    Current Setup:
    Main Setup:
    home built 8-string bass (extended range)
    Demeter VTPB-201S preamp
    Behringer DEQ2496 digital equalizer / processor
    Stewart World 1.2 power amp
    Acme B4 4 ohm
    Acme B2 8 ohm

    Upton Hawkes Hybrid Upright (though I play electric on jazz gigs whenever I can)

    Gear I still have but don't use much:
    Zon lightwave 6-string fretless
    2 home built 5-strings
    Bose PAS (1st generation) with 2 B1 subwoofers
    (The Bose with 2 B1's has a great sound for low to medium volume gigs but it just can't pump out the low end like the Acme B4 can. It's also more of a pain to transport and setup than the Acme B4 + rack. I've tried various combinations of the bose + acme and I can get a cool sound but transport is ridiculous)
    Favorite Genres:
    Jazz, Fusion, Prog Rock, Electronica
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Ralph Butler Band, random jazz gigs around St. Louis, MO
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Euphonic Audio CXL-112
    SWR Workingman's 12
    Modulus Quantum 6-string
