Hey all, You have been most kind in responding to a prior thread of mine about the best small/'cheap' bass amplifier. I've continued to do some research, and have been impressed with the stuff I've read about the Mesa Walkabout and the 1-12 and 1-15 combos. This is no longer in the 'cheap' category, however. I was wondering what folks think might be a good/better/best amp, combo or head/cab setup, in the price range for a new 1-15 combo Mesa Walkabout ($1,300 at the Mesa store in Hollywood). I have to admit that the 300 watt tube preamp head, at 13 pounds, and that passive radiator in both the 12" and 15" cabinets, sounds like a great option for me. However, the price is pretty stiff for a 'little' amp option. Size is important, but tone is paramount. What would folks consider a better option (if there is one) for something (preferably new) in that price range? For this question, size is not necessarily a consideration. Classic rock would be the primary tones I'm looking for. Thanks for your thoughts!
