I play once or twice a week, mostly medium sized indoor club gigs to no more than 200 people, but often outdoors to slightly larger crowds and occasionally big outdoor gigs. Things are hit and miss as far as PA support goes - rarely get the same guy twice and they all have very different appraoches to bass in the mix, etc. My playing context requires big, authoratative but clean bass. My tube amp is staying home from now on - I've dragged my Crest CA6 out of the spare room and I'm contemplating one of the following options: Glock Bass Art Classic Pre OR Puma 500, either on it's own or taking a 1/4" line out into the CA6 when necessary. Both get love on here for their quality - I like the idea of being able to use the Puma on its own unless circumstances dictate that I'll need to bring another cab and bigger whump to cover the gig. I'm still fit enough (sort of) to move a 4u, 50lb rack around, but like the portability advantage of the Puma. I can get either for about the same money - Neither will dissappoint, that much is certain. What does Talkbass think? Anyone tried the Puma line out into a lead sled power section? Am I better off just going with the dedicted Glock pre and loving it, despite the extra weight, even when it's not completely necessary to be hauling it? Thanks as always!
