    I don't really mean for gig, and for practice. But for like differend tones I guess. Like having an SVT and a Orange. Bad example, I know, but you know. Like 2 way different amps or something.

    Anybody do this?

    Well i never sell gear so I have kept my old Mesa Boogie D-180 and my old cabs too. Quite different to the Glockenklang Soul and Bergantino NV 412 I recently picked up. Lots of fun mixing and matching up cabs and heads. :hyper:

  3. Yeah, I have a BBE BMax/QSC 850>Warwick 411PRO & a Traynor YBA200>Ampeg 810E... sometimes I like to swap heads/cabs though depending on where/when I'm playing, load in/out, etc.

    edit: I just remembered I also have a third rig for playing at honme which is an old Fender M80 guitar combo...I live in an apartment and it can't get very loud without sounding like poop so it keeps my volume in check.

    I have 2 full sized rigs at home. Only 1 goes out.
  5. At all or at a time?

    Right, no, only one particular amp travels out the door. The other is big, heavy, and stays put.

    Here's a few of mine. My AG500, WTX-500, WM-12 and a few Eden cabs aren't shown. I rotate them, depending somewhat on the type of gig and the room in my car.

  8. I enjoy the different tones I can get out of the various rigs I own, but my Boogie D180 with the two 18in cabs doesn't leave my prctice room anymore. I do carry a PJB rig and an Orange Tiny Terror rig to every gig though. Both are easy to transport and give me lots of different tones to play with.

    I have 2.

    The one I gig with is a SWR Head & a Ampeg SVT410HLF cab (Heavy but worth every pound). :D

    Then I've got my Home/Practice rig, it's an Old Peavey Head and a really old Traynor cab. (Nasty looking set-up, but it actually sounds pretty darn good). :ninja:

    I suppose if I pile all my other crap together I could do one more rig if needed....

    I guess Munji likes 410s and big racks :p

    I have my dragon setup (M9 & LDS nEarful 15/6) that's clean and loud enough to hurt, and a Walkabout with 2 Scout 12s for modularity, tonal variety and whatever other pathetic rationalization I can concoct in order to justify having way more gear than I need:bag:.

  12. I think my pants just got smaller.

    These are my options...(although my son is now using the Hartke HyDrive 115c and I have my trusty Ampeg B-100R back:hyper:)

    It's all in the same tonal ballpark, but I can definitely mix and match some different flavors with my gear. Not pictured is my M9 Carbine.


    The cat is there for increased high-end response :)

    Rig 1 stays put, but sounds sublime, and rig 2 is my go-to bass and synth rig. loves pics.

    I'm almost there - I always use my Accugroove Tri-115 but I have two different bass heads. Only one goes out because I like a 4 lb Shuttle 6.0 vs. a 50 lb rack with a Glock HeartCore. And the Shuttle sounds great.

    Sure - that's why I kept one of my 700rb-IIs when I got my Big Block 750 - I wanted to have some variety at my disposal... Also, the G-K had already proven itself reliable after doing around 200 gigs with it - and sounds great in it's own right... For cabs, I usually keep atleast an 810 or 610 around forhard rock, modern rock and metal, and a 215 for classic rock, blues, and country - and will also typically keep around a 410 and a 115(always used separately, though) for smaller volume needs than my typical gigging situation...

    Besides, if one can afford the luxury, it's not bad to be able to leave one rig at a rehearsal space, and have another ready for gigging...

    I get total different sounds from my two. The VB-2 & 2-212's and the SWR 350X & Goliath SR 610. If I use the Ric-O-Sound on my 4003 and run the bridge pup through the SWR rig and the neck pup through the VB-2 412 rig it's like playing two basses at ones.
