    I think I've gone about as far as possible towards a good Rockabilly rig without dumping the amp and cabs for a bigger amp and a fearFull cab. It's sounding and playing great. The Hydrives are light, punchy, plenty of low end, great click. Plus they are switchable 4 or 8 ohms.

    Nice setup! How do you like those strings?

    I was wondering the same thing. Tension wise, how do they compare to gut?

    My rig will be the EA doubler and the new 1-12 cab they have. I'd like to keep the option of sometimes playing my electric open so I chose that. I've got the cab, just haven't ordered the head yet

    How does your setup handle feedback?

  5. The strings are not high tension at all say compared to a steel string. Never played gut that much so I can't really compare.
    I'd describe them as firm but soft on the fingers. Nice fundamental.
    I don't have a problem w feedback unless I stand the bass directly in front of the cabs. A bit to the side and I'm fine.

    Are the reds like the black rockabilly strings?

    Haven't heard much about the the Shadow p/u system.
    How are you liking it?

  8. Are you happy with the Carvin amp? Good acoustic tone?
  9. New setup: Gut-a-like 'Hebcat' strings, Channel Blaster pickup + pre amp, Glockenklang Passenger amp, Barefaced BigTwin2 cab.
    Yesterday was my first gig with this setup and it was killer.
    I especially like the Blast Cult pickup system, that you can dial in the pressure on the piezo with a screw; ingenious!
