    just go Aguilar and be satisfied and happy.

    or given that you're in NYC, and prolly dont like schlepping around lots o' gear, spend that extra and get an Epifani Ultralite 500 & Ultralite 3x10, and let your back be happy, too. :)

    It would narrow things down a bit to know what kind of sound you're after/what kind of music you want to do.

    There's a whole bunch of options in that price range.

    If you want clear and compact, you could get an iAmp-800 and a CxL-112.

    If you want a warmer sound, you could get a MB M-Pulse and a Bergantino HT210.

    How about conquering the bass world with a BBE BMax preamp, a QSC RMX1850HD, and a Bergantino HT322 (or an HT112 + EX112)?

    panazza, do you own that setup?


    *Apologies for jacking thread*

    Just im getting bored of my amp and I was considering that setup. My question, can the head go full tilt without distortion?
