    Trip... Nice to see you will be playing
    at namm, other than in the GK booth.
    Its about time you got your ass where
    it should be. If the guys on this site
    knew what kind of a musician you are,
    it would scare them. Nice!

    This site is full of marvelous talented
    musicians. I think its safe to say that
    many (if not most) do not know each other.
    There is a good possibility that many
    of these same musicians only know Trip,
    as a GK advocate. Trip is a worldclass
    bassist and vocalist. He's is the last one
    to blow his own horn. On this occasion,
    I'm taking the pleasure of blowing his horn
    for the few of us who are not familliar
    with him.

    Sulphur La,
    My father is a trumpet player. He blows his own horn. Bad joke, I know. I learned to keep quiet from him. Thanks for the kind words of Brad Johnson and B-String. One thing I learned from my father: The world owes you nothing for being talented and groovy. That's something that only other folks can percieve. It's best to keep still. I do love to play though. Does the above comment have anything to do with amps? No. I DO however have a amp and gear thesis at www.tripwamsley.com/gear.htm.
    I just want to shout out to the above guys for their kind words!!:) :) :)

    No problem, Trip. You're not exactly anonymous, lots of folks here know you tear it up. Of course it couldn't hurt for more folks to know;)

    I love the story that someone posted on Trip's guestbook about how they were at a guitar show watching Trip play and someone next to them said "this guy's a badass." He looked over to see who said it and it was freakin' Chuck Rainey! :cool:

    Nuff said.

    I read your gear thesis Trip and totally agree with you.I think we(musicians) have all been guilty at some point of thinking about gear more than actually playing, praticing or spending time with the ones we love. I also agree that a great tone/good sounding amp can inspire some creative playing.However a great sounding amp that doesn't work when you need it to can be very uninspiring.That being said,I plan on getting VERY inspired at next weeks NAMM show............

    Will a 410 cab be significantly louder at 4 ohms than at 8 ohms?

    Sulphur La,
    About the 4 ohm vs. 8 ohm. One way of looking at it is: Most amps dump all their juice into 4. So as a general thing, I would say that a 4 ohm cab is louder. Then, if you were to get two 8-ohm cabs for a total of 4 ohms load you would move more air and that would really be louder. I go the route with two 8 ohmers so my rig gets as big or as small as I want it to.
    Jaquo, you know I hate music. I just like gear. ;)
    On the serious: Love to Jaquo and Lawson! And to all on this thread! See you at NAMM. I will be quite awful. Nothing to see. No. Nothing at all. :D
