    Veritable plethora of amazing bass goodness at the SF GTG today. Posting here because of the very cool assortment of unusual cabs and amps. I can’t call it a shootout because there would be no survivors- all different flavors of great.

    Sonic Farms 2di4 with RAD ICE 1000 amp on a MAS FlexTop
    2 AudioKinesis TC12's with Monique (Bamboo) and Jules M2500 poweramp
    Sonic Farms Tantra and Felix by Grace Designs Dual Pre-Amp on a MAS Bodai 12
    MAS Boday 28
    SWR (SM-900?) on AccuGroove Tri-L 10

    I am terrible at making comparisons between this many flavors of bass goodness. Man oh man - it's a great time to be a bassplayer.

    Hopefully others will chime in with better descriptions and more pics!
    @coyoteboy @wrp @wilco68 @zorf and whomever's user ID I missed, chime in!

    I've been playing through the MAS (Big E) cabs for a while so I knew that the ones I hadn't heard would sound great.
    I was also really, really impressed by @DukeLeJeune 's ThunderChild cabs - wow. Great tone, lots of booty. If I couldn't play Mike's cabs I'd get Duke's in a heartbeat.
    Another surprise for me was the Warwick LMA-1000 - a little class D hybrid that really seems to have flown under the radar. Great sounding amp!

    Yep. Some great players and great playing as well as great gear. And some beautiful basses. Mike's fretless F-bass is a beautiful, sweet-sounding instrument. You can see the back of it behind the picture of wrp and his AJ. That Fodera AJ is HUGE. And has a beautiful, clear tone.

    Cool! Looks like a good time (and lots of neat stuff to hear). Color me just a bit jealous.

    EDIT: @coyoteboy wins the Most Svelte Rig I've Ever Seen award.
