    All out amps and cabs, this isn't supposed to be easy and I'm just about done with what I can do. I just want to see what ind of ineteresting things people can pull together for under $1000. I know they aren't going to be dream rigs, but it should be interesting and probably entertaining to see what some people throught together.

    Easy. Cab* for $500> a poweramp for Under 400 (almost and Carvin or QSC) and a Yamaha PB-1 preamp for ~$100 or depending on the cab and poweramp, a Peavey Max (about $200-250) preamp. Maybe you you scrimped on a cab and the poweramp, a SWR IOD

    *Whatever floats your boat. Used Eden Ampeg, or SWR 410 or 210 or an Aggie 1x12 , whatever you feel like. $500 can get you a lot of used cab. Or, a new Peavey cab, which are no slouches.

    Under $1000, pie.

    hmmm....Used SM-400s $500

    Used Eden 410T (or XLT if available) $500

    Not tons of power, but tons of tone which is more important to me. I'd rather have good sound than be loud with bad sound.

    That's all for under $1000????
    Where can you get 2 Aggie's for under that much less the entire rig???
     
  14. I am 17 and i wish i had some Edens. Damn, would you guys like to donate a cab or 2?;)
     
  15. G-K 800RB (used; sold on eBay 3 days ago by Jen!) = $300
    plus
    Avatar B410 (new) = $291, shipped
    plus
    Avatar B115 (new) = $241, shipped
    plus
    2 pcs. Rapco 12 gauge 6 ft. speaker cables (new at Mars, 24.99 each plus 6% sales tax) = $52.98
    TOTAL for all the above = $884.98

    Tough to beat, I'd say. Unless you really hate G-K tone.

    I'll be selling my GK800rb for $300+shipping as soon as my Sansamp RBI gets in if anyones interested. It's an older model which is generally regarded as more reliable and louder than the new ones. Apparently there's only 9 Sansamp RBI's in the whole GC chain and they're all in California. They won't let go of them because they say they are on hold for the "big time" players. :confused:

    Sorry, should have omitted the Sabine, it puts me over $150, here's how the cost broke down:

    Trace (ebay used, $300)
    Aguilar cabs (trade deal, net $300 each)
    Effects, used, $100 for both

  20. I'd provide a second vote for this rig. However, since I don't drink beer (or any other alcoholic beverage), I guess that means I can get better cables. :p
