Please recommend compact amps [combos] useful for practice and possibly small coffeehouse gigs.
Polytone Sonic Bass
fender bassman 25
has a bigger 12" speaker for better low end, and its one of the lighter bass combo's i've ever held. also, has more EQ options up the ying yang.
wanna go whole hog? Euphonic Audio's iAMP350 combo. despite the 10" speaker, it projects your low B like a mutha.
yeah joker man those things look interesting... what a cool design.i've never tried out anything EA, but they look/sound like they'd be good.
my vote is for an Eden wt-300 or wt-400 head (get the gig bag from eden - way cool)
then pick a small speaker that you like
my top choices would be a bagend 15 with or without the coax tweeter, epifani 12, bergantino 12, or maybe an aguilar 12
i've used my wt-400 and a bagend 15 on 50 gazillion small gigs and it sounds wonderful
SansAmp / Tech 21 Landmark 60... I picked one up for the same reason.
I gig with a fully flightcased SWR rig (SM900 and goliath 6x10)
But....I bought a small used Peavey 2x10tx combo to leave at the rehearsal studio. It sounds fantastic in a small room.
From my own experiance the Peavey gear starts to loose the Long throw ability of the better amp manufacturers, but it is damn good value and will happily do small gigs in its stride.
SWR Workingmans combos - sound great, very portable, reasonably priced, lots of features. I got a Workingman's 10 for about $300 and I love it.
IMHO: Fender Bassman 25
