    After drooling over your Walkabout pics, and reading all the reviews. I went back to play the Walkabout. The first time I took my pbass and it sounded good, this time I took my main bass (Spector 5) and this thing sounded AWESOME!...so I bought it. Anyway this thing sounds great has a great sound and an awesome amount of thump from such a small package. Like Hank said "I was born to Boogie"

    I refuse to believe it until I see pics. :smug: Glad to hear it was my fault; I could use more blame in my life.

    It's Benjamin Strange, by the way. BassTriaxis got hit by a car.

    i'll post some pics when I get home tonight, though it is just the standard Scout. I didn't have the patience to wait for the custom version :) I started to post to Benjamin, but I saw someone else had called you Triaxis, so my goof.

    I need to go try one of these out. I have been mostly impressed with Mesa guitar stuff, but I really would love to hear what it would do to my jazz bass.

    BTW, why'd you change the name, Ben? I mean, Bass Tricycle, er, um, hmm, Bass Triaxis was good.

    Basstriaxis didn't get hit by a car, he got hit by another Boogie :). Can't have a triaxis when you have 4 amps :)

    I do have 4 amps. Actually, I have 6. :smug: See?

    I changed it because it seemed a little redundant to have a username with "bass" in it on a bass forum. Makes me a little easier to remeber now, no?

    That's the M2000. 600 watts, tube and fet preamps, overdrive, 2 compressors, and more knobs than you can shake a stick at!

    I count 5 amps...
    Buster (??) head
    M-2000
    Strategy 400
    Collesium 300
    Walkabout Scout

    Shouldn't there be a 400/+ / D180 in there somewhere?

    Oh, and you better not be counting the Strategy 400 as 2 amps...

    You are aren't you.

    You're missing the Bass Triaxis (of all things!). It's the 1RU thingy with the red LED digits on it.

    I'm still waiting to hear how these walkabout scouts compete with the rest of a band in a gigging situation. It's obviously not a big gig rig, but what about for bar band levels? Can it really keep up with two guitar players with distortion? I'm looking for a smaller end to my rig (which is an m-2000 plus PLX 3402 depending on gig size). The other thing I'm looking at is an Eden 210 combo.

    I have played it twice with a church praise orchestra and as usual got fussed at for being too loud :), and I subbed for a bass player with a Teen Christian rock band, (that was interesting as I am 40) but we played in a 200 seat church with two guitarists, drums, three singers and I was on about 3 or 4 for the entire gig. I was supposed to jam with my regular band tonight but it just got cancelled because the singer had to get a shot in his eye, and I don't mean whiskey either (Yikes) So far it has plenty of punch and volume. I plan on getting the 112 extension cab, but I also have a PR410 cab that I want to try it with as well. I am supposed to jam with some metal guys soon so that will give it a real test as one guitarist has a Marshall stack and the other guy has a Boogie stack. I'll probably get drowned out on that one :help: I'll give further reports as they happen.
