    So I thought I'd drop this and see if anyone had any input. I recently p/u '59 Kay upright - gut strings using 3 piezo p/u's-pretty much dream bass - looking for rig to do it justice. Obviously dropped some coin on the bass so funds are at a premium. This is a musicians forum so I guess that goes w/o saying. Anyway there are two good deals I can find, so any input is appreciated. In this corner- Eden e300 head - 300w - I trust Eden but cannot find any reviews at all! Not that I trust reviews but none? Serious markdown price. I have a 1x15 1x10 cab so going this route I would just buy speaks. In this corner- fender bassman 250/210 - 250w w 2x10 eminence speakers- all in 1 cab w casters - bonus- i'm into punk / rockabilly / old country/ ska/ jump blues. Need a rig that's gig ready for usual small/ medium clubs. I play a slap style bass / love that scooped - big bottom w slap / percussive riding on top. As I said any input appreciated - even if you just have one of 'em I'd love to hear what peeps think about it. Thanks

    I have had this Fender amp since 2007 and find it works great for small venues with an EUB. I play a Dean Pace thorugh it as well as a Palatino VE-500. I am very happy with it. However, for electric bass guitar I prefer my older fender BXR 200

    Thanks for the reply - I got the bassman and I'm happy I did- I got a good deal- but beyond that it is pretty loud for 2x10's! Alot of flexibility as well I doubt anyone would not be able to dial in their sound. The knobs actually do something! Yes the casters were a last second poor design - but nothing that $1.19 at the hardware store couldn't cure. The 4ohm internal cabinet is unfortunate impedance- but that's why it's loud. So far I would def recommend- especially if you get one on the cheap.
