i've read the threads on combos, but didn't find the advice i was looking for. i'm wanting to go smaller. we rarely gig, and my 2 x 15 cab is just to big to lug around for recording and practice. i play in a 3 piece rock band, so the bass can definitely be heard. i like a nice low tone, not too bright or plunky, but not distorted. and price is a factor. i really can't spend more than $400. 1. would it be better to just downsize to a smaller cabinet and keep the same head (peavey session bass), or trade both for a combo? for some reason my husband favors the combo. 2. since most people don't seem to be in favor of the combo...would you recommend a 115 cab, 112, or maybe even 210? i want something that could gig if mic'd. 3. opinions on gaillen-kruger backline and swr cabs? (the lower dollar ones) i know the best way is to go test stuff out, but we've got a little baby and live an hour from a music shop. want to go in with a pretty good idea of what i want. thanks for any advice you have.
