    This thing sounded great. Competing with a 100watt Marshall and a loud drummer, the master never got past 8:30ish. I will post some more detailed explanations in some other Shuttle 6.0 reviews and threads, but I thought you guys might get a laugh out of this. With this amp and cab combo, there is headroom for days. It's unfortunate that this setup is so impractical and antithetical.
    FWIW, it sounded great!! Thick and clear.

    Very nice!

    And here I thought that one of my choices was going to be Ken Jung playing a full SVT rig! :p

    My favorite is Rob's Peavey 400 (that HUGE tube head) with his little Berg HT112 sitting on TOP of the head. The cab is probably less than 50% as big as the head!!!!!
     

  4. My primary gigging rig is an Epi410UL(II) and an F1. That's kind of the 'funk/pop' equivalent to the rig you posted above. I actually think it looks pretty cool, and it just slams, slams, slams... I mean it SLAMS:bassist:

    Not so much an amplifier as it is a hood ornament!

    Do you need to super glue the head to the cab to keep it from vibrating off or being yanked by your cord?

    My Walkabout looks like a toy on top of two Powerhouse cabs, but like yours, it sounds immense.

    LOL - - That was going to be my question...

    My head weighs 40+ pounds and I worry about yanking on the cord :eek:

    Not quite as extreme as *that* one, but I was trying to find a picture of fretlessboy's GBE1200 on top of his Neox112t cab, but can't find it. 44 pound head, 33 pound cab ... ;)

    Cheers
     
  11. haha, very funny looking rig. Im sure it sounds the money though!

    Great thread! I was thinking about that same "picture" just yesterday because I've been contemplating the new Genz Benz 600!

    I, too, worry about a cord pulling the amp off the bin. Has anyone dealt with that issue? Maybe duct tape.

    Unfortunately, my amp is a Trace V-6, so it looks "normal". I'd like to see more of these!

    A friend of mine gigged recently with his Markbass F1 on top of his NV610. It must have looked pretty tiny on top of that huge cab. :p

    Ken Jung with t bird playing through a SVT classic and an 8x10 gets my vote!
     
  18. the other day I was in a pretty loud jam session, the striking of certain notes would cause my NeoPak to vibrate across the top of my B212 towards me... What would be a good remedy for this, besides not playing those particular notes?
