    Hi there,
    I am looking into getting a cab. and head, but I havent got any idea at the mo what to look at.
    At the minute i still use my old marshall practice combo which has no power at all really, lol, and I use my schools Carlsbro combo for any concerts, but I am leaving school in the next couple of years.
    I am a young student bassist, but I have big intentions for when I leave school, so I figured that I need to get something with a bit more umph :bassist: I play with big bands, concert bands, and will be doing some pit work for concerts etc. so any good all rounder!
    I am open for any suggestions, should I look out for a second hand or just get a new one????? :help:

    Thanks!!!!!!! :D

    I don't know if you can get them in england, but how about a nice aguilar 112 combo (500w into 4ohms, 2 speaker outs)like this

    you can always add an extension speaker...
