    I have sold and down size'd a lot of the bass gear that I have owned, I still feel the need to rattle houses, shake trailers, set off car alarms, and kill puppies/small children. Sometimes I like to show up at a park's and beach's and ruin birthday partys with bass.

    All opinions expressed in my posts are solely my own: I do not represent any other forums (of which I may or may not be a member), groups, or individuals although at times my views may resemble those of other entities.

    Favorite Genres:
    Clasic County, Classic rock, stuff like Sublime & RHCP, Fleetwood Mac, and stuff from the 80's when everyone was doing coke, basicaly the stuff on episodes of Miami Vice.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I play a lot Rock Smith. I use to go to play in public parks and at the beach a lot just for fun and because it's my right too. Once in a while I like to show up open mic nights to play originals with the band that I am in. Mostly I just practice and jam, I got some stuff lined up this summer that I am excited about at a couple of farmers markets and street fairs, a retirement community, and a homeless ministry where I donate some time.
    Previously Owned Gear:

    I use to have a Line 6 LowDown HD400 with a LowDown 410. I liked to mess around with the effects and I thought it sounded pretty good. Then I got a Ampeg Svt 7 Pro and a Svt 410hlf Classic that I eventually paired with a Ampeg SVT 15E. The SVT-15E is a 8ohm cab and the SVT 410hlf is a 4ohm cab so I dont think that I was supposed mix the ohms or use cabs together, but I did anyway and it sounded badass.

    I came across a Ampeg SVT 50 PRO ISOVENT and I really liked the way it sounded, so I traded the Line 6 setup I had for it. BTW best trade I ever did. I tried/tested out the SVT-50 PRO ISOVENT with a GK 1001RB II. When I hooked it up to the SVT 7 Pro that I had it sounded way different. So I got a hold of a GK 1001RB II and put the SVT 7 Pro away with the SVT 410hlf, even when I pulled the SVT 410hlf and the SVT-15E back out to see what they souned like, I continued to use the GK 1001RB II and not the SVT 7 Pro.

    I like the GK 1001RB II over any of the Ampeg solid state bass heads, or any othersolid state bass heads I have tried. I have two GK 1001RB II heads just in case something happens to one of them. I ended up trading the Ampeg Svt 7 Pro and the Svt 410hlf Classic for the Markbass CMD 102P and the Markbass 151HF that I have now.
    *UPDATE* I traded 1 GK 1001RB II for a Mesa Boogie Road Ready 610 bass cab to a fellow TB member, I love this thing it's built like a brick siht house.

    I traded the Ampeg SVT 15E I had toward a Ampeg SVT 610hlf Classic that I have now, and use somtimes.

    I gave the Ampeg SVT 50 PRO ISOVENT away to my Niece for her bass, and made my sister swear not to sell it. That cab is almost 20 years old and both my Wife and my sister think it's a heavy, old, dirty POS. My Niece is in love with it, she can't move it or take it anywhere though.

    I use to have a Markbass 106hf and I liked it alot, but I already had two Ampeg 6x10 cabs so I traded the Markbass 6x10 for a Mesa Eng PH215 and a PH210. When I find another PH210, I am going to stack one on top of each of my MB 151HF's and power them with either a Ampeg SVT VR or a Mesa Boogie 400+ Tube Head. ( I already did this cab combination 2 Power house 210's powered by a GK 1001rb 2 and MB 151HF's powered by an other Gk1001rb. It was more then what I expected it to be. Super loud, super clear, and should only be turned up and played out side) IMHO it's better and easier to just have a simple setup, but it's fun to just build a monster and make the neighbor's trees rattle.

    My music room was a revolving door of gear and bass guitars, I finally got rid of almost everything that I was not using by selling, bartering, or just giving it away mainly to my niece, then other family members or bass players in need.
    G.A.S. List:
    I always tell myself I am done, but I would not mind getting a hold of a:

    Bass Heads/cabs:
    Ampeg SVT VR, Ampeg SVT II, Markbass TTE 500, Mesa Boogie PH 6x10, Mesa Boogie Buster 200 210 combo.

    Rickenbacker 4003, German Warwick Thumb N/T, Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray Classic, 5 string Stingray or Sterling bass, a good Fender P or J that I like, and that likes me back. I am kind of partial to Mexicans.

    Touring cases/ guitar rack to store and keep all my bass gear in.
    Influences and Teachers:
    John Graham McVie, Michael Peter Balzary, Eric Wilson, Les Claypool, John Entwistle, John Myung, and Marta Altesa because she is sexy and see makes me smile.
    Hobbies and Interests:
