Speaker Recommendation

Hey guys,

I'm a bass player turned gypsy guitarist. I have a great bass amp. I also see guitarists use - an Acoustic Image Focus II R. Can anyne recommend a speaker to use with this for guitar? None of my bassc cabinets sound that good.

    Get an extended range Reazer's Edge cabinet. Djangobooks sells them. A perfect match with your amp.

    Stringswinger - good Idea.

    Personally I use a (ancient) Coda.

    I'd consider a hat box (Harvie S designed speaker from Acoustic Image). My usual bassist has one and we have run through it together on occasion.

    What might be important to mention here- what kind of pick-up/mic are you using? Playing Rhythm or leads?

    I use only Mics (dpa and rode) and really only play rhythm with this set up (and use an ampeg with my magnetic pickups on archtops).

    Thanks for the replies. This looks good:

    I need to figure out a pickup as well. I haven't played out much yet - so hasn't been an issue but the two times I did play out with a pickup I used one of these iRig Acoustic stage things and it sounded pretty terrible! I eventually got a decent sound with the Acoustic Image head and a bass cabinet which has an 8, 5 and tweeters but it wasn't that great....I think I'll start with that speaker and assuming the IRig acoustic sounds just as bad I'll then look at some clip on system - I don't want to cut into the wood on this Polak I am using. I want to be able to play both rhythm and lead.
