    Hi I am a folk guitarist who uses an effects chain to create a bass on my lower strings(POG with compressor and eq). I was looking for good advice that would allow me to create a nice deep and clean tone with basic EQ and good portability. I use an acoustic guitar if that means anything.

    The tone from the bass in this video is what I am hoping to achieve.

    Max Budget is about £800



    Thanks!!

    I use two setups.

    Fishman Rare earth Humbucker -> boss compressor -> MXR 10 band EQ pedal -> Radial Passive DI.

    A little Thunder Pickup -> Boss Compressor -> MXR 10 band EQ -> Radial Passive DI.

    The PA changes a lot due to venue but mostly Martin Blackline Series Stuff.

    For what you are playing a Fender Rumble 200 combo would do you proud.

    I would pick an Ampeg PF350 head with an Ampeg SVT210AV cabinet.

    Small footprint (13 x 11 x 24, W x D x H for the cabinet; 11 x 11 x 2 for the head)
    Lightweight (26 lbs for the cabinet; 8 lbs for the head)
    For your set-up more than powerful enough, I expect
    This set-up is very versatile IMHO, easy dialing from clean to boomy etcetera.
    (I also play stagepiano with this setup, I like it a lot and I think you'd be pleasantly surprised by it when playing "normal" guitar over the Ampeg)

    Total price: 658 pounds at Thomann.

    Best thing perhaps is to compare the various options.
    Good luck with the search! :)

    IMHO, YMMV
