finally got my new rig together (and thanks)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by wotnwhy, Nov 14, 2003.


  1. ok, it's been about 8/9 months in the making, but i finally got together my dream rig, i've had the pre and power amp for several months now, but my cab FINALLY arrived today! it's a Glockenklang Double 2x12 cab, the reason i had to wait so long is i had to get some of the money together first, and then wait for it to be built which took a few weeks.

    but OH MY GOODNESS the wait was worth it. just playing the new rig in my room made a dramatic difference in sound, it's all just so much clearer and more defined, i couldn't stop playing for hours just because i enjoyed listening so much, deffinetly a first. and it's suprisingly light and easy to carry. anyway, without further ado, specs and pics:

    Tech 21 Sansamp RBI pre-amp
    Gemini 1600 power amp (500w a side at 4 ohm, i'm only using 1 side)
    Glockenklang Double 2x12" cab (500w @ 4ohm)

    i also mentioned in the thread title about thank you's. anyone who visits the amps forum a lot may have noticed several threads started by me on preamps, cabs, and just amps in generall. and i'd just like to say a bit THANK YOU to all those people who helped me out in those threads, in particular Petebass who was VERY helpfull in a couple of the threads i started.

    ok, thats all folks, whaddaya think? :D

    Very handsome indeed!!!

    Personally, I'd rotate the Glock 180° so that the port was near the floor and the tweeter was closer to ear level.

    I agree! Also put a Gramma Pad under it to really hear the best from your rig.:bassist:
     
  7. BillyB, i'll do that.

    NeedMoreBass, i've never heard of a grammer pad, but would i be right in guessing thats it's a box to put the cab on to get it closer to your ear?

    From what I've heard about Glocks, I'd imagine that sounds nothing short of KILLER!

    Enjoy that rig, I'd love to have a 212 cab in my rig too...someday!:D
     
  10. i had my first jam with the rig this sunday, and if possible, i think i love it even more now.

    this this just kicks it's way to the front of the mix, the EQ on my bass and amp were wonderfully flat, and the volume was amazingly low, and still it was absolutely no effort being heard in the mix and it was an unbelievably punchy crystal clear sound.

    absolutely worth every one of the many pennies i paid for it, can't wait for a gig to really put it through it's paces!

    and, the best thing about it (apart from the sound, obviously) is, i can carry the whole rig at once. and it's the rack case thats the heavier of the 2, this things lighter than a feather. and it's not even the light version :eek:

    I love my Double! For fretless it's hard to beat. Heck, it's just plain hard to beat.

    I can't find the email at the moment but IIRC it was about £100 = $170 at current rates. Too much for 3 pieces of acoustic foam glued onto some carpeted plywood IMO (especially as it's exactly the wrong shape for my vertically stacked Acme rig).
