    Anyone have any thing to say about these amps? Please no comments about tweeters, because I don't use 'em.

    With 4x10s I've played, E string notes all sound consistent and smooth. Some may prefer this, but I want definition and a little bit of "flubbing" that sounds more like the string when you listen to it unplugged.

    Would a 2x15 help or would it just be really boomy and even more woofy?

    I have not found the Big Bertha to be boomy or woofy at all, it is very tight and ficused all around...its my favorite SWR cab.

    Maybe you might like an 18? Big ben or something like that? SWR's seem fairly tight, if you want "flubbing" you may need to look at different brands.

    I think what you're describing is kind of like what I think the Bag End Deep 1x15 sounds like. :)

    Consider checking one of them out.

    Big Bertha's are great cabs--so are Big Ben's.
