    Hello to all.. I need an advise from you. I want to buy a bass combo and i want to ask you which do you recommend me at these prices:

    http://www.thomann.de/gb/warwick_take_12.htm - 244eur
    http://www.thomann.de/gb/ashdown_t15_180s.htm - 285eur
    http://www.thomann.de/gb/warwick_sweet_152.htm - 359eur

    I need a bass combo that sounds fat and warm and it's not too heavey.. I actually have a 4 strings bass but in the near future i want to buy a 5 strings bass so this combo should sound good even on 5 strings basses. I said this because i read a review off the Warwick Take 12 and there i found out: "The low B on 5 strings MAY disappear a little too much, and you just have to line it out to PA or external power amp and 15 inch speakers or subwoofers."

    Thanks for your advices! Bye..

    Gotta go with the Ashdown as well, for all the reasons already stated.

    I would go for the Ashdown also. It is less expensive, more powerful, and it is much, much lighter. If you plan to gig with the amp, that will be a very important consideration.:cool:
