I am really interested in buying one of these to create my first real gigging rig. I want an old school sound that can make your bowels release and thought this would be a good way to go. Aside from the weight (>100lbs), are there any other concerns I should look at with this cabinet? I was thinking of pairing it with either a Groove Bass head or the Traynor YBA200. Unfortunately, I have not found a place in the Chicagoland area that stocks any of these really. I play fast ska/punk music with running bass lines. I like to slap, but is is NOT a priority as I never use it with the bands I play in. I want a warm sound, but I want it to be versatile and able to cut through a couple of guitarists playing half stacks or large combos. I like ampeg, but think that sound is over-used and not very versatile. GK and SWR is a little sterile for my likeing, but the SWR 350 was nice. If anybody knows a store around Chicago (preferably the Western suburbs) that stocks Traynors and Yorkvilles, please let me know. I was quoted $615 (American) each for Traynor head and XC808. I think that is a fair price for the cab, but I've heard of the head selling for cheaper. I seem to be rambling, so I'll try to bring it all together. I want an old school sound (I play a p-bass or a jazz bass depending on my mood) but I want versatility as well. Is this a good cab to consider? I think I've read enough on here about the heads to know that they are pretty well liked. I'm always open to suggestions, but I want big sound (to compensate for small size elsewhere?) Either way, I'll listen to whatever advice you gus have for me. Thanks a lot even just for reading this whole post.
