I need an amp and head. I have $1500 to spend.. and that is a LOT of money. Assuming I buy new. Should I go for a Markbass head and Ampeg 4x10? Are there combos that can serve my needs of playing 500 or less person clubs.. we have a mixing board.. and PA.. so I can go DI. A combo appeals to me. I have an Ampeg SVT that is dying.. it's about 30 years old now.. I love its solid state sound, but it is time to move on. It's a combo amp and it's getting tossed. It's time for a change. Advice appreciated. I like Line 6, but it sounds sterile. I like Markbass, but it seems no live players I see are using it, except for a guy from Ultraviolets in STL and his sound is good.. but I think he has a $3,000 rig. So $1500.. I like the portability of Markbass, but want an Ampeg sound.. I am thinking of Ampeg 4x10.. and Markbass Little Mark head.. I think I can get both for $1500, especially if I go used on the cabinet (which I do not want to do). Ashdown? Eden? Ampeg? What are typical club guys playing through? Combos? separate heads? I welcome thoughts and realize this could be a duplicated thread.. but I wanted to talk about my spending limit.
