    ...because they're in transit.

    Demeter 201s --> Stewart poweramp --> two UL112s (each cab will get 600 watts)

    What can I expect? :hyper:

    that sounds like a really sweet rig.

    BUT...

    Have you tried an older hartke 15 and a nice trim little eden WT300?

    if not, lETS TRADE!!!!!!!!!!!

    (worth a try!)
     
  7. Nice rig. I remember getting my first UL (a 210) and literally laughing when I picked it up the first time. Enjoy!

    I used to own a Demeter 201s, and I have an Epi cab now. I think it'll be a great match for you! The Demeter is both warm and clear (a rare combination) and Epifani cabs are punchy and clear, with a very open, airy vibe. Both sound VERY smooth and very natural. Both will let you hear the tone of your bass, but not in a cold, sterile way at all.

    They should sound great together!

    Nevermind this guy, the 112UL is my favorite electric bass cab ever...and it is easy as pie to huck around. It is sure to satisfy!

    I have an UL112 and love it.
    I also have a UL210 and love it.
    For my next step, I'm debating between selling the UL210 and getting a UL310 or just getting another UL112 ...
     
  14. That tends to happen :D I replaced a 210 with a 310, and then moved all the way up to the 410UL. I've heard from a number of people that the 112UL/110UL combination and the 12/12UL combination sounds amazing. They all sound really good, as you know!

    The 210 to 310UL trade-up is a good one... the 310UL is not that much larger or heavier, and puts out more wump. However.... I feel the same way about the 310 to 410UL 'upgrade'! Thank goodness the 410UL is loud enough for anything I'd ever need to do... since they do make a 610UL :ninja:

    yeah, I think I'll end up doing the 210->310 upgrade. It would then maybe make more sense and versatility to get a 1-10 rather than another 1-12.

    DLM, sorry for the semi-hijack! I'm sure you're going to love your Epi cabs.
     
  16. The other nice thing about the 310 vs. the 210 is that it is tall enough to comfortably push around with the optional castors... i.e., it sits high enough that it's easy to roll, and stable enough to put your head on top while rolling. Also, taking the back wheels off angles the cab perfectly if you are stuck standing very close to it while still allowing an amount of 'floor coupling' to help with the low end if needed. Very nice.

    Congrats on joining the Epi Club. I've just completed my rigs by scoring a 502 on eBay. Complete line-up is now 502/UL310 or 502/110UL/112NYC. Both rigs sound truly amazing and so good for my ageing back They should keep me going for years.

    I have the 110UL, 112UL, 210UL, and 310UL, (berg 112ht).
    Talk about option anxiety! These boxes sound great alone
    and in different combinations. The 210UL, is sort of my "go
    to" box. Not too big or small. Gets loud but still "speaks" at
    a lower volume. Tough choice, but they all sound good.

    I love just taking off the back castors for the tilt back vibe...the 310UL is just the perfect size for that, giving you plenty of projection and floor coupling for your lows while being able to hear it clearly standing right in front...
