I've while ago I was tossing up the idea of upgrading from my Trace 1048H for a while and have held off doing it because I wasn't sure whether my band were continuing on or not. Now it seems that they are I think my spine and car require that I buy a lighter/smaller cabinet for tours and local gigs. My primary problem though is volume. I have to go up against a Mesa 50/50 and a Peavey 6505+ every week and I really need all the juice that my 1001 can provide in the rehearsal space. The Trace keeps up with this which I greatly admire but it doesn't like it at all and it's probably only a matter of time til I wear it out. Everyone keeps telling me that in order to keep myself present in the mix I need at least a 610 or a fridge, neither of which are portable in the slightest. So here's my question; is there a lightweight 210 or 212 which could do a better job than the Trace Elliot? I was looking at the Barefaced Bass website and thinking that the Super Twelve might be an option for me. I honestly don't mind paying $1500 for it and getting it shipped out here if it can bust air and save my backbone. Does anyone have any experience with these?
