Workingmans 4004 any thoughts?

  1. Anyone use it I was thinking of buying one I like the sound. whats it like for gigging in halls eg school halls etc and whats a good middle range cab to match it?
     
  2. my master plan is to get the wm4004 with the workingmans 2x10 and the 1x15. that way it's versatile, and easier to transport than a 4x10. that kind of setup should be plenty for any small-medium gig.

    I've been using the 4004 since April and am very well saaisfied with it. I've used it in a couple or three bar gigs and it was all I needed. I like the E.Q. because you don't really need it. Just set everything flat and it sounds great in all the kinds of music that I play, which is everything from rock to bluegrass. Just a touch of bass control on my passive P-type and it sounds good.

    I reccomend it highly.

  4. i dont remember what the prices of the WM series, but i know its not that large of a difference from the professional series, which i know is a HUGE step better than the WM series, keep that in mind. Save a little longer, and you get much better quality.

    In your shoes I'd look for a used Sm 400 or 500 in good condition,'cause you're getting a tube preamp and all around better construction.I found one (SM400S) for $479 in near new condition.

    Ditto. Also, I picked up a 350 in good condition with case for $300.
