Hows this for a rig (not meant to be impressive, just wondering)

  1. Amp:
    Ashdown Superfly head (2x250 watts @ 4ohms)
    Carvin BR210 2x10 (400 watts @ 4ohms) (it has a horn)
    Boss Bass Overdrive Pedal

    Ibanez GSR200
    Dean Metalman ML

    I'll get a 2nd 2x10 when I get more $$. Also, I know my basses are low end, but I've only been playing for a year and a half, I'm hoping to get an Ibanez SR500 and a Schecter 004.

    Old Amp Set Up:
    Behringer UltraBass 900 (90 watts, and not very loud watts of crappy tone).

    I'm excited for it, and I need to power now that my guitars upgraded to half stacks. :bassist: :D

    If it sounds good, play it.

    +1 on eventually getting a 2nd 2x10.

    Matching cabs (no phasing problems) rule.

    I regularly do serious gigs in arenas and large theaters using basses that cost $250 or less. My main bass currently cost me $325 + about $150 for new electronics.

    A single 2x10 will be good for rehearsals if you listen for any signs of distress from your cabinet. If you intend using a fuzz (yuck) on bass to have to pay close attention as the fuzz can disguise the sounds of stress.
