I need to get a new amp to use with my upright. I am going to sell my Aguilar 2x12, and Ampeg preamp + seperate power amp to get the funds. The new amp only needs to be used for upright. I play a kc strings carved bass with a realist pickup. I know all basses sound different, but i would appreciate any advice on a light flat sounding combo you have. On this budget some things I am considering are an EA powered Wizzy 1x12 with some sort of preamp (is $699 a good price). An EA CXL-1x12 with a used AI head. A LDS 1x8 with a used AI head (would this have enough volume to play in medium size combo situations?), or a mackie/yamaha powered pa. One thing I am curios about is what is the difference in sound between the CXL-1x12, and Wizzy 1x12? Any other suggestions are welcome to, especially if they are cheaper. Thanks.
