  1. (Bad Staind reference in that title)

    What's your dream bass rig?! Ha it was predictable the 'GAS' pressure on the boards has been rissing and everyone needs to vent. OR atleast I do.

    After thinking (or dreaming if you want to be a wise***) I've come up with this...

    Amp Setup:
    SWR IOD>
    SWR SM-900>
    SWR 2x10+2x12
    (which isn't all that far fetched.)

    Ibanez BTB1005.
    Custom 5-string piccolo (soundgear look alike).
    Ovation Celebrity Fivestring Acoustic (EADGC).
    Fender Jazz V.
    Music Man Stingray five string.
    Warwick Thumb through fivestring.
    Warwick Prestege V Hollowbody.
    NS upright five string.
    Ibanez BTB1005 fretless.
    Epiphone EB3 five string.
    Hofner Violin bass.
    (Lots more which is very unrealistic.)

    EH BassMicroSynth Clone (More control over the occilators, better filter section with controlable amp and multiple user presets.) Rack mount.
    MoogerFooger MF-102 Ring Modulator
    MoogerFooger CP-251 Control Processor
    Chunk 00Funk.
    Line6 DL4
    MoogerFooger MF-103 Phaser
    EH Polychorus
    Lovetone "???"
    Ibanez Synthesizer Bass
    Ibanez Phase Mod

    My situation is different:

    I own a setup I really like and I don't know what could be my dream setup, because I haven't seen (let alone played) all this famous equipment.

    So my dream is having shipped a different rig every week to our rehearsal to try out....

    Bass: Don't need anything but my Stingray5
    Effects: the complete EBS line
    Else: give the Bass POD a try for recording


    edit: ok, to be honest there's this little wish list:

    second Glockenklang 212 cab
    Gallien Krueger RBP 2001 preamp
    Crown Macrotech 1202 power amp
    Orange AD200B tube head
    and - of cause - a vintage SVT rig (roadie included)
    oh yeah, and a vintage Chevy van....

    I've got most of it.

    Great 4 string jazz = Fender Geddy Lee Jazz
    Great 5 string jazz = Pedulla Rapture J2
    Top of the line fretless 5 = Zon Sonus Custom w/ piezo
    Great 6 string = Peavey Cirrus Custom
    Great practice and quiet gig combo = Fender Bassman 25
    Great medium volume gig combo = SWR Basic Black
    Great loud volume gig combo = Eden Metro
    I do need a good extension cabinet for the Metro, maybe a D115XL?

    Of course, there are things that I don't need that I have GAS for.

    Either a Warmoth or a DP Custom P/MM 5. Haven't decided which route to go yet.

    A Peavey BAM combo. If I find one of these at the right price, I will sell the Metro.

    A Gibson RD Artist in butterscotch natural.

    Some kind of old Ampeg all tube head, maybe a V4B?

    And replacements for stuff that I used to own.

    A Westone Quantum Steinberger copy.
    An early 70's Memphis P bass, sunburst w/ ashtrays, back when they made good Fender copies(my first bass)
    A black Peavey T40 w/ rosewood board
    A pearl white Westone Pantera 5 string
    A silverface Fender Bassman 10 combo

    you'd think penis enlargements for all of you would be more convenient, perhaps even cheaper.
