    Any TB'ers own/tried these out? I'm intrigued by the PB800 head and the 2x12 cab. A powerful rig with a total weight of less than 60 lbs. Sounds good, though the head is nearly twice the price of the BR2E I am considering.

    I tried the Porta-Bass models a while back and was impressed with their weight but not so much with the sealed cabs. Tone is a totally subjective thing and some players like the tone. IMHO after trying a Mesa setup recently, I thought the tone of the Mesa Walkabout head with a Scout cab was a much better alternative tone wise in a light weight small setup.
