    If you had an unlimited budget, what what would your setup be?

    With an unlimited budget - I'd start with a nice new sports car to not haul gear with. :D

    One can always dream. But oh, what a dream that would be.

    2 Duallies, and an array of tube heads to accompany them to choose from!

    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.

    Preamps:
    Reiner Amplification ("JGR") all-tube
    SansAmp VTRM
    SansAmp RBI
    SansAmp RPM
    Ampeg SVP-Pro
    SWR Interstellar Overdrive

    Cabinets:
    Bergantino NV610
    Bergantino HS210 (x2)
    Bergantino NV115
