Given that there two types of bassist, I am the type that wants a lightweight portable rig - but without sacrificing volume and tone (within reason)! I started my quest with a Fender 2x10 combo, the 400 Pro. It was a pretty nice sounding amp with a built in Korg rack tuner, decent volume and just about perfect for most small to medium-sized gigs...buuut it was 80 lbs...and too combo-ey! So I head to the guitar store and spend the better part of a saturday trying everything they had in stock. I was about to walk out with the Genz Benz 6.0 Shuttle 12T 'Combo' but ended up taking the 210T instead. 41 lbs. total, 3.75 lbs. amp head, 37.25 lbs. cab - SWEET. ...buuut when I played with two guitars and drums, it just wasn't LOUD enough! I loved the tone of the GB but I felt that the 210 cab that's married with that Shuttle just wouldn't cut it any better volume-wise than the fender. Long story short, I ditched the cab and kept the Shuttle 6.0. Picked up a NeoX 212T off of Craiglist - 50 lb 2x12- SWEET. Now I'm playing with the 6.0 through the NeoX 212T and just can't help but think that the extra 300 watts from the 9.0 would be just right. Before I pull the trigger on the 9.0, does anyone have any other recommendations? what are YOU running through your 212s? Let's see some pics if you've got!
