Am I crazy? I think my Roland KC-500 sounds great as a bass amp. It's plenty loud for club gigs, has the same speaker/horn configuration as the SWR I used to use (workingman 15) and actually sounds pretty similar. Bonus: 4 inputs comes in handy a lot at rehearsals & in my living room (plug in a drum machine, a line from my computer). Has a direct out, it's on wheels.... I mean, I have my big rig but man I hate lugging that around.
