I walked into the store today, looking for an extremely portable gig/studio combo with an DI-out. I saw on the site an EBS DROME 12, an old one. And tought: THAT'S THE ONE! Turned out I was wrong. I A/B'd it with my current combo, a Fender Rumble 75: The Rumble was lacking the clarity the EBS had (tweetertime?), but it was WAY more LOW, TIGHT and had a lot more PUNCH. The EBS was cool and stuff, but the rumble just punched you in the face. I cranked the EBS up real loud, to see if that did some punchy tricks. But it didn't. Problem with the Rumble was still it's portability. I'm not a strong/tall guy and the bulge on the back really make it umportable so it's impossible to really take it to a friends house for a jam or a practice or even up/down the stairs of my own house. The shopkeeper heard a conversation I had with my dad about the portability (I'm 17 and he's the one that needs to carry it up/down the stairs all the time, because I'd try that with my Rumble, I'd seriously fall to death) and pointed me a Ibanez Promethean. It was just what I was looking for! Tight, clear, VERY portable, DI out and a tweeter for the clarity! Take it to a gig or a jam is easy. It has a DI-out so it's easy to use as a monitor and it can handle an extension cab! I'm still reflecting it, because you could still really feel the cabinet of the Rumble, but maybe using a Fender Rumble series cab may do the trick (I'm thinking 2x15" ). Anyone with more experience might give me some info on this? I hope you guys have found this review helpful, altough I'm still kinda noobish in bass- and ampworld. Comments are greately appreciated! P.S. I hope my English wasn't too bad. I'm Dutch. Please point me at funky grammar and other wrong stuff, because I have an English writing exam this year. So any help is very welcome! Thanks, all.
