So: I've been playing for a while now and am currently in a band I'm actually pretty serious about. Before you ask, we play kinda funk/rock/alternative/honestly I don't know how to describe it but basically the bass needs to be prominent in the kinda stuff that we do (and rightly so ). After an amp malfunction and thus a gig with a loaned 50W Kustom Combo I have come to the realisation that I need an amp. Something big. Well, I think... That's where all of you helpful, wonderful, handsome TalkBass users come in- I think I know what I want but I have close to no clue about wattage and resultant sound. What I think I want is an RB1001-ii Gallien Krueger head, with what would most likely be (Gallien Krueger) 115 and 212 neo (not MBE) cabs. This is based on having a looonnnngggg look at everything, tone and power and price and whatnot, and I know that a large piece of the TalkBass pie agrees that this stuff is pretty good. Thing is, it's quite a bit of money, and I don't really know how much power I'd actually need or use, and I'd rather keep the cost down to a minimum though it isn't the main issue. I welcome any advice or guidance you are willing to provide, including thoughts on possible purchases, though I'd like to stick with GK stuff as far as possible (love the sound). Oh, and we'd be playing mostly small to medium-sized pubs/clubs and the like, with the occasional outdoor thing and whatnot. I'd like enough power to keep me going for (ideally) a few years, not something so feeble I'd have to upgrade after a few months. Any (relevant) input would be received very gratefully- thanks in advance!
