    This month I'm going to start playing with a jazz group. I've never played with other jazz musicians before. There's a standard rythm section plus a couple horns. The trumpet player seems to favor Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard with a little Monk thrown in.

    I have a GK 700 RBII head, and Aggie GS112 and a Ashdown Mag115 cabinet. First gig is a reheasal indoors. Which cabinet should I bring, or do I need to bring both?

    The 1X12 is all you should need. That's all I take for my big band gigs.

    Have fun!

    Most jazz groups I've worked with generally don't want a lot of clutter, and the gear should be as unobtrusive as possible. A single 12 works anywhere for me, even outdoors. A good DI is your friend when a 1-12 isn't enough. :cool:

    I'd just bring the 112 if I were you. It should be plenty.
