So I'm trying to update my gear to stuff more pro-level, instead of what I've been using to jam with buddies in garages and such. Originally, I wanted to get a Genz-Benz ShuttleMAX 12.2 and two UB410s for this crazy set-up idea I had. But I was quickly educated that this would not work, and fry my set-up (essentiallly, I wanted to plug my laptop right into the cabs. Durp). Since that got canned, I'm questioning if I want to get a 12.2, or just a 9.2. I definitely want to a get a UB410 cab and one of those amps. I like the tone controls, solid-state or tube channels, and the Aux-In. I have a Moog Minitaur I plan on running into that Aux-In (I'll only be playing one instrument at a time, not both at once). And I can only afford one cab and an amp, at the moment (or rather, near future...). What I'm concerned about is expandability. Is 900 watts and a 410 enough? I tend to think it is. But then I think of how frustrated I get when I play with a guitarists whose only musical virtue is that he plays louder than (and often on-top of) everyone. If I went for the 12.2, it would leave me room to add another cab (either a UB212, or another 410 stacked on top). Thoughts on mixing a 212 with a 410? Another thing to consider is that I want to use the Minitaur to come in with some sustained room shaking, panty loosening bass. Think a 410 can handle that? But then, maybe I'm getting waaayy ahead of myself. I'm not even in a band yet. Just got people I like to jam with and keep telling them we should try and get some gigs, but no one really wants to. I've been passed over twice by bands that just made the worst guitarist play bass. Neither because of how I play, just simply because the one guy is a buddy. Ain't it a pain being a bassist in a guitarist's world?
