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. 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 ;)

    Current Setup:
    - '08 Schecter 004, strung w/Ken Smith Rock Masters (all the goodness of Roto 66's, but these last longer than 20 minutes)

    - '08 Schecter Stiletto Extreme 4 w/ Bartolini TBT preamp, strung w/GHS Pressurewounds

    - Rig 1; bass > Korg DT-10BK > Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso > Trace Elliott SMX Dual Compressor > etched/re-housed Fuzzrocious Grey Stache #87 > kid-painted Fuzzrocious Kaeden OD #2 > Line 6 M5 w/Ernie Ball VP Jr 25k as an expression pedal > '94 Trace Elliot AH130SM > Dr Bass 1260/Dr Bass 115LF *

    *both purchased used from the class-ads here, btw...which is the only way I'd recommend buying his cabs these days, unfortunately.


    - Rig 2; bass > Planet Waves tuner > BBE Opto Stomp > Catalinbread Hyper Pak #76 > Tronographic Rusty Box > Epiphone Valve Junior head (re-tubed) > Markbass Traveler 102P (all sitting on an On-Stage amp stand)


    - Elixir, Monster and custom Mogami cables

    ...and I keep the picks that I rarely use in an Altoids tin that has Curious George on the cover...honest, wanna see?
