I just bought an 810... no i need something small

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bareass, May 1, 2009.


  1. i've used a SWR goliath III for years now. problem is i bought the 8ohm cab, so it has always been to big for small gigs, and not loud (clean loud) enough for big gigs. and i was overdriving my svt5. i was just not matched up right. i thought about buying a 210 to use with it but came across too good of a deal on a 71 svt cab.
    i live out of town from my band, and am away at school so i'm looking for a set up that is really portable but has enough umph to play a gig with. even as a monitor if i go direct.

    need suggestions. cab, amp, combo... anything that will work for parctice and smaller venues
     
  2. i say go with one of those DR bass cabs seem to have a good rep around here... or the ampeg 410 hlf
     
  3. i want to get something smaller the 410

    2 210's then - can your head handle 2 Ohms? If so, get 2 4 Ohm 210's. If not, get 2 8 Ohm 210's. Better yet.... One 210 and one 112.
     
  5. hwat would you guys suggest for an amp. i don't want to bring my head back and forth, incase someone at home needs it or i need to take a train. i'm looking portable and cheap... while not scraficing tone.
    i was thinking about the aguilar tone hammer as a pre amp with some small (physcally)power amp
    but i don't know what out there.
    the main use for this set up will be practicing, but i would hate to turn down a gig for the lack of an amp. and at leat with the tone hammer i can use it as a DI

    Look first then at the Behringer BDI-21. Best $29 you'll ever spend on anything bass-related.
