Ok guys, here is my question. I just got a Pre Ernie Ball Stingray that is very very nice. So now I am looking for a good Professional grade rig. I would prefer some portability but it needs to be loud enough for band practice and gigs that I can't run through the PA. I am currently using a solid state Peavey 70s head with a 1x18 cabinet which I think is too big and it sounds a little farty with my new bass. I mainly play with a pick and mostly rock. (collective soul, e. johnson, some 80s like quiet riot, van halen, and mid 90s and up, alternative I guess) I don't want a trebly tone but I do want the bass to come through the mix. When I use my 1x18 it doesn't get through the mix well at all. Everyone tells me to turn up and I keep turning up but it doesn't cut through very well. Take into account I don't know alot about Bass Rigs so please let me know what would work out well with my playing style and Stingray. Something I could use and be proud of my sound. Thanks.
