Well ! I'm almost there.
I followed everyone's suggestion, did tons of reading on Amps, Cabs and Combos, asked lots of questions, tried out some stuff of course, kept in consideration what you guys said as to “ buy as much power as you can afford, and here where I am with all of this.
In my choice I considered the following, Sound as a top priority ( for what I can afford ), Wattage, Price is always the show stopper and brings me back to reality, Visual effect because to me it matters, Having something portable was the least of my concerns, but this is not a bad package.
For the Amp Head, I’m going with a Yorkville XS400H 400W Bass Head 2 x 8 ohms with Tube Preamp, from what I read / reviews and seen / heard so far, this Amp head offers all the bang for the buck$$$.
For the Cab, well in this case it’s going to be Cabs for the sound I’m looking for ;)
For the Punchy Chest Feeling, I’m going with the Yorkville XC210 8 ohms Cabinet, this 2 x 10 inch mid Cab packs a nice punch.
Combine with, for the low end effect plus extra output, I’m going with the Yorkville XC115XC 8 ohms Bass Extension Cabinet, this 1 x 15 inch bottom Cab vibrates the fixtures of the walls.
Let’s see how the neighbors will fair over the coming months rotf
I have decided to purchase new for the following reasons. The good used stuff is scarce or pricey, plus Yorkville is changing over all there brand name to Traynor, so good deals are to be had on what ever is left in the stores right now, for a little more than the used equipment pricing in my area, I can get all new with full 2 years warranty.
The head has been ordered ( store transfer ) and the two cabs I want are on the floor, so in the next week or so, I should have all of this plugged in and making noise at my place lol :rockon2:
Any and all comments are welcome.
