    Why have one when you can have 2?

    Now THAT is what I call a real bass rig! Step aside, tin foil 4-pound Class D toys! The BOSS is in town! Uh huh, dat's right!

    I don't normally have G.A.S., but this is making me feel...... jealous?
     
  8. Man I'd love to feel that thing punching me in the back at a gig. Now I REALLY want a second 810 for my VR!
     
  9. I see that pic and it reminds me of the "good old days"!!! :D

    You know....when men were men and no one minded carting a big rig to a job....but then again, in those days, we also carted a Hammond B3, a leslie 145, our own PA (Altec voice of the theater cabs - 4 of them) and a ginormous drum kit...Marshall stacks, etc etc....and, we had to fit all of that into a Chevy van!

    Hell, the bass rig was actually the "easy" part! :D
     

  10. Our keyboard player is still luggin' his B3 and Leslie cab around! When it comes down to it, nothin' sounds like the real thing.

    .....and the orange cart things just stayed fastened on the B3.:) That stage setup sounded so nice! Folks should hear that now.
     
  14. Yep...His dollies stayed on the organ.It wasn't really that big a deal to haul it around. 4 of us would grab it and off we'd go. We DID have a few jobs that included stairs and then it was a challenge, but hey! We were young and really didn't give much of a damn.....:D

    But seriously, I absolutely hate it when I see a Rock and Roll outfit with little boxes on the stage.....I dunno, it just seems to take some of that "badass" visualization out of the equation. I mean, they still sound fine, but it always seems like something is missing....on the "other" hand, bands (like KISS) for example, that have banks of phony amps sitting on stage are just ridiculous (IMO)

    Ahhh, the "TV and 2 Fridge" setup, now that's entertainment!!
    Best rig I ever played through (sadly it wasn't mine though.)
    Congrats Sir!

    You should stack them vertically for better dispersion.

    Yup, the SVT experience as it was originally intended...

    Add a P Bass with a fresh set of heavy nickel rounds and boom!

    I finally jammed with this for the first time tonight and WOW! I really loved playing one of these with my SVT but two REALLY opens it up. Everything sounds just a little smoother, thicker, and even more present in the mix without being that much louder... My '65 Jazz is REALLY nasty sounding, and the SVT /w 6146B's has some more bite and grit too... pair that with 16 low power Alnicos and I totally take the place of a guitar and bass. Loving it.
