I'll cut to the chase here. I want to buy a rig soon because I only have a Rumble 15 and needless to say, you can't play out with that. Budget $1200 tops. Here are some things I've been thinking about and comparing. Any opinions and advice are very much appreciated. Ashdown MAG 600 or Mibass 550 with ABM 410 (the one with blue speakers). Ampeg SVT 410HE with PF500. The Ashdown rig has more watts. However, I don't imagine myself playing very large venues (my area mostly has cafes, small to medium sized clubs, etc.). Apparently no one ever writes reviews on Ashdown stuff, at least that I can find, so I don't know what the general opinions on these are. Ampeg, of course, is classic and the go-to for many bassists. I have tried the 410 and the PF500, but not together. I loved the sound of both of them though. However, the widely-reported reliability issues with the PF500 make me hesitant. Avatar cabs also look interesting, but I have no idea what they sound like. Any other ideas are welcome too. I need something nice and reliable as this will likely be my only rig for a long time (I'm a college student). I am into all kinds of music, mostly '60s - '80s, anything from psychedelia to dance music and modern indie stuff. So I want something versatile, but I mostly lean to a vintage type of sound. I'm currently using a Squier VM Jaguar with Chromes. Thanks for reading, I'll be keeping watch for any answers!
