My step-son just got his first bass, but he has nothing amp wise, I can't afford to get him something decent retail, don't feel like cruising pawn shops for something dirty and overpriced.
Here's the deal, I've got an Electrovoice Artistocrat corner horn, I pulled the TRX12B driver (to sell and fund the project). I can come up with a 6L6 (or family) mono tube integrated - but whats a reasonable 12" driver ($50 - $100) that anyone might recommend? I can read specs, just looking for experience with overall tone. I've never built my own, I always just went out and bought an Ampeg for my bass needs.
Any suggestions? I'm going to start browsing Selenium, Peavy, and EV. I think AES still has Jensen Alnico remakes and Celestion - I just have no idea what to even look at.
