I recently bought a V-4 with a 4X12 cab. I love it. I have had an Eden WT400 for years, basically because it's the best lightweight hybrid I have found to my ears. Now I know it will not be getting much if any use, unless I have a blowout. I know many of you here like having an arsenal of equipment, but I have always hated having a backup because I feel like it doesn't get used and it's a waste. But I'm scared of the inevitable of a tube amp. Do you find it absolutely necessary to have a backup? I know you'll probably say yes. The other reason I am hanging on to it is my fear that when it comes time for the new band to play live, the V-4 to some people isn't enough power. What do you do for a back up? replicate what you love? Get something cheap/passable? I suppose I could always sell it and get another v-4 head, but then it wouldn't get used really .... but I could always use both heads if I need more power into one 4X12 cab couldn't I? I'm the type I don't even like having a backup bass. I have three, only because of sentimental value. But my Ric is the only one that sees the inside of a studio and show. The others are a Gibson EB-3L and a P bass... Is anyone else like this?
