1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. We are currently evaluating the "One Post Per Classified Ad" policy. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Gallien Krueger 1001RB-II amp through Gallien Krueger 4x10 RBH. Mesa M-Pulse 600 or M6 carbine through an older Diesel 4x10. Also have an Ampeg 2x10 with eminence drivers.
    I like to run a dirty sound and a clean sound. Dirty is the GK1001RBH+Ampge 2x10 with a Fulltone bassdrive==>Sansamp DI==> Bass big muff depending on how much drive I want. Clean is either the M-Pulse or Mesa M6 run clean.
    I'm not big on effects. I use a Sansamp bass D.I. or an MXR M-80 bass D.I depending on the application.
