If you had an unlimited budget, what what would your setup be?
Reeves 225 Head-Bergintino NV215.
Complete control over guitarist and drummers volume.
With an unlimited budget - I'd start with a nice new sports car to not haul gear with.
One can always dream. But oh, what a dream that would be.
I am very happy with my current setup. I own 2 US Built Ampeg SVT 6PRO heads, four US Built Ampeg 410HE cabs, 2 early 1970s SVT heads and 2 early 1970s SVT 810 cabs. I also have various Fenders, Spectors and Alembics.
2 Duallies, and an array of tube heads to accompany them to choose from!
Heritage SVT-CL with a Heyboer output transformer, Heritage 810e, and a REDDI for the house. Something like this, maybe:
My thoughts EXACTLY!!!!!
Verellen Meatsmoke into an Emperor 8x10 would be my dream.
Whatever it would be, it would be permanently set up in Abbey Road studio 2 with all their mics and outboard gear.
I have no complaints whatsoever about my current rig (Aguilar TH500, DB112, DB112NT), but if I was touring with some big band and didn't have to worry about lifting any of the stuff myself, I'd go with a DB751 and two DB212 cabinets. And a really good set of earplugs.
And man, I pity all the people on here who play with musicians who have volume problems. Maybe I'm lucky, but I've never had this problem with anyone I've ever played with except a couple drummers who I'd actually want to play louder (at least with their kick drum foot).
First step for me would have to be a bigger house... and also a roadie for the 70's SVT rig I'd get.
But I don't really want the SVT, I'm totally satisfied with the selection of preamps and cabinets I currently own.
Reiner Amplification ("JGR") all-tube
SWR Interstellar Overdrive
Bergantino HS210 (x2)
For me it would be a Peavey Classic 400 in to a fEARful 1515/66/1...
Mine kind of looks like this, because this one is mine...
