Hey guys, I've been an upright player for about 8 years, and I've always struggeled really hard with amplification. I play with a realist pickup. I've had a hartke kickback 15 for years, and that just never sounded like my bass. I just recently started using low action (I used to play crippelingly high for year, and just realized now that it's not normal). I bought a mesa boogie walkabout head, and I love it for electric bass. Currently I use an avatar 2x10 neo cabinet with it, but it tends to have feed back issues (which I've recently taken care of by basically cuttting all the highs). The cabinet just weighs too much (44lbs) and isn't loud enough for me. I've seen a bass player use an AI amp, I think it was a contra, and it was plenty loud in a combo setting and sounded exactally like his upright. My question is, does anyone have a suggestion for a light weight cabinet (preferably one that I can carry in one hand with my upright in the other) that will work well with my walkabout head and sound great. I'd rather pay a lot of money for a nice cabinet then to buy an AI combo amp because I like have a small amount of gear... and that's just really expensive. Thanks guys P.S. I'm also looking for a new set of strings. I've always played orchestral and jazz, so I used D'Addarios for ever, but moved to pirastro last year for orchestral work. I'm now in college studying jazz upright only, so I don't need them to bow very well. They are very rich and beautiful, but not very clear sounding in the lower register. Hybrid set up suggestion?
