    Wondering if it's enough for rehearsal/gigs?

    Did a search, but didn't find it mentioned.

    I have a Portabass 228 and I'm in love. The thing has two hundred watts and it barely feels heavier than a briefcase! For a player like me, who needs some volume, but does not play for money or often, the Portabass series are perfect. Mine is a 2x8 with ports, and it has fantastic booty and lots of definition and clarity.
     
  4. do they colour your sound like an ampeg, or is it a cleaner sound? i've been checking them out too

    I suspect that the Yamaha BBT500 head @ $399 is a better deal right now for a light weight head with lots of options, but that's just my opinion...

    Thanks all. I ended up going with the BA500 instead. I came into some money and this stuff was half off of list. So I figured if I'm ever gonna get some decent gear, I'd better jump now.

    thanks for the replies.

    I love the BA500 too.:hyper:

    Will be playin it out tonight. So the guitar player had better watch his manners when it comes to stage volume.:p
