Howdy - I have been plunking along with a Fender Bassman 60 combo (wedge - monitor style). I got it for free, but the amp part needs a jiggle every week to get it working. Puppy be heavy, too. As it has been just me and my female friend playing R&B in my living room, it hasn't been an issue. I would, though, like to have something portable when I team up with others. Rumbles seem to be popular. The Ampeg BA210 combo seems nice, too. Then it got to thinking about it from another perspective. How about spending $350 on a Genz Benz 6.2 to grow with? Start with a small cabinet and then expand as needed? What do you think?
