A lot of bass players repurpose old 5W Epiphone Jrs for that very purpose. I've only gone as low as 15W, which surprisingly was too loud to overdrive in my apt.
I'm gonna try it sometime over the holiday weekend, once my amp sells; the owner lives just a few miles up the hill. Want to run the idea by the jam host (mando player) and the lead guitar player tonight and make sure they're both onboard, which I expect they will be. I'm sure the lead player would want to use it at the jams sometimes too, and I could snarf his sweet old Gibson acoustic on those tunes. The $64K question is how it sounds with a slide, and none of the online demos I've found so far cover that at all. It sounds killer on the demos for comping old school swing though, both jazz and country styles. And the more I can push the jam in those directions, the better!Looks cool! Have you tried playing it yet?
Oh man, wish I had been interested in any form of playing back when I was in school. Starting in a legit big band at age 65 was pretty danged challenging.We're thinking about getting my daughter her own clarinet. She really enjoyed doing band but had to return the instrument at the end of the school year.
