My current rig is an Eden 500-WT head with an Eden 210 XLT as the primary cab and a Trace 115 as an expansion for bigger setups. All of this stuff is about 5-6 years old, so I know it well. I've been kicking around the idea of a smaller combo 'cause I mostly play smaller jazz gigs now. I havn't even plugged in the 15 in 2 years, and am getting pretty sick of the seperate head/cab because it means (when you add effects box and music stand) at least 2 trips ( more often 3) to the truck during setup. That, and it's pretty important to tilt the speaker back so I can hear without blowing out the crowd in the bar. While it's possible with the 210/seperate head, it is not easy, as it has to be leaning against the wall or the head won't stay. The other problem is my bass is really quiet, and I have to push my current rig harder than I would like to keep up w/ our drummer. While doing some x-mas shopping at GC a couple of weeks ago I ended up with some slack time while my wife was looking through the books. I stupidly started plugging in basses and various amps. I plugged into a few, not really liking the sound, and then, at the end, ported into a Mesa M-pulse 600 Venture 210 combo. Wow. I was in love. It had great tone, and what felt like way more headroom than my current rig, even with the 15, and it was 1 peice. with wheels. While digging for info on the cab, I happend upon this forum, and after a bit of serching, I didn't find much on the new Mesa stuff. Is there a reason for that? Were I to trade up, what could I expect to get for my current rig? any thought/opinions? Thanks in advance.
