O.K I Have decided to up upgrade my amp from a 15 watt SX to a Warwick 5.1 solid state amp (500 watts RMS) and a Warwick 411 Pro Cab (600 watts) this should cost me around $1500 NZ or 1200US. Just wan't to know if this is a good choice and any personal experiences ect. this is the most i want to spend on a head and cab package so please don't recomend anything that costs more.

Cheers

Are you going to be playing gigs or anything like that, because I think that is a lot of wattage for just playing at home.

I play in a church band in a very large church probably bout 2 and a half basketball courts in size, but if I don't need as much wattage as this then what would you recomend.

P.S
will probably start to gig pretty soon anyways so I would want a cab that wont need up grading for quite a while.

I have a ProFet 3.2 head and I have to say, it's brings out and awesome tone into my Ashdown cab
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

Thats fine then if you're gonna start gigging soon and you're playing at a large church so I would say just go with your choice.

I think you're making a great choice, I would totally recommend that rig. Warwick amps, along with their basses, are extremely high-quality. They're just an acquired taste.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

remember though, the goal with bass is to get the tone you want and the volume you need while pushing the amp as little as possible

it's a damn site easier to turn down a loud amp than turn up a quiet amp

One I get past about 1.5 on my, amp, the tone barely changes, until it distorts. It is far better to have a bass amp that you can keep to household volumes (damn near any amp) than to have one that is a bit too small for the gig you are playing.
