After 15 years of hauling a big 3 piece rig, I'm down-sizing to a combo.
I play passive fretless and active fretted 6-string basses.
Any recommendations for combos around $500?
Just needs to be loud enough to play with a "finesse" drummer.

what are you used to using (past rig?)

I think you'll be suggested the Acoustic B200, I like how it sounds myself, very transparent
Lord Gold feeds from your orifices and he wants to see you sweat.
Lord Gold probes you publicly and makes your pussy wet.
Now say his name.....

what are you used to using (past rig?)

A Peavey Mark VIII XR with 2 10s, 2 12s, and highs running through a 30 watt tube guitar amp.
It was a loud monster, but not practical for they type of gigs I do now.

Found a used Fender Bassman 250 for $400. It was exactly what I was looking for! Thanks for the suggestion.
