That ampeg looks sexy, but way out of my price range at this point.
As for as the 4x10 that is something I will consider in the future, maybe, but let me break this down for ya'll:
* I live on the second and third floors of a house. All of my music stuff is housed on the 3rd floor. I no longer have 3 dudes that I'm living with to help me haul my music shit up and down stairs. I have not lifted weights for ~ 2+ years and have very little core and upper body strength.
* Band 1 practices in the basement of the singer/guitarist's house. The stairway is pretty narrow and cramped, she has two huge dogs always in the way when I'm loading stuff in, and she's in the process of finishing her already tiny basement, leaving us with an even smaller practice space. Additionally, she suffered a traumatic brain injury around Thanksgiving, and we've only practiced twice since then. We're supposed to play in May or before then but she is having to relearn a lot of things, gets tired, has vertigo, and I could tell the last time she played, she was forgetting lots and not playing as well, so it may be on the back burner for a while.
* Band 2 is established w/ a year or two worth of shows under their belts and songs already written and only recently added a guitar and invited me to play bass. It was previously just synths and drums. Main dude is leaving for a month due to work, so we're looking at March practicing at the earliest, though I'm trying to learn the songs via their reverb nation and hope to get together w/ the other guys in the interim so I can be caught up in practice. They are actually good musicians, while I am not.
So considering the lugging huge shit around up two huge flights of stairs, one band possibly not playing again for quite a stretch, and the other band theoretically kicking me out cuz I suck too bad, I really don't want to spend a whole lot or commit to much. Just something I can have for a while until I see where things are going, and upgrade if I get the itch to do so. Plus I do have a song I have to record as a reward for this super secret project I'm working on...you can friend or msg. me on the facespace if yr curious.
Thanks everyone for all their help!!!
