I originally posted this in amps but it was suggested I move it her, so here goes... My band will be going onto the studio to record our album at the end of the month. I will be using my '79 Fender Precision and Ashdown EVO500 for the whole thing but I am unsure which cab to take: I own a 4x10 and 8x10, both from the Ashdown ABM series. I expect I will take both along in the van but I am curious about what sound differences, if any, that will show up. The bass is going to be recorded live with the drums, as the studio is a converted barn and allows the band to play live rather than track individually. So the bass will be loud. My sound has lots of highs and I use a fair bit of overdrive from the amp, a la Wetton, Entwistle etc. I expect the engineer will take a DI as well as mike the speaker, but in the past my recorded sound has tended to favour the miked amp sound. So the question is - will the cabs sound different beyond the extra 'power' that the 8x10 gives off?
