Hey, so as the title suggests, I did a little cabinet shootout earlier today between my newly purchased Traynor TC-410, and a pair of Ampeg SVT210AV cabs. Both cabs were run through an Ampeg Micro-VR head. I had found that at big gigs, the pair of Ampeg cabs couldn't really handle the beefy low end I was looking for (I play mostly in a reggae band). Not sure if it was the head or the cabs which was the issue (if not both ), so I took the head and my bass to a music store and started trying it with cabs. Anyways, ended up with the Traynor, which at 800w can take anything the head can throw at it! Decided to do a little demo to try and capture the differences, which I found were surprisingly stark IMHO. Played 3 riffs through each cabinet set on my Rickenbacker 4003 all with some tonal and on-neck-location variations. All riffs are with both pickups on full. First riff is tone wide open, second riff is with tone rolled down 100%, third is with the tone knobs at about 30%. Mic'd both cabs up with a Shure sm57 and Blue Kickball. Not the greatest mics for the task, but all I had to try and capture the fullest range of tone. Amp settings were kept identical for both, nor did I adjust the input volumes on my mixing console or tweak anything once tracked in Garageband. Did my best to get mic placement as similar as possible, but I'm no pro... First three riffs are on the Traynor, second three on the Ampegs. Please forgive my questionable playing; I was more concerned with the tone of everything!
