I have a big rig for the louder gigs I do, but I'd like to improve my rig for medium and small gigs. All the new lightweight stuff is quite appealing because I have a bad back. Unfortunately I live 2 hours from nowhere, so I'm relying on my years of previous gear research combined with what I hope will be expert advice from you TBer's. Some background: I play an early 70's jazz bass with perfectly aged nickel rounds (can't remember when they were new!). I use my fingers. I love Duck Dunn, and George Porter and Family Man Barrett. I play in a Delta Blues/Soul band that can be LOUD. I love my DB750 into my Ampeg AV810 (though in a perfect world the fridge would not roll off the lows quite as much). Prior to this huge rig I loved my F2B/CA9 into my Eden 212xlt. I sold the F2B/CA9 and replaced it with an Ashdown ABM500 which I like ok. I run the Ashdown into the 212xlt or a single Aguilar gs112 for small and tiny gigs respectively. I use the DB750 into the 212xlt for medium gigs which is 98% of what I do. The DB750 into the 810 is mostly used for rehearsals which, ironically, are louder than most gigs. I like the sound of both combos but with the Ashdown I'm starting to crave a bit more tightness, without losing warmth. And with the DB750-212xlt combo, I'm wondering if there might be a lighter, modular cabinet that would still be warm and fat and capable of standing up to the volume the DB750 puts out. I'm picturing two neo 15's stacked. Here is what I'm wondering: 1. Is there a lighter cabinet than the 212xlt that remains warm and fat? A neo 15 of some kind perhaps, that would sound good with the DB750, while taking its power without getting dirty sounding? 2. Is there a middle to light weight amp that is louder and tighter than the Ashdown while still being warm and fat? 3. Is there a totally different middle to light weight amp/speaker rig that would help accomplish the loud, tight, warm and clean sound I'm looking for? I realize there are trade offs- some cabs might be light and fat(ish) but not loud, etc. I know there is no single "right" answer to any of my questions. I'm mainly looking for suggestions based on what has worked for you guys. P.S. I did a search but that tool is a "blunt instrument" (at least in my hands).
