some reasons they never "catch me" on the stages..

    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.

    Fender Bassman 100T and a Fender 410 Neo. It is what i use and it is heavenly! Not that heavy for a bass player....a guitar player maybe!!
