    ...to my iAMP 800 and one CxL112. Just had a practice today with this and I had to really crank it to try to get it past the guitarist's full Carvin stack ( I typically wear noise canceling headphones but not today). So it is time to add on. I play NWOBHM so I like thumping chest pounding bass but I also have to think of the future when I play nice music ;) Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated.
     
  2. Check this thread. Some good info here.


    OR you could sell me your 800 for dirt cheap....Just a thought.:D

    Sell? I was going to give it to you so thanks for the offer of buying it. ;)
    As for the thread link, I cannot believe I missed that one, lot of good info and it really solidifies what might work best for me. Thanks

    I'd opt for the NL-210.

    How far are you from TB own Jong Lee store? He may have one in stock. Sorry if its too far. My geography is not very good.

    My rehearsal space is less than a mile away from Jive Sound and that is where I bought my 800 from. I did try a NL-210 with a CxL112 and it really did not curl my toes. Then again I tried a Thunderfunk with the EPI 310 UL and found it sounded sterile...my senses must have been off that day. Then again how it sounds in the showroom is nothing like real life.

    BTW your geography should be great as you are Canadian!

    I have played the NL210 with the CXL112. You are right - showroom and real world experience are two different things. I was not convinced about the NL210 until I gigged with it. Then it all made sense - I call it "print-through".

    BTW, if you are still looking, Club Bass has a great deal on an NL210 at the moment. Check out the Specials/Pre-owned section at www.clubbass.ca. They ship world-wide.

    Thanks, that is good to know of your experience and that Club Bass has one. I bought my Ken Lawrence from Dave back when I lived in Canada. As for the NL210, I have decided that I want a 4 ohm in case I use it without the CxL 112 so that I can get enough volume out of it.
