I've been doing a ton of reading on here lately to try and figure out what to buy to upgrade my amp and cab. Now I'm asking the kind people here for a sanity check since I have to buy most of this gear sound unheard. I'm looking to get a BBE B-Max pre and a QSC PLX-2402 to drive a Bergantino NV610. I was looking at a Aguilar GS 412, but I have a chance to get a used NV610 for about half the price of a new GS 412. $280 B-Max (new) $800 QSC PLX-2402 (new) $650 Bergantino NV610 (used) $1730 (includes tax & shipping) I could save $200 by getting a PLX-1602 if everyone thought that was enough power to drive the NV610. I don't need to be super loud for most gigs, I've usually got good PA support. I need the cabinet for stage volume and for small gigs where we don't bring the full PA. I need something deep, warm yet punchy with a hint of growl. I'm still looking for MY tone so I want a rig with some flexibility and range. I've discounted the Alembic F-1X (as much as I want it) because I've heard that the range of tones is limited. I play a Yamaha TRB II-4 (active 4-string) fingerstyle with a bit of slap. I'll add a 5-string to my collection after Christmas bonuses come out, so I will need the low-end eventually.
