Just bought a killer rig for small venues. Got a 9 month old Avatar SB112 off of Ebay and a Hartke 2000 from a fellow talkbass member. Whole rig only set me back $275 and my buddy's gonna buy my behringer bx600 for $100. The cab is 8 ohm so down the road I could add a 210 cab to get 4 ohms for more watts and addtional speakerage! I like the tube and solid state preamps and even find the compressor useful at low settings. The rig is for my son who plays an Alvarez 6 string and the low B sounds awesome through this cab. He's got the horn on the cab turned up to about 12:00 which makes it nice and bright without any hiss. Thumpity thump thump!
