JimmyM, your Flip-top stack really is the shiz!!!!
Thanks. And thanks 4-string and Scotch.
Bought the Upton solely on word of mouth. I've got to play a lot of uprights in the Upton's price range since I got it, and it's a little bigger than most, but I've yet to play an upright in its price range that sounds as good. Nice guys, great work.
This pic is from a few years ago, I actually got to use the whole setup twice
I just don't get the chance to play on big enough stages where it would actually fit
It was a ton of fun when I got to use it
Love the rig jimmy although the flag on the bridge of the DB is pretty tacky.
Break me off a little some somethin.... Maybe not the prettiest - but I get some sweet Thump'n from this rig. Have the Line 6 wireless and the VT Bass Pedal - but they are not in the Photo.
The P-Bass is my latest GAS Attack Wins purchase, She is known as the Chalupa Bass : ) The B-DEC is for Practice and late night headphone Jams.
It helps hold the wireless tight. Plus I play for a lot of old people and they love that patriotic stuff.
And if it helps hold things in play, keep on flaggin.
omg, Jimmy if you want to adopt a wonderful 21 year old son who plays bass and salivates over your ampeg rig, just PM me
Do you do yardwork? Can you fix cars? Will you bring young girls to my gigs?
You know, B-15's aren't prohibitively expensive. The nice ones go for a bit of money, but you can get really good deals on beaters and orphaned heads and cabs if you keep your eyes open. Paid $150 for mine and it looked like hell but it worked perfectly for 7 years.
You have given me an idea. Of course, I can't give it up until it actually happens.
Just curious - i see that you use a foam block under your WT-400. Is this to prevent any sort of rattle in the amp? I ask because my WT-550 has this problem - and I've been looking for a way to cure it.
Whoever has some Emperor cabs with a decent looking amp is going to "win" this thread. I do like the look of that cab blowinblue.
This is definitely my new favorite thread. Big thanks to Jimmy for starting it.
Keep the good stuff coming everyone!
I'm having low freq. hearing loss just looking at some of these rigs.
You're the first person to ask about those. They are the Auralex Monitor Isolation Pads. They actually split into four sections. I normally use the smaller two. As for isolating a head/amp from cab vibrations, they are pretty much useless. I use them to prevent indentations from forming in my rat fur or tolex. Not a worry on gigs, but at home it can be a problem if the amp sits on top of a cab for a week or longer. Sorry for my tweakiness. I had a vibration in my WT-400 when I first got it. Turns out one of the fan housing screws was stripped out by the factory. It was the fan housing that was vibrating. I replaced the screws with machine bolts and nuts. Problem solved.
+1 to an Emperor cab winning. Thanks for the high five on my EarCandy. She is a looker.
Yeah, so far out of a lot of gorgeous rigs, that cab stands out. It's the grillcloth. That's like really early grillcloth from the 30's. Class.
Thanks for the reply blowinblue.
I've had a problem with a vibration in my WT-550 since I bought it, and have been desperately trying to find a solution. I even paid to send it in to Eden, only to receive it back in the exact condition I sent it in.
Sorry to hijack the thread
I don't do yardwork, but I have an A+ Certification (computer maintenance in case you didnt know) so i'll keep your computer outta the shop and yes...that I can do
I'd die if I could get the head and cab separate like you have, does yours still light up and everything? I saw Chris Joannou with three of them at the Silverchair concert in Houston and it sounded soooooo good (I was like 20 feet from the stage) in addition to looking awesome as well. But I might have to hold off for a while, seeing as how I am in college again and jobless lol.
Thanks for the advice though, as always you're the man to answer my tube amp questions and more
WOW. That must have sounded amazing when you did use it. What two shows gave you that opportunity?
