House amps just weren't a thing in Texas and on the west coast. Now most places I play have one, but they tend to be bass guitar amps. I can get passable sound but end up lugging my GK 200MB when it matters. Is the Fdeck the answer to this? I drive to my Boston/Cambride gigs so this is more about NYC and making Subway trips easier - I like to keep it to the bass and messenger bag full of my CDs & tapes. Also, I can't find prices for his series 1 or 2, I don't need anything fancy!
