    One of the types of threads I really enjoy here on TalkBass is, when someone ask for advice on any subject. (with an obvious answer most times) Then when they get said advice, they argue and shoot down everything that is suggested. Which usually ends with the OP disappearing after the truth and reality is thrown at them and they don't hear what they wanna hear.
    So help a brother out with some advice, and I'll do my best not to listen or take your advice.

    You won't get significantly louder when you add that cheap 115 cab you found on a yardsale to your 810 setup.

    My friend uses 15" car sub woofers all the time with his Behringer 810, and he's the loudest I've ever heard.

    Or the people who show up to the thread about any particular bass guitar just to say they don't that like a brand.. over and over again. "I know you are just telling everybody that you enjoyed a particular gig, but since you mentioned the instrument you play i thought everyone should know that I would never own the bass or amplifier system that you have because they suck. "

    I'd go with the TI flats if I were you.

    I used to be an official “exert” on a message board, answering questions and giving advice, and what i learned was most folks were seeking validation not advice.

    I buy factory 2nds in bulk off EBay, and they sound and play better than any "premium" strings available today. Quarter Rounds are way better than plain old flats.

    I've owned at least 20 of them and sold every single one. I plan to buy at least 5 more and then sell them again. Because they suck.

    The best Pbass pickup for that vintage sound is a Geezer.

    No, I'm perfectly happy with my Chinese copy bass. It's just as good as the real one costing 15 times as much. I just wanna add new pickups and frets to make it even betterer.

    I get a way more "vintage" sound from my hand wound pickups I'm gonna make here real soon.

    I don't need your validation. I need advice on how to be able to use my 15 watt Kustom amp on a national tour I'm gonna be booking into 7500 seats or larger arenas. And be able to crush people's chest in with it's awesome bass tone.

  19. My main always on pedal is my personal MRI. It really gives my PU’s a cool driving sound.

    Go ahead, report me...
     
  20. Those amps have a DI... no problem. At least I heard that....

    Oh, and add an 810 cab.
