Well, having just got rid of my Ampeg SVT3 pro (too quiet), my Sansamp RBI (nice but not the features I need), my Trace Elliot GP12SMX preamp (loadsa features but not the sound I want) and my 2 Ampeg speakers (2x10 and 1x15, not enough power handling), I've finally expelled some GAS and bought a Glockenklang Bass Art classic preamp and Schroeder 1212. They are both being shipped at the moment and I hope to play through my finished rig in about 2 weeks. Here is the final rig: Fender Jazz Marcus Miller sig edition (with hipshot detuner, Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups and John East preamp) Musicman Stingray 5 10u rack Power distributer (yet to be decided) Korg rackmount tuner Glockenklang Bassart classic preamp DBX 266XL compressor QSC RMX1450 power amp Schroeder 1212 flight ready cab The QSC will be bridged into the 1212. Hopefully this will settle me down for a while. I'm sick of having mismatches of power handling and output and always just not enough output. Does anyone out there have a similar rig? What do you think of it? Do you think I may need more power handling than the 1212 for fairly large outdoor gigs with PA support (cruise ship deck parties)? My Ampeg rig was running maximum of 450 watts (even with the QSC which I ran in stereo). It's always been just a little too quiet and I wish I had extra headroom and bottom end. Generally turned the bass down and increased the low mids in a bid to cut through without clipping (which always happened with the bass just at 12 o clock on the Sansamp). What are your thoughts? I'll post a pic when it is all ready. Mark I'm yet to play through a schroeder cab. I hope I don't wish I'd bought the 410.
