I have a Music Man Sting Ray 5 (5 String Bass) and a 200 Watt Eden Nemesis. I am not crazy about the sound of the amp but my real issue is it weighs a lot and tough to lug around. I play out locally but most of the venues are pretty small (e.g. typical bar, etc) and when we play larger venues we are usually miked. The Eden amp is a beast and I am never louder than 3 (I really don't understand what the purpose of these super high watt set-ups if your not playing on a huge stage). I play a variety of music from 60-80's classic rock (ABB, Dead, Steely Dan, etc) to jazz/funk music. I slap and walk. I any case I want something light and versatile. I am looking to get something used for under $500. I don't really have much of an opinion regarding combo vs. head/speaker set up as long as it doesn't break my back. I was looking at Phil Jones but they are way to expensive and can't find anything used (but love the concept). In summary, light, loud enough to play at the local bar and rehearse with the band but not overkill, great sound, and want to make sure I don't distort. Also, since I am probably looking at ebay or Craig's list, amp can't be so obscure I can't find anything. Any ideas? Thanks!!
