Provided gear just a little commentary Certain Rehearsal spots ($11 to $15/hr.) typically are lopsided on the bass rig. Almost every place I play, the provided bass rig in each room tends to be some sort of combo amp while the guitarists get a 412, a tube head or an obnoxiously loud solid-state head. Every time I end up using my rig just so I will not run the risk of killing the combo. I dont understand why certain people think a bass combo is great for a hearing yourself when facing a 412 .. Granted, I dont need to be super loud, its just the combo amps do not get very loud and I tend to find the limit within seconds. There was also a gig I did with a backline bass rig was an Eden WT800 head and two Eden 410xlt cabs. The guitarists all got 50 watt solid state combos with a single 12 on them. They sounded AWFUL. I sounded thunderous! So I came to the conclusion: Scenario 1 Guitarist bought the gear Scenario 2 ANGRY bassist bought the gear.
