The cons are: It's heavy, expensive, and somewhat complicated.
The pros are: it's loud, and not just loud but clean and loud. I find that the best way to avoid volume wars is for everybody to have a clear, focused tone. Plus with LOTS of wattage available, I don't have to run the rig at 100% of it's capability, which I believe will prolong its lifespan.
I still bring out the small, integrated head for acoustic gigs and practices where the full rig would be overkill. I'll find a pic of the stage rig tonight, I know there's a good one on Facebook.

I have had two good PAs to work with though.... on Saturday's gig I completely forgot to turn the power amp on for Set 2 and didn't even notice for a couple of songs. So if my amp can do an adequate job when turned off, 225 watts of tube power should be plenty!
Walknbluez wrote:BassplayerLB, how would you describe the highs with that setup? I have someone who is selling a Bergantino AE410 and I told him I was contemplating between that and Eden cabs and said he has also had Eden cabs but he described the Eden highs as "harsh" (but of course he wants me to buy his cab). What bass do you play? How does that setup work for small gigs when you have to keep volume down?
Do you have any clips of you playing so I can get an idea of how it sounds?
