    and I want an all tube head that pushes 2000 watts at 8ohms. I know it will be heavy, but it won't be an issue. It will be mounted in a flight case with wheels, and roadies will be moving it around (I'm rich remember.) Who could build this? What features would you put on it? Does it exist already?
     
  2. If you're that rich, you could have anyone build it for you.

    Ampeg, Mesa/Boogie, whom'ever.

    I suggest you actually try a SVT first and realize how loud 300 tube watts are. :D Other than that anybody will build it if you give them the dime.

    Naturally, you'll want a pair, right? Better bring an electrician to your gigs to wire a distro while you're at it.
     
  6. Whats a distro? (Probably a stupid question)

    No problems; since it's already 250 pounds, what's another 5 or 10? :ninja:

    Actually, if I invested that kind of coin in a bass rig, I'd want at least 3-4 completely different preamps to run into it. Better make that another 20 pounds...
     
  9. What kinda speaker cab would you pair to it??? an 8x18" or just like a single 30" :D*goes to buy earplugs*
     
  10. Normally when I'm not at practice on sunday;s or gigging at 10PM at night on a wednesday and get 3 hours sleep before work the next day........... I pretend "I'M A COWBOY!!!!
