    I'm thinking of getting this as my first cab and head.Does anyone and any thoughts on these two or the Workingman's series?I know the Workingman's series have got to Mexico since their thing with Fender.Any opinons or facts or details or ANYTHING will be fine.
  2. What type of music do you play? What is your budget? Are you buying new or used?

    IMO the Workingman's series of amps and cabs are subpar value for the money that must be spent on them. In almost every case, I can recommend a better amp and cab combination for the money than SWR Workingman's series.

    I gigged for 3 years with a WM4004. I would have to say it is the most reliable amp I have ever owned. I now have a SWR Bass750 and to be honest, I could use the 4004 in place of it and not feel like it is lacking.
  5. Well, if you go used, you can probably get a head of any of the respective companies that you listed and then use an Avatar cab and come out a little further ahead.
