- Current Setup:
Ampeg SVT-3 Pro, Ampeg 810E cabinet, Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray (3 EQ) in Sparkle blue. Spectraflex Cables, Digitech bass Squeeze and Sansamp BDDI Programable. Heavily Modified OLP MM-2 Bass (Custom Finish, Bartolini P pick up installed, and other odds and ends...), blue flamed maple Guild pilot 4 string (pie server headstock), Hondo (Did so much work on it, it now plays like a LEGITIMATE INSTRUMENT! =P) acoustic/electric bass, Squier Jazz bass (in pieces), Ibanez Ergodyne EDB 600 (also in pieces...)
And... plenty of other things I can't think of right now!
- Previously Owned Gear:
Kustom 410H Cabinet: Sold it when I bought my 810E (had no need for it). SICK speaker cabinet... Awesome bass response, built TOUGH and was more than I could ever asked for. The cons: Bigger than most 4x10's (but that is the reason I feel it sounded so much better) so its bulk and hard to move around, 8ohm impedance limited the amount of wattage I could push through it... Would've been nice if it was wired at 4 ohms.
Fender BXR 200 Head: Very nice sounding solidstate bass head. 200 watt's at 4 ohms. Had excellent built in chorus and the EQ section was superb. Cons: only 200 watts... while that was a LOUD 200 watts, it still was very lacking in large venues. I bought mine used 4 years ago, and it was beat to hell then... this held up very very well for the time I had it, but started to loose power twoards the end of the time I owned it (probably just normal wear in tear in the amp). Pick one up if you can!
Behringer BX3000HD: Behringer has the reputation they do for a good reason. Lax business ethics and poor quality do have an effect on a product after all. BE THAT AS IT MAY: This head is NOT top of the line, but it does allow You to have a decent sound at a reasonable price. I used one for the better part of a year (was loaned to me by a friend), and while It wasn't the most beautiful sound, It did get the job done.
