Post your practice rig
Hey just wanted to post my little practice rig setup and see what others are using as a bedroom/basement practice rig. Mine is a Fender Rumble 100 15" combo, Behringer Xenyx 1002B Mixer and a laptop to run drum loops to the input of the amp. The mixer doesn't really get used unless I wanna play around with some effects, but I could have a guitar player and myself plug in to the mixer and run it out to the bass amp for a practice session. Let's see your practice rigs!
Mine is a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.2 with a 12" Genz Benz cab.
Plenty loud and super portable. Nothing like 300watts of tube power, but still a great practice rig.
Oops, forgot a pic:
Mine is a Line 6 Bass Pod and Sony 7506 Headphones
Home: Warwick Blue Cab 30.1 and Boss GT6B
Band practice: Laney RB9, Laney RB410 and pedalboard
Line 6 studio 10
or JBL G2
Either work great for small gigs too. Both have xlr outs.
Fender Bassman 25. Great little practice amp. It is handy because you can run a computer or MP3 into it via the stereo RCA input. Also, you can either run through the speaker or use headphones that bypass the speaker. So, you can hear both your music and the bass through either the speaker or headphones. I think they changed them recently so you may have to get one used to get it set up like this one.
Fender Rumble 75!
Modified with Emenence Basslite S2012 Neo woofer and cab lined with Sonic Barrier acoustic foam. Sounds Fantastic! :)
Practice rig in my room is two amps that I go back in forth with.
GK 400RBII - 200watts @4ohms
Ampeg PF500 - 500watts @4ohms
Avatar SB112 rated 500watts @4ohms
This sits on a Auralex great gramma
ProTools + Sony 7506 headphones.
For practice I plug my bass into the line-in of my computer and use headphones. For rehearsals and gigs I'll use any combination of these:
Fender Bassman 100
GK 410 Neo
Carvin RL 210
Carvin RL 115
What I'd like to have is one of the new microbass heads. I'll have to save up some more gig money. ;)
Thank you for your indulgence,
It's cool to see a couple other Fender bass combos posted. My Rumble 100 1x15 is nothing special and wont blow you away sound and power wise, but it really gets the job done and is more than adequate. For it's price point, it is a great amp and can be used for small live gigs. I've tested out an Ampeg BA115 combo and it had better sound but they are more expensive new and tend to hold there value better in the used market...as they should for the better sound quality. But, the Fender Rumble series gets you a darn good bass amp for a good price!
TC Electronic RH750/RS210/RS212.
A bit excessive, but sounds great. I also use it for most gigs these days. Also very convenient for using various basses, which I do a lot at home.
My other rig is in our rehearsal studio, the TC rig sits at home between gigs.
For home practice, I still like my ancient GK200rcb head into a home-made 15" cab with an EV15M speaker in it. Sounds really good at condo-friendly volumes, and doesn't require any tube warm-up time.
SWR Baby Blue II with an EBS Microbass II. This essentially gives me 4 different channels/sounds available at the touch of a button.
This is also my primary recording rig.
I use this '67 B-15-N.
I have two practice rigs at home:
#1: Fretless acoustic bass guitar on a stand next to the couch.
#2: P bass (and a Telecaster) --> Korg Pandora --> Boss looper --> SWR 10" combo amp
