For a while now I’ve been thinking about downsizing my bass rig, which consists of an Ashdown EVO II 500 head and an Ampeg SVT 410HLF Cab. Now I really love this combination as that I feel that I finally found the tone I have always been striving for. Problem is I haven’t really used it in over 2 years and I hate to see it sit. In all honesty chances are I won’t be playing in a band where I need this much amp anytime soon. I’ve been wanted to get a nice combo, most likely in the GK or Fender variety, for quite some time but have resisted as that I haven’t been using the rig I have. At this point I have made up my mind to first sell the Ampeg 410, even though I love this cab dearly. Seriously, it is the best cab I have ever had, tone to die for, so I hate to part with it, but . . . I’m thinking sell the cab, keep the head, at least for now, paired with an Avatar 210 I also have, and use the cash from the Ampeg to partially fund a new combo. This way if I find a combo is not enough for some situations I still have the Ashdown head, and if the 210 cab isn’t cutting it for me either I can alway rent something bigger when I need it. So now the fun begins, checking out combo amps to find the right one for me! I’ll be sure to keep you posted on how it goes.
