Currently what I am looking to get is a starting rack set up and cab, My Budget is $1250 Amp/Pedal: Peavey Tour 700 Head $300 Tech 21 Sansamp RBI Bass Preamp $275 Mark Bass Compressore $115 I'm looking at cabs currently, Feel fairly confident with the amps I have looked at. I play Thrash and Punk Rock, usually playing small to medium size gigs in Pittsburgh a lot of studio stuff too as I like production and figured having the peavey and sansamp would be nice to direct in as a pair to capture my live and at home sound. I would prefer an 8ohm set up so I may get another 4x10 in the future, Also curious about 4x12 on bass, I like my bass tone a little more treble compared to most metal bass. For cabs I have looked at under $300: Ampeg SVT410HE 4x10 800W Peavey Headliner 4x10 Ampeg BSE410HLF Carvin Rl410t I'm at a loss for cabs, I wanted to originally get a custom Avatar but found that it wasn't in my budget atm, but I have gigs coming up and I've been enslaved by using a practice berhringer amp that is Eh... I use a franken bass a Jackson C20 with a ton of modifications, Passive EMG geezer butler signature pickups.
