Big Problem, want to buy 2 things can only afford one!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by rougeporn, Oct 25, 2004.

  1. Hi, I am currently in the terrible situation where there are 2 items of equipment I want to buy, but due to being too poor can only afford one. The things in question are :-

    Yamaha BB1500A - mint condition- £200


    ABM 4x8 cabinet - £275.

    The problem is that i really want to downsize my rig, but i also really want a jazz style bass aswell. Im just wondering what anyone thinks is the best deal and what is more often seen being sold? so i could buy the other later. cheers

    What size is your rig now?
  3. Big heavey peavey 4x10, and peavey 2x10. Im thinking of getting rid of the 4x10 and just keeping the 2x10, but Im not sure it will be enough. And Im just plain sick of the 4x10 coz its too heavey, and old and i dont like how it sounds. Im Using an ABM 500, which im keeping.
  4. Upgrade your cab first. Get a new bass later.

    I've got an ABM 4x8 and, although I wouldn't use it on it's own, it sounds fantastic when I stack it with my Ashdown 15". Warm and punchy, not at all harsh or scratchy.
  5. Yeah I get ya, but the ABM 4x8s seem to frequently be on ebay for around £300. But BB1500As dont, and theyre apparently hard to get hold of over here and are a discontinued model, so im not sure.
