versatile 4x10 and amp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by BassSeven, Nov 4, 2002.


  1. hey all you talkbassers, i thought i might get some help here. I want to get a 4x10 cab and an amp head around 250-400 watts. It needs to be heard over a distorto-geetar half stack(maybe two) , but the catch, I need it under about $800, new or used though.

    It might help to know that at closeby at stores I have acces to SWR, Ampeg, some peavey, and limited ashdown (new). there is a guitar center nearby as long as a couple smaller local chains with limited merchandise.

    I need volume accustomed to rock (hard rock) in a medium sized gig, like a club or a small outdoor performance.

    Am I asking too much for too little?

    things I have seen: (new, $999: SWR workingmans 4004 and 4x10)

    Pleeeeeze help me with any info possible.
    Is the SWR WM4004 and 4x10 too quiet?
    Perhaps i need more than one 4x10?

    Thanks in advance, i hope the info helps.
