Question: I've been a long-time Fender J player through a Fender 250-210 combo for a lot of years. A couple years ago I bought a Fender Rumble 500 head and 210 bottom and an Ibanez active 5 string. (Would probably still be playing through an Ampeg B300 if they made a durable cabinet but that's another story). Playing in a 5 piece honky tonk country band I have to have the volume and gain down so low that I can't really use the controls. Put the Rumble head aside and bought a MarkBass 200 head. Improvement, but still way too loud. Clubs we're playing usually average 100-150 people... Eagles, VFWs and the like where it's real easy to get too loud. Is there a solution other than abandoning the active 5 string?
