Rehearsals and small- to medium-sized coffeehouse/worship jazz-fusion/blues/folk gigs. I play with Drums/keyboardist in one group and acoustic guitars/mandolin/piano & singers in another group. Stereo 8-string bass with EMG FT active pickups. Teamed with a 10" + 6" cabinet or maybe a 12/6 fearful. The Choices: 1.) Markbass LMK (discontinued) or MoMark LMK 2.) Markacoustic AH 250 3.) Genz Benz Shenandoah Compak 300 4.) (Insert your own choice here) EDIT...and let's try and keep the cost sub-$1,000, just for giggles. Ready...GO!
