So, I've been working on putting together a more serious rig. I'm currently using an Acoustic B20. It's decent, but I'd like to do better. I've posted other threads exploring some of my ideas and many thanks to everyone that offered their advice. I purchased two preamp pedals to try. A Rusty Box and a Tech 21 Para Driver. I'm really digging the Rusty and I'm sending the PDDI back. Anyways, I'm looking at getting either a powered PA cab to use or a seperate power amp & cab. What are the pros and cons of each setup? I was looking at getting a Mackie, JBL or QSC powered cab. Anyone here use these as a "bass" amp? How do they sound? Going the other way I was thinking an EHX .44 Magnum and cab. I've read that those break up early though. Anyone here use one and can comment on that? By the way, I just play in my apartment. I don't need or want some monster rig.
