    I know Demeter makes the or two and as I recall, the MarkBass F1 and F500 are 1U and rack mount. What else?

    Difficult format I guess... 1U equipment that chucks out serious amounts of heat must be moderately challenging to get right without impractically noisy fans - ever stood beside a rack of 1U servers? I doubt many bass rigs are going to be seriously hurting for space, and 2U must be so much easier to keep decent airflow through. Its not as if many folks have rigs with a dozen power amps... At an uninformed guess it would seem to me the only folks really wanting to save the extra Us would be people with two or three way setups where saving space on the mid and HF amps would be desirable.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured

    Aguilar DB659 Bass Preamp. Those were good ones but hard to find these days.

    As someone else said, the GK MB/MBF/500/800 can be fit with rack ears. I have my MB800 in a rack and it's one space.

    How about a 1RU power amp and whatever processor/preamp pedal you want on the floor?

    Another ticket for the Ampeg B-1.

    150 watt hybrid head that uses a two tube preamp system. Indeed it sounds more like 300 watts.

    I think the rock crusher would be damaged first.

  20. I would think the GB if you can even find a rackmount. I have a Shuttle 6.0, I would like to find a footswitch
