    I am looking for a light weight combo that can do double duty as a standalone amp for accoustic gigs, and have enough power to drive an extension cab for band gigs with a drummer. I want something < 45 lbs. I looked at the new Fender Bassman 100 at a local store, and while the amp will certainly handle all my acoustic needs, when I tried it with a few extension cabinets, it just didn't have much headroom. Unfortunately, all of the cabinets at the store were 8 ohms and the little Fender puts out 100 watts at 4 ohms. I was wondering if anyone had tried this amp with a 4 ohm 2-10 or 2-12 cab and had good results. If I had the money, I would consider an Eden CXC-110, but that amp with an extension cabinet is much more than I can justify.
