    Alright this may be a lot but I would like some opinions of these even thought I may not heed them I would like to hear what you think.
    OK this summer I am planning on buying a complete setup! i.e. new bass, cabinet, head, rack and have some ideas for what to get and want some feedback on what you guys think. I'll list each thing in sections to make it easier to understand.

    bass: Schecter Stiletto Elite 5, and a fretless Squier or Rogue(just for laughs), and to upgrade the pickups on my Epiphone(no one has responded to that post in pickups by the way!)

    cabinets: Peavey 410TVX and maybe later an Ampeg BSE115

    rack equipment: SWR350 head, Korg rack tuner, and a Furman power conditioner, and a wireless

    effects: a Boss bass overdrive, Bassballs, and a Boss bass chorus or Synth (I already have an Ibanez DS7 distortion pedal and a Jim Dunlop 105Q)

    I would appreciate your opinion on this equipment yet also I would like to know if the impendances would work out and if it would be underpowered. Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Any pricing info on Peavey cabinets would be greatly appreciated!
     
  3. i do not recommend you get the ODB-3...it's not very versatile...i would check out the fulltone bassdrive, Pro-Co Rat or the Big Muff Pi.

    What do you think about the Ibanez Phat-Hed is that versatile?!

    sounds pretty nice to me but i think your priorities are kinda out a wack. I mean your getting a real real nice amp head just pretty good bass. If i were you i'd get a little cheaper head and a nicer bass. Not that the schecter isn't nice, it is, but not comparable to that swr350. Everything looks totally cool otherwise. I'm real against pedals so i can't really comment on that but i do like your rack setup alot. Well good luck gettin all that money.

    What about if I replace the stock pickups? and it would be pointless to sacrifice head sound and power to get a better bass and play it through a crappy head. I'd rather have a great head and a decent bass
     
  7. I think i shall move this to Misc. Its not really about the setting up of your bass. more or less your entire rig.

    :D:D

    And there is a man who does have his priorities in order. The Schecter is a decent enough bass. Most people spend so much on their bass that they have to skimp on the amp and wind up settling for something that is less powerful than they need.

    Thanks a lot, Merlin!:rolleyes: :D

    This is actually kind of 3 or 4 threads in one.

    EEbass, you might be better served by opening a thread on the amp, and after you get that settled, open one on the bass, and then the effects, each in their appropriate Forums, of course.;) Just an [​IMG]idea[​IMG].

    Yea ur right sorry about posting in the wrong forum:rolleyes: but anyway yea ur right it be like buying an Alembic with a Rogue amp it just doesn't make sense so I kind of compromised the 2 but a little less on the amp. I think the mods should start a completly new forum called "Rigs" so we wouldn't have the confusion. Anyway while I have your attention do you think you could describe to me what an envelope filter does? and go on about the rig more I like the feedback!

    Oh I noticed something the other day, and thought that maybe I should look into them. I had always thought they were out of my price range until I got the pricing info on them. Now I would like one but realized I would have to get a power amp w/out eq and leave it at that for a while. The cabinet I am looking at are the Acme Low 4x10 and the Low 4x10W. I was just wondering what your opinions were on these cabinets.

    Yet another enlightenment has come to me and its another big one! Drop the SWR350 wayyy underpowered for the Acme. How about the new Carvin 1000watt Power amp!(look at the attachment) Now the issue is wether(sp?) to buy an EQ or a 31 band equalizer. Me and bassman were arguing about this and I don't know which way to go. Some advice would be appreciated.
     
  13. I wonder what he needs the powerconditioner for.. is the mains in .USA really that bad ?

    Wow stupid question in my opinion. Notice all those pedals up there. Do you think I am going to put batteries in all of those. If so, I laugh in your face many times. The power condition allows me to plug like 8 things into it. I.E. power strip, wireless, tuner, power amp, pre-amp or eq. Allowing me to only take up one space of a normal socket. Saving lots of space and giving me those cool little lites to shine on my power amp and tuner and junk. Even though the tuner already lights up. Look at the attachment. Obviously this means that I have to get a larger rack case though seeing as how th pedals powering adaptors are large, but most of those will be plugged into a power strip:D

    Sorry about being so rude. Male PMS. Drives me nuts! lol
     
  16. So do you want that Mesa Boogie setup in your sig or what? Oh yea, you shouldn't post when you're PMS'ing, because that post to Allodo was pretty rude. Anyways, I wanna know what you do for a living because you must be <b>rich</b> getting all that stuff!
     
  17. You call that rude ? weheheh :D

    you obviously haven't met me outside this forum :D
    i'm Mr. Bad language & sharp opinion himself :D
     
  18. Anyway.. personally i think one of those powerconditioner thingies only has use if you have a big rack full of really expensive units..

    for pedals etc i use a standard extension block :)

    No, see if I was rich the Mesa gear would be the gear I would buy. But since I'm not rich I'll try to get buy. Heres some price listings I found!

    Acme B-4 cabinet ~$700

    Ibanez BTB(debatable pick)~$600

    Carvin 1000 watt power amp ~$370(talk about a steal)

    Furman Power Conditioner~$100

    Sansamp Bass Preamp ~$180

    Total= $1950 (not that bad I'd say)

    All the other stuff I would buy later.

    As you may noticed. The bass I want has changed 3 times in this thread from a Schecter, to a Spector, and now to an Ibanez. This is really a toughie. But these are the basses I have narrowed it down to and would like your opinion

    1. Schecter Stilleto Elite 5

    2. Spector NS2000 Q5 (bolt on)

    3. Ibanez BTB 405

    4. Jackson C5

    5. Cort C5

    6. Fender Standard Jazz V

    7. MTD Kingston 5

    thats what I have narrowed it down to.
