Hey everyone! So I'm trying to put together a drone/doom/stoner sort of rig. Here's my rig so far: Bass Tuner BBE Opto Stomp Way Huge Swollen Pickle MKII Tech 21 VT Bass Eden WTDI Acoustic b200 I have Devi Ever's Vintage Fuzz Master coming in the mail now, so I'm sure that will help my situation. Am I missing any effects anyone could mention for me? Does compression help or make drones harder? I know you don't get the dynamic range, but I've heard it helps with sustain? Thoughts? Anyway the main issue is I'm looking to get rid of my piece of crap Acoustic amp (sorry to hate if there are fans, but this thing is sub par at best). The two amps I'm seriously considering after months of research is the Peavey VB2 and the TC Electronic BH500. I'm thinking Peavey is the way to go here, I'm sure the tubes are ideal, but are they vital? Is it possible to pull off a drone/doom/stoner rig with solid state? Would the VT be able to compensate for my lack of tubes? I ask mainly because of price (I'm a poor college student). For amps I'm looking at something I could get used under 1k and preferably over 200w, 500w being ideal. Lastly I know speaker cabs are a big deal. I just have no clue what sort of cabs to get. I've heard a lot of people say get an 8x10 and I know there are some Kustom 8x10s selling super cheap. Is this a good deal? Others say to go with 15s or even 18s. What are your thoughts on cabs? Thanks a lot for your consideration! I can't wait to get feedback.
