    I'm curious what the G&L players here are running through. Given our phenominal taste in basses, I'm guessing we have some equally impressive rigs. I'll start. I'm gonna be in the market for a new head soon, and looking for ideas. I'm thinking an Eden or Aguilar. For now this suits me just fine though.

    You know, I don't have any pictures of my rig - how messed up is that? I've got pictures of most basses I've owned and lots of other stuff, but none of my rig. I'll fix that tonight when I go to rehearsal.

    One thing to remember - although G&Ls are tonal nirvana for many, they are also incredible bang-for-the-buck. So you may find some rigs that are in the "high value" category rather than the "boutique" category. At least that's how mine fits:

    BBE Bmax SS -> Carvin DCM-1000 -> 1-2 Avatar B112s & 1 Avatar SB-112

    And I've got a Yamaha BBT-500H coming in to check out. I love the BBE/power amp setup but am getting tired of lugging a 40-50lb rack around. The TFB-420 I just passed on would have been perfect but I traded it for another G&L . . .

    I play an Ampeg SVT3Pro through a BLB 4x10 cabinet. It's been the same rig since 1995. I am currently considering an Eden WT550 and maybe two D112XLT cabinets but I haven't made up my mind yet.

    Here's my 'big rig'. I think we share similar tastes..(Excuse the pictures. We are having some construction done at home and everything is coated with dust).


    Practice rig. I like to mix and match the S12 with the S15s

    Not a big rig, but nice sound!

    I'd have more configurations pictured but not all the pictures came out clear (dang failing evening light). It'll get more complex if I like the BBT-500H and start using it (lots more ways to put things together).

    The 3-12s with both racks on top was about 6' tall

    this is a rather old one


    My G&L is one of the first run L2500's that came out. Bought it in '96 or '97
    The Singray I bought in about '95 (?)
    The WorkingMan's 12 has since died. I'm using a borrowed SVT 200T with the same 1x15
    I'm looking for a new head to call myown, will probably get an SVT 4 Pro...

    As of Wednesday night, my rig is now officially an Eden WT550 and a BLB 4x10 cab. As much as I loved my SVT 3 Pro, the Eden is bigger sounding and I think it's louder.

    I feel right at home. '82 L-1000 through a GK800RB into a pair of Bag End 15 (non-coax) cabs.
    Occasionally use a Voodoo Labs Tremolo pedal and BOSS tuner pedal and maybe a BOSS DD-6 delay.

    My second rig is an Acoustic Image Contra into a Bag End coax 15. The acoustic Image cab doesn't get along so well with the G&L at volume, so it gets practice duty and upright work. I have an L-2000 fretless coming that should be heavenly through this. No pics of that setup yet.
