Folks, In the never ending quest for double bass amplification, I have discovered a new, and yes, affordable setup that I really enjoy. Excuse my long winded preface. I have been dealing with tonal consistency issues with my Ischell and AI rig. I play a steady gig that has awful stage coupling. The only answer I have found is elevating a speaker. I have owned a whole litany of cabinets and amplifiers. Acoustic Image has actually been my favorite for many years, and I still love Rick's gear and his customer service. I have even gone so far as to create an add-on appendage to pole mount the AI cabinet . Through this journey of inconsistent amplified tone I have found that I prefer the following: 1) I like having my cabinet elevated.(ala Larry Grenadier) 2) I like having the preamp controls nearby, or to my right for quick adjustment. I have a tour this spring of Germany and will be playing a Chadwick. The Ischell just isn't convenient in this application as I have to tear the bass down everyday. So, I will be using a Full Circle(which I used to use). I decided to purchase a Headway EDB-2 for the tour as well and absolutely love it. Enter - my curiosity to find a good powered speaker. I heard Larry G. play my bass for a Mehldau trio show a few months ago and his amplified sound was "it". So, I did a quick internet search, and performed my due diligence on Talkbass, and found the Yamaha DBR10. The DBR10 is 23lbs. The frequency response is similar to the QSC speakers, and the DSP is very friendly to the double bass. All said, I purchased the EDB-2 for $320(open box) and the DBR10 for $308 (open box). I do mount it on a mini pole mount stand(recommended by Rick Wolff). With the Full Circle this rig sounds great to my ears. Super consistent. I really enjoy the natural sound, and the flexibility of this little rig. I haven't used it with the Ischell yet. I know it will make it even better. I just thought I'd share my findings with you all.
