I just tried the new Ampeg Portabass cab...

    Wow! I couldn't believe how light it was! It was the 1x10" cabinet with tweeter. When I picked it up, it felt like the cab was empty! The thing weighs almost less than my bass!!

    The Cab sounded pretty good too. I played my Aguilar DB359 through it before I exchanged the amp:( . It does sound colored, but it has a nice bark in the midrange, and nice lows. I found the tweeter a little less smooth than my GS210, but it wasn't bad. Over all, a nice sounding cab.

    For small gigs and travelling, there isn't a cabinet lighter than this! They are truly remarkable!

    They only had the 1x10" at Steves music Toronto. I didn't spend much time on it, but I did check it out.
