First time poster, long time lurker here. Anyway I have a bit of a conundrum, I play in a pretty loud metal-ish band with a guitarist who uses a lot of gear. I have an SVT Vr, a P bass, and an 810 and I'm still competing. I find that I have to run my eq below 5 on all fields in order to not sound too woofy while competing with the guitarist. So I have this inefficient bassman 2x15 laying around and a peavey cs400 power amp. I need speakers for 2x15 and I'm planning on running my preamp from the SVT into the power amp. I do have all this stuff just collecting dust, however I don't want to buy the speakers if the cab isn't worth it. And I'm really just looking to be a little grindier and more prominent in the mix with a lot of punch and if this is a fools errand to put this budget second rig together I'd like to know. Im currently looking at eminence betas, or I have a line on some cheap peavey scorpions. Any advice would be awesome, other than tell the guitarist to turn down Also I have the boss ole dirty bastard for grind, any suggestions on similar pedals that aren't overkill on the fuzz or kill my lows would be awesome! Thanks and Hello all.
