    I'm looking at getting an old styled tube amp for my upright. How well do these B-15R's work with upright. I'll be playing bluegrass, rockabilly, and some big swing stuff

    B-15s have a particular heavily damped sound that results from putting a large speaker in a very small cabinet. It's nice for electric bass at low volume because it's very percussive and not boomy- great for recording with 1960s technology. But for accurate HiFi reproduction of an acoustic instrument... it sucks.
