    thought I'd put this up here.
    Berg "CN312" (CN112 + CN212) driven by a Walkabout/Subway D800+ mix with a bit of a twist.
    Running the Mesa Walkabout's "post everything" DI into the Mesa Subway D800+ FX return. pretty straight forward.
    But then, instead of having both cabs run by the D800+ output, I let the WA run the CN112 for a pure WA sound, and the D800+ with the WA DI input drives the CN212. This results in about the best higher powered (965w) Walkabout that I have heard so far. Had it on a gig last weekend and was very happy with the results. One more piece of gear to haul, but the D800+ is a minor addition to the rig.
    As a reference point, a few months ago I tried to run the CN312 with the WA alone running at 2ohms, and I ended up tripping the WA thermal protection. So, that experience sent me looking for other approaches, and this one works great!

    WA D800+ CN312 sm.

    How do you like the extra 12?
    I’ve pondered getting a second CN212 or maybe a CN112 like yours to add to my rig. I really don’t need the volume, but I thought maybe it might be nice just to move a little more air.

    generally I have been perfectly happy with the CN212 by itself. Recently I picked up a 60's/70's style power trio gig and decided I needed more volume. Adding the CN112 worked great for that and with the right amp set up, like the Walkabout/D800+ rig I described above, the 312's definitely move quite a bit more air than the CN212 by itself. I'm very happy to have grabbed the 12 cab to add to the 212.

    I just posted this pic in another thread and figured I hadn't shared this one in a while. Here is my IP153 with the EX115 extension cab. Come to think of it, I have not had this out on the gig for a while. I may have to make that happen again sometime soon...

    One of these would fit real nice up there as well:

    ARKHAM-THE ABYSS
    ...or a Zephyr...

    I was able to spend some quality time with the Arkham tube bass preamp prototype several years ago and provided some feedback. Nice gear, for sure!

    I know Jim was talking about making one or two more, but I'm not sure if he did. That rig is pretty much the pinnacle of my colleciton, to be honest. Though in all fairness, I have a parallel hierachy of top tier "tube rigs."

    Well, I finally got to try the HDN212 at practice (powered by a Darkglass MT900 with my Dingwall Dbird). Some of the things I wasn’t loving at home (a little harshness w the distortion running, etc) dissappeared in the band setting. Plenty of lows but cut right through. I had the amp very close to flat, so a huge difference from the GK cabs. I’ll try to remember a picture next week!!!

    Plus, I just picked up 3 upcoming country gigs. Thinking the Mesa Walkabout and HDN112 will be perfect for it.

    With a Kern pre, outside, no band shell, it made both of my guitarist’s eyebrows raise and the drummer just stare. The guitar amps were a cranked Fuchs and a Hayseed. I actually turned down. Imagine being louder than everyone else. :) It was crystal clear at huge volume.
    At a regular jam in a 200 yr old barn with 100 ft. ceilings I’ve placed the cabs side by side. Sometimes you have to work with the acoustics to find the best location and configuration.

    With a Monique it’s just stupid. :)

    I can imagine. I have new found respect for the power module in those IP's, and would think it drives the crap out of those boxes.

    "Imagine being louder than everyone else. :) It was crystal clear at huge volume." I had the same experience last night with the Arkham, 1000P amp and 2x CN210.

    I just love the Bergs more and more. And my CN112 just arrived :)
