    I like the EBS 212 with the 410 set up. But with the way your talking, maybe the 412 or another 410.:bassist:
  3. Yuppers...

    Only a 4x12 would loo0ok kinda daft dunt u think hehe...

    Alos EBS do that 1x18 Sub and normal things.....

    I've contemplated the same sort of thing. For me, it's virtually impossible to try one out in advance, but I'm hoping to get feedback from a couple of dealers after NAMM.

    What I've come to believe is the 15H won't cut it, because it doesn't seem to have quite the frequency range. I've narrowed it down to the 15F or the 2x12.
  5. For me, gettin hold of EBS equipment is easy cause GB who make my basses for me.. are UK dist.. so0o...i can order anything...

    Bernie at GB also has contact with other leading EBS ppl round the world.. if u need help give him a bell ..

    Neway.. i love my 4x10 for Jazz, funky, stuff but for the hardrock/alt indie stuff i am doin with my band (and also really love).. i need that extra.. crunch....

    Not only am i having another Bass made by GB (at sum point).. with custom body shape and woods

    But need a Bigger rig.. ive got the power from the Fafner.. so0o might as well use it :D but dont want to end up with it all muddy like i did with my Trace Gear.. the 1518 just made things sound mudded and stuffs...

    If you can easily try out other cabs with your existing rig, you should do so!

    I'd tend to thing you're not gonna have a muddy sounding rig if you're just adding one more EBS cab to your existing setup. Instead, I'd tend to believe adding a 2x12 will give you the lows, the same as the 15F. The 2x12 would probably make your rig sound a little more mid-centric than by adding the 15F, though I don't know for sure.

    But, if you've got the opportunity to test drive it, you're better off doing that than listening to us...
