    Ahhh, I finally ordered the bass rig of my dreams:

    SWR Bass 350
    Korg TU-2 rack mounted tuner
    Behringer AutoCom Pro compressor

    Two SWR Goliath Jr. III cabinets

    I'm using an Ibanez SR-480.

    I know this is a relatively small setup, but portability was
    a very big factor. I was going to go with the Triad, but it was too big for me to easily handle.

    Any comments (good or bad) about these items?


  2. Jeff, Welcome to the wonderful world of SWR pro gear.I play thru an SWR Sm400s and Goliath III. My head is rackmounted along with a korg DTR-2 tuner,Samson VHF wireless, With a Furman rackrider power conditioner mounted in the back of a SKB 4space(not rotorack) it looks awesome on top of the Goliath III with the chrome grill. Aside from its great looks its also IMHO the best sounding bass gear I've ever had the privalage to play thru.Your gonna love the new rig , I've had mine for a year and half and still feel inspired to play every time I see it. People are gonna know you mean business with a rig like that. Time to go practice as wayne and garth said (we're not worthy)

    No jwoertz, that ain't a small rig, at least soundwise. It's twice as good as most combo amps, I'd say it's medium sized physically with kick ass power.

    Too bad you used up all of your ohm loading. If you had gotten the Goliath III you could have added a nice 1 X 15" or 1 X 18" down the road. Not to worry, you can buy & sell if your needs change. That's the nice thing about top of the line equipment, it holds it's value.

    By the way, as set up, your rig is good for 450 watts, assuming you are using 2, eight ohm cabinets. If you got the 4 ohm cabinets, you are already over driving the amp so I know you got the 8 ohm model.

    I've got the same rig except with the Golieth III 4 X 10.

    If you plan on adding a 15 or 18 cab you can always wire the 2 2x10 cabs in series, in effect making them into the equivalent of one 4x10 at 8 ohms.
