    I think I'm at a good place as far as setting up my main rig. I have the Fender American Deluxe Jazz V - SWR 700 WORKINGPRO - Eden D410XLT cab and Zoom B3 effects.

    If you don't have anything else to do, share yours (main rig only)

    Bass depends on the gig but probably the Deusenberg Starplayer or my humble but lovable MIJ P Bass.

    My bigger gig amp is a Mesa M-Pulse through a Berg HS410 but I usually get by with a MBF 500 --> HS 210

    Basses

    99% of the time, it's the Sadowsky Vintage 4 string
    I have a recording session coming up that I'll use my 75 fretless Precision.
    If I'm gigging in France, I use my 80's Squier Jazz MIJ out of convenience.

    Amps
    Strangely enough, my main amp these days for my regular Monday night pub gig is a Schertler Jam 150 Pro. 150 watts into an 8 inch speaker. It sounds so warm. I run vocals through it as well.

    I have Roland CB100 that is a great amp. Roland is well known for making great keyboards, pedals, guitar amps. I ever ever considered Roland for bass amps. Mne was bought as a rehearsal amp and it's seen more gigs than my Markbass set up.

    The big amp is a rare Markbass head. Rare in North America. It was out here long before Markbassa came to the states. I run it into an SWR Bassic 2-Way. Haven't used this set up in over two years.

    Main basses are an 05 Upton Hawkes upright, 09 MIA Precision, 76 Precision with PJ pickups, and 95 P Lyte with EMG's. They go into a series of pedals, then into an A-Designs REDDI tube DI, and then into whatever Ampeg amp and cab I feel like bringing, usually a new V4B or Heritage SVT-CL, into a Heritage 810e or two SVT 210av's.

    Ampeg SVT Classic Master @ 3:00 , Gain between 9:00 to 11:00 depending on venue. Classic 8 10 e cab. Fender P Bass with Chrome flats , Tone @ 4. Vol between 7 and 8. (strat. knobs with numbers on 'em) If the venue has wonky electrics , I'll use a Peavey Mark 6 s.s. head. If there's a lot of steps involved , they get the Peavey head and a Peavey 2 15 cab.(Haven't had to do this in quite a while) XLR out of Ampeg head or DI out of Peavey head from Pre out for FOH gigs.

    It depends on the gig really.
    For classic rock cover band gigs...

    Currently a Lakland 55-02, GB Shuttlemax 9.2, Berg AE410. Sprinkle in a little flanger, envelop filter, and a ParaEQ and I'm ready for anything.

    Blues gigs get a different treatment...

    G&L SB1, GB Streamliner, and a Berg AE410 (or 210 depending on venue size). Pedal board is usually hooked up, but seldom used for anything but the tuner.

    These days, it's usually a Steamliner 900 into a PH215 - basses are usually a Sterling 5 HS, paired up with either an '08 MIA Hot Rod Jazz, '08 Am St Jazz, or '06 Gibson T-bird... although I sometimes gig a Music Man SUB5 or Peavey Foundation 5, and pair one of those up with either an '09 Highway One P Bass, Music man SUB Sterling or SUB...

    It depends on the situation and my mood at the time, actually...
