    Probably either my Boss ME-50B pedal or my Carvin RL 210T cab. I bought them around 8-10 years ago and they have been the mainstays of my live rig (along with my main Carvin bass) ever since.
  7. Very lightly used SBMM Ray 34, $350.00

    Thanks - I know it!

    Picked her up about 4 1/2 years ago & she's been my #1 ever since. Worth every penny. :D

    Since this is about all kinds of gear, I'm moving this thread from Basses to Miscellaneous.

    TRex Squeezer tube compressor. Not only a great, full featured comp, but also a great tone tool. Had it for over 5 yrs, always ON when playing, even at home alone.

    I bought a 67 Gibson SG in grad school, got it out of a pawn shop from the rhythm guitarist for $200. An investment. I'm a mediocre guitarist. I like my Ibanez SR300 Fretless, $300.
    I'm jonesing for a Danelectro Longhorn currently.
