    Guessing that the majority of us are doing small to mid-sized rooms where a single cab will easily suffice. Outdoors, you may want more, so keep this to the sweet spot of the bread and butter gigs. What's your favorite cab, why - and yes, we all want an SVT 810.

    my fave - Mesa Subway 115 or 210. It is very well built, easy to schlep and I have no reservations depending on it. Of course, it sounds great. Most of the time I'll go with the 115, it's a little lighter and primarily, it's closer to the door in my house. If there is more stage space, I'll take both the 115 and the 210.

  4. No I don't. I lug my own gear around.

    I'm fine with my MarkBass 115.

    Nein on the SVT. I'm pretty much retired from gigging now but a 112 was plenty for virtually everything indoors or out for the last 15 years. The one I've kept is an AudioKinesis TC112AF.

    210 for most small to medium, 410 for larger, 410 and 210 for maximum effect

    I too enjoy these, but 115 lbs changes the equation. Was considering a Barefaced 610.

    For close to 20 years I've helped drummers transport and set up their 30+ piece kits. I've carried a guitarist's pedalboard that was overflowing with colorful little boxes, then helped him put all 6 of his guitars on the stand onstage because he, "really needs a different sound for some of the songs and this one just looks badass!" I've hauled a PA system around with a 100 different cables and microphones to mic everyone. I've made last minute tambourine/glockenspiel purchases for guest vocalists who wanted something to do during the guitar solo.

    The least any of them can do is help me lift my 8x10 over the 1 (one, uno, une, ein) single step to get into the venue. I'll even wheel it the whole way!

    just proves you can’t shame people into doing the right thing. Even when others are watching. What do the other band members say about your prima dona guitar player? Do they help enable his behavior?

    on the other hand, when I regularly used Ampeg 8x10 cabs, I found them to be MUCH easier to hand transport...even to get up or down a couple steps...than 4x10s or other heavy cumbersome hard to maneuver cabs. Only reason they dont go to my gigs now, is I don’t need that much stage volume.

    Most gigs i use a 4x10

    Much easier to move around than an 8x10

    I have never needed anything other than my Berg AE 112
    Some day I may decide otherwise and get a Fearless F112
