Here's the deal. I had a doctor's appointment last night and I got some news I was dreading: I've got a hernia. I'm pretty sure part of it comes from lugging my bass amp around by myself all the time. So now I must part with my Ampeg SVT3-Pro and Avatar B212 for something lighter. I've already decided on an Avatar SB112 Neo 1x12" covered in tolex (dunno what color yet). What I then need is a lightweight poweramp that I can run my Bass POD Live into. I see that Carvin offers a pretty lightweight poweramp, the DCM1000 for $329 and weighs only 25 lbs. This means together, my rig would weight only about 80 lbs. plus the POD. Having read the current thread about Carvin poweramps, I am pretty confident that this is the setup for me. It also fits my budget very nicely. I believe I can attach a telescoping handle and casters to the cab and then get a rolling rackcase or lighter rackbag, and my POD travels in a piece of luggage. ALSO! Anyone care to share their hernia stories! I got in next Tuesday for a consultation with a surgeon. I'm 18, and I've already got a hernia.
