Hard to believe just a couple years ago I was hauling around an Ampeg SVT with accompanying 8x10 cabinet and today I just received and gigged with one of the smallest bass combos on the market, the Phil Jones Bass Cub! 250 lbs. vs. 13 lbs.! I was extremely skeptical about the Bass Cub, but I gigged with it tonight playing in a 15-piece big band outdoors and while I had to crank the volume all the way up the little amp actually held its own. Tone is kind of "boxy", doesn't make a ton of lows, but definitely can cut through to be heard. I'll probably still use my Ampeg B-100R combo for these type of gigs but this amp really is nice when you can't park close to the stage and have to carry it for distances.
