So, I have a gear question. I'm not expecting someone here to be able to 100% answer everything, so I'll specifically look at a bass forum next, but I guess it can't hurt.
My fiancé is crazy and ordered a custom made, extremely nice bass for me because he realized how much fun I'm currently having and how much I'm enjoying music again. But obviously I don't really want to play that thing through a 100€ practice amp. What I found is the HoTone nano Thunder Bass, a 5W SS bass amp head that can drive basically any cabinet combination out there (4Ohm - 16Ohm). I was thinking about pairing that with a 4x10 cabinet (Gallien Krueger CX 410) or a 2x10, so I should (in theory) get high quality audio and proper gear without driving my neighbours into madness and, when I get the chance to play with other people, I can just switch out the amp for something better and have a fully functional bass rig.
Basically, does that sound like a decent idea? It should minimise unnecessary spending on a "good" combo amp that I'll probably not use once I have a full setup and the nano can also be used as a headphone amp or pre-amp. Judging by reviews and forum posts the nano does reproduce good sound at low noise levels, but isn't that cabinet dependent? And lastly, does someone maybe have experience with the Gallien Krueger CX cabinets?
