    hahaha. thats good.

    um that peavey setup looks pretty good, how much did that run you?

    as far as my sound im looking for somethign wiht emaculate cleans, but when i throw i my distortion you know its there. and when i tap i could do it without (or with minimal use) of the boss lm-2b that i have. the cabinets are both 8 ohm. and enough to power for both....
     
  6. I got my DPC used for $895. You can get them retail from any Peavey dealer for $1150 new. I bought my Max Bass Pre-Amp new (w/out foot switch) for $325. Figure in a 2 space SKB rack (you'll need a DEEP one as the DPC is 16'' deep) and patch chords you're looking around $1600. For an entire set-up that should weigh less then 25lbs (with rack) and dump out 1400 watts that's a pretty decent deal.
