Well, not the first gig- just the first indoor gig. The initial gig was outside under a tent in the rain so evaluation was difficult. Last night I played in a fairly long narrow tavern with my four piece band. There was no PA support, it was used for vocals only. The results were awesome! These 12" cabs (HT and EX) really cut the mustard. Paired with an Eden WT-550 there was plenty of bottom and room-filling oomph. Several other bassists were there and one sat in for a few tunes. They were VERY impressed with the sound and they were used to larger cabs like 4x10's and 2x15's. These little babies are easy to carry (one with each hand) and sound BIG. No, I don't work for Mr. Bergantino... just very happy with the sound.
