I was just playing my Thunderfunk550 through the Schroeder1210 and a big smile came to my face. Thinking about all the threads and posts recently, it's an amazing time to be an electric bassist: Small, incredible sounding amp heads: Acoustic Image Focus, etc. Walter Woods Ultra Thunderfunk550 Eden550, etc. iAmp500/800 etc. Small, 'flat' cabs: EA Acme Accugroove Incredibly light but powerful cabs.... EpifaniUL and other Neo cabs Small, punchy, incredibly loud cabs.... Schroeder Berg's The ability to make a TOTALLY custom cab for a reasonable amount of money... Low Down Sound And the ability to still buy new quality tube gear, etc. if you want to. Plus all the other good stuff out there. If you would have told me 20 years ago that I could do a large, loud funk gig with a 7 pound amp and a cab that I could lift up to the stage with one hand... I just wouldn't have believed it.
