My current church gig is played through an SWR 350 maroon face amp and an SWR 1x15. Hooked into the house but most of my sound comes through my amp. Medium sized room with up to 100 people. Everything is fine. I just leave it there.

We are moving in June to a middle school auditorium. Equipment will be set up and torn down, and stored iin a truck. I probably won’t be able to store the cab in the truck, so i am looking for suggestions for either a small light cab, or maybe a combo. I have an Eden WTX260 head to carry in & out. A GK MB150-112 has been suggested so far.

By small and portable, I mean maybe 30 pounds or under that this 70 year old coot can lift in and out of my Accord and tote on a luggage cart.

Not sure if this is enough amp for the gig, but it’s 8lbs under your target weight.

There are lots of good, small combos out there. Thank heavens for class D amps and neo speakers. Leftee's Rumble suggestion is good. If you have already been connecting into the PA, you only have to have enough umph for stage monitoring. Let the PA do the heavy lifting.

Traynor (traynoramps.com) also has some very attractive light weight bass combos. Even their 200 watt 115 only weighs 31 lbs.

Carvin also used to have some good offerings, but (sigh) they're out of the amp business.

I checked out the Rumble 100 today. Definitely a strong contender. The store also had an Ampeg cab, an svt-210av, that was only a few pounds heavier.

I have a Gallien Kreuger MB200 1x12 combo and it does extremely well playing small clubs and jams. It has plenty of clean punch and weighs less than 25 lbs.

Find one used and save a bucket of cash.

For similar situations I use a Roland Cube Bass 100. It is a discontinued model and the last one I bought was about $225. They weigh 36 pounds and the tone and volume you get will blow your mind. Handles a B string with authority.

The more recent model is the Cube Bass 120 and it has the reputation of not sounding as good as the 100. This is what I have been told but I have not personally tried the 120 watt version.

the new Rumble 100 is a great option , it is really light and sounds great and has builtin DI out for the PA

My daughter just used mine this morning for an exam and it actually weighed less than the bass !

I picked up a TC Electronic RS210 cabinet that works really well with an Eden WTX260 that I had and the WTX500 that I currently use.
