Well you might remember me posting about looking for cabinets (mentioned I was looking at Aguilar, Ashdown, etc) and a preamp (looking at SWR). Well I have now got me a rig that I'm very happy with and it's actually the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of the brands I mentioned. But anyways here's what it consists of: Sansamp RBI preamp Yamaha CP2000 poweramp Avatar 4x10 The sound from this rig is awesome...especially for the money. Which speaking of that, that's what changed my mind from my previous decisions. I eventually just came to the conclusion that I can't afford stuff like Aguilar, SWR, etc. ...so I think it's important that I look for something I can afford at this point then maybe in the future when I have some more money, I can go a little more hog wild in terms of gear But I will say that with the sound this thing gives I'm very impressed and will probably keep it for a while. Just thought I'd let you all know. Peace.
