    Ok so we have seen basses and guitars so now its time to see your Bass Rig. Through my life it has always been a struggle to have the best sounding rig. Sometimes it is a combo but for me most times it has been an amp and a speaker cabinet. Here is a picture of my most current rig and I will post more of my other rigs when I get home. I am real curious to see what people are using.

    My go to rig these days. Genzler MG800 paired with my Fearless F112. This rig covers all of my needs even without FOH support. F112.

    For outdoor gigs/large venues, I use an Ampeg V4B w/8x10 "fridge"

    For indoor gigs, band rehearsal and general home practice, I use either a Mesa Subway D800 head w/6x10 PH cab (Also have a Carvin 1x15 cab if I don't want to lug the 6x10)...


    Fender Rumble v3 500 Combo w/2x10 extension cab for a 4x10 vertical stack (for smaller venues, I just use the combo by itself)

    How is that Quilter? have been seeing them a lot but never played through one. I was wondering how it would do with my Barefaced. I will be in the market for a new amp in the next few months so I will be checking into them.
  7. Depends on the occasion and how strong I'm feeling :) IMG-20170303-WA0001. 20170331_194610. 20161123_200954. cabs 003.JPG

    I like it a lot. Especially for the price. The depth and contour controls make it easy to dial in the tone you want and it's plenty loud. It also has a balanced input so you can use it as a power amp.

    Read more about them here:

    I'm really liking that Mesa rig.

  11. I used several types of amps over the years, and came back to a Markbass Mini CMD 121P / NY121. It has a great sound, and is very easy to move. Both size, and weight wise. I like the 12" speakers, and it's 500 watts is there.

    Most of the time, the Alembic/Crown/Avatar rig stays in my practice room, but it does get gigged out a couple times a year. Yes, it can get insanely loud, but I actually like playing through it for *quality* sound over quantity. It's unbelievably clean, with miles of headroom, and a nice simple Fender tone stack to work with. Running it in stereo and bi-amping is heavenly. ;)

    Honestly, 90% of the time, it's just my Mesa Walkabout/Scout 15. That's plenty, and it has a very nice DI out. :thumbsup:
