Alright, apparently I'm going to be playing with a "post-modern" metal band (whatever that means), and I need to figure out the amp situation. I hate lugging aroung my ampeg half-stack, and I also have a Carvin 180 watt 1X15 combo and a Tech 21 Bass Driver DI/preamp thing. My question is, for small to medium sized gigs, could I get by with the Carvin and the Driver? I don't care about having fantastic tone, I just want to be heard. Getting my Ampeg stack could prove to be problematic as it lives at the guitarist's house of my main band(I live in a dorm), and I don't have a car. The Carvin is nice and light, and I could take it on the bus with me, if I need be. What do you guys think?
