Hi all, I need to ask a good question. I'm moving to London, very shortly and as we know with traffic I won't have a car and will rely on public transport. I will have my bass (1986 MIJ Fender P-Bass) and a couple of pedals (B:ASSMASTER and planet waves tuner). Now I may be involved with a few different bands over there (I've been in contact, everything from Metal to Folk) now because of this I need something versatile and light and would most likely prefer a modeling pedal to achieve many rigs but I'm as I know from being a live sound engineer that most small - medium venues don't really have great gear for monitoring especially, (I mix in Perth Australia, Big Day Out local stage, Southbound etc). I mean basically I need a good preamp, D.I. and compressor but would like a delay or two. I'd love an amp but I'm afraid most Markbass like amps are too expensive and still too difficult to transport on buses and trains, plus my P in it's case is 9.5 kgs. What do you think??? I looked at the Line 6 X3 live (luckily most problems are solved) The rocktron Utopia B100 (just can't find any info) Or i thought of an EBS Microbass II an MXR M-80 or a BBE BMax and then run my fuzz etc out front and the DI to th FOH and hear it all back in my monitor. But again no delays. It's a bastard as I love recording and pedal tweaking but need to spend as little as possible. My budget is at most $600.00 USD. This is bugging me, I've thought of many things but they all have downfalls. I think the most versatile in the X3 Live but reliability down the line bugs me. Matt, Sorry for the long post.
