    A Son of Bertha has arrived used at the local crappy music store. I could probably steal it for around 300. My current rig is:

    Hartke 5000
    SWR WM 2x10
    SWR WM 1x15

    I could:

    Add it to the low end of my bi amp
    Add it to the high end for mids and the horn (wm horns are s*%t)
    Replace the WM1X15 with it for rehearsal.

    I play a 5 string, and my band does classic/modern rock covers.

    Should I buy it?

    Replacing the whole rig (preferable) is not an option.
  2. I had a SOB for a while and used it with an Eden 210XLT.It sounded good and added bottom to the 210 which supprised me because the XLTs go very low anyway.I got the urge to use 12s so I sold it.I think the SOB is the same cabinet as your WM but with a better horn and 15.I dont know if you will hear a real big difference but I know the SOB sounded very good with my five strings and even worked pretty well as a stand alone.I payed $350 for mine at a Music Go Round and thought I got a good deal.$300 sounds really good.

    The Son of Bertha should be a considerable improvement on the Workingman 15. Better cabinet construction, and better components(and increased power handling). That is a good price too.
