I've been using this cab along with the Ex112 when the room is big enough. Always with my Sadowsky modern 5. With a high energy dance band. But last night, I tried it with my big band and an old jazz bass with flats. What a great sound I got. Full, rich, upright-like and articulate. Using just a simple mic pre really let the sound of the instrument come through. I could get lots of different tones from blending the two pups just like you should from a jazz. I think the cab is what made the difference. Just thought I'd share. Cheers!
