Ok here is the scoop. I have (2) Ashdown ABM 210T cabs, a MAG 300 & 600, and a MarkBass LMII. And I do not like my sound with any combination of this gear. I know that they say “tone is in the hands” well my hands must suck. But get this, I really like my sound with a Crate BT25 practice amp. I also have a little Peavey amp and I hate it too. I mainly bought the cabs to compete with a drummer and 2 guitarists with Marshall JCM800 with ½ stacks. I was thinking about gigging with them but I have no interest. So now I am thinking of selling all my amp gear and buying a loud but manageable combo, preferably one with 3-4 tone controls and maybe a compressor (which I think I would really like to even out my notes and string volume) What say you?
