Hey guys! i've read a lot of great info here, so i'll ask something to you! I'm playing bass fora a "metal/metalcore/rock" band and we are just at the "composing stage", but we'll play some gigs soon and i have nothing but a custom luthier type 5 string bass based on a fodera, with two bartoline's caps. (i previously play the guitar and now im kinda "switching", so i dont really know all the bass stuff very well...) i was thinking about getting a pod and going direct and so (most cos i would use podx3 for guitars and vox too) BUT i decided go amped and now i dont know what to do... hehe i thought getting a peavey tour 450 or hartke lh500 (i saw some good opinions about these around here) and a 4x10 and then a 1x15 or 1x18... but the heads are only 450w/500w... so ....will this be enough for the cabs? and i dont have so many choices since im in brazil and all the great stuff (gk, ampeg, and so) are REALLY expensive here . i was thinking about getting a PEAVEY TVX 410 or BEHRINGER ULTRABASS BB410 (is that good?) i dont know if i'll need 4x10 but im afraid not getting all the sound ill need with a 2x10 ... Do you have any sugestions for my "future" rig? are these good ? 500w is enough for giging? (for guitar even 50w was enough ) i like a little dist or (svt like) sound , so i was thinking about a sansamp bass direct driver too.... sorry for the book! i hope you can help me... thanks OH! and what about Hartke VX 410? and WARWICK CB WCA 410 PO ?
