    Gallien Krueger 1001RB-II amp through Gallien Krueger 4x10 RBH. Mesa M-Pulse 600 or M6 carbine through an older Diesel 4x10. Also have an Ampeg 2x10 with eminence drivers.
    I like to run a dirty sound and a clean sound. Dirty is the GK1001RBH+Ampge 2x10 with a Fulltone bassdrive==>Sansamp DI==> Bass big muff depending on how much drive I want. Clean is either the M-Pulse or Mesa M6 run clean.
    I'm not big on effects. I use a Sansamp bass D.I. or an MXR M-80 bass D.I depending on the application.
