    Good day bass players !

    I tried to find some informations about my problem, didn't get anywhere.

    So i need some advice in order to achieve the best results for my bass tone, without spending too much.

    I use a peavey T 40 in combination with a Mesa Boogie Mpulse 600, 600 Watts @ 4 Ohms (320 @ 8 Ohms).

    I'd love to have 2 cabinets with 1x15 speakers, for portabilty and sound (i love 15" speakers more than 4x10 cabs).

    I'd rather buy used ones instead of new: my budget is 500-600 Euros

    Please give me some advices.

    BTW i play a sort of Stoner Rock/Heavy Psych music.

    If I'd have that sum of money, i could buy a Mesa. I need something more affordable, less expensive.

    No idea of the availability where you are but the ampeg svt-15e is a good sounding cab that can be had cheap used in the states. Peaveys with bw speakers also are a great value. Depending of where you are in Europe maybe older used trace Elliott cabs can be found. Been awhile since I played their cabinetry but remember liking it in the day.

    Thank you for answering: unfortunately, i saw only one of this made in usa, but they are pretty hard to find here in Italy: 4x10 svt's are more common. Peavey are damn good, but the black widows series is also hard to find.
     
  6. I think some more modern 2x10 vertical stack could foot your bill. Have you ever tried any of the Markbass cabs?

    Never confuse the tone you get from a 410, on the floor behind you, with a vertical stack of 210.

    Being in the home of Italian Poplar plywood and Faital drivers you could DIY some kickarse light cabs also. Plenty of help here if you want to go that road.
