Hi all am a guitarist now also playing bass in a blues band (old school little walter, bb king, muddy, sonny boy williamson etc). I have seen some reasonable prices on ashdown gear over here in NZ and am thinking about matching an ABM 500 evoIII with a 2 x12 lil bastard cab. Really I am a complete newbie when it comes to bass gear so am encouraging your thoughts. I know the lil bastard cabs are designed to go with the little bastard head but at only 30 watts and mucho more $$ than the ABM I'm thinking that tube head won't have enough volume. Cheers for your thoughts!
