50watts is more than enough. I never have my amps turned up past half no matter how big the gig, except maybe on some of the outdoor things we do.james on bass said:Tried to talk him into a 2x12 Avatar cab - he claims to have needed a Marshall 4x10 on top of a Marshall 4x12.
Like I said, I'm just a humble bass player, but 50W of tubey goodness into a 2x12 cab and a LesPaul is what I'd GAS for if I played the thinner strings.
As for the stacks...he he he...I understand where he is coming from, gotta love the stacks for looks if nothing else. There is a difference in sound over a straight 2x12 but I hate humping that much gear around.
