I know a rig is a sizable bass amp. Is a rig considered any head and amp that's not in a combo?
A rig is what you plug into, combo or separates. Doesn't have to be big, just get the job done while playing with others.
Even a combo with an extension cab I think.
Or two combo's togheter.
A combo on its own... I don't think. We should put it up to the elders for a vote.
A rig is any amp that you play through - it's just slang like calling your car your "ride"
All the equipment that is interconnected in between your bass and the wall outlet.
When your rig is a weenie practice amp you suffer rig envy. Almost immediately the first real rig you buy is seen as inadequate, even though it isn't, congratulations you just caught the GAS.
Amps, heads, cabs, combo amps - they're all tools to play music through. A rig is a fricken' Kenworth. I hate the term, but that's just me.
SWR Super Redhead Thats my rig! haha even on its own!!
A rig can include your bass, depending on who you ask. Some say it includes the bottle stashed in your bag. But there is much doubt.
And when your rig becomes totally inadequate or fails you on a gig it is known as "rigger mortis".
It's just a slang term meaning your bass amp, and can include pedals, bass, whatever. There is no "official" meaning.
A rig has eighteen wheels. What going on here?
Your rig . . .
What you slip into, what you put on, what you whip out . . .
Man, it's what you use to channel "you" . . .
Your rig, man . . .
Rigoletto, but that's Italian.
I consider my 810 a rig, but i call my 212 combo an "I don't feel like moving a refrigerator so get off my back.", or "combo" for short.
Bass player's rig
Guitar player's rig
Everybody's got a rig.
Somehow I'm glad my doctor doesn't call his practice a rig, though. But, then why not, I mean, if he's just practicing, ya know.
well no, but i imagine he might have some piece of equipment or system that gets the term; like one of those heart monitor EKG things, complete with display screen, cables, and the bits that attach to your body, might collectively be referred to by the nurses as "the EKG rig".
