Very straight forward question. Is it weird to mix brands? Here's my delema: I had a TC Electronic head (the 250 watt one I believe) and I thought "this is fine". I had never tried another head. I tried my friends aguilar head and fell i love. bought one and sold the TC. The only cabinet I have is a genz benz 10" speaker and its great for gigs where I have to bring my upright bass. I'm worried though cuz the aguilar head is rated for 350 watts and the speaker only 200. So I've looked around (with a very small budget) and think I can pick up a TC electronic cabinet locally. the RS210. I haven't played it yet but my question is: if i didn't like the head will the speaker also sound the same way, or do speakers simply not matter in terms of tone/sound? EDIT: Here's the thing I tried my friends 500 watt aguilar head though the aguilar cabinet that is best paired with it (its big haha). I liked the sound of my aguilar 350 watt head through it. I also like the sound of my aguilar 350 head though my genz benz mini cabinet. But I don't want to ruin the small genz benz speaker. I dont turn the volume louder than 12:00 because I don't want to blow the speaker. In the long run I need a bigger cabinet. I would love to just get the Aguilar cabinet, but its a little out of my price range. I found a TC Electronic Speaker that I can afford that wouldn't limit my head. But I don't want the sound that my old TC Electronic head had. If the guy ever writes me back I'll see if i can try it first.
