    Hello there TBers, I would have some questions for you.
    I'm going to spend all my money for a bass... yeah, it's expensive! :)
    I already have a great Demeter preamp, but I need a wiring transformer to use it here in Italy, so I must take it and the 30kg transformer to my gigs and practices. Before spending big bucks to get a huge power amp and a big and heavy cab, I wanted to know if there's any small combo with an hi-fi sound and a good sensitivity/power. I obviously don't want to spend too much for it... thanx to every TBers, and keep it slapping! :D

    P.S. What about the Ashdown 1x10", the SWR Baby Blue and the various WMs series? I saw that Hartke little combos are cheap too, but I fear that the aluminium cone isn't hi-fi at all... ;)

    euphonic audio makes a single 10 combo that has 350 watts. it is expensive though. the baby blue has been said to have the greatest preamp for recording of all time & that it allows for the truest sound. i've played it and it sounds great but it is not very loud. those hartke alum's sound like crap IME/HO. i have had very bad luck with the 2 I owned.
