    Sweet set up. Although I would add a cab to it for my taste buds. a 4-10 or at least a 2-10 both w/t a nice tweeter. You have all the power you will need. Add a cab dude
    Overall... Very nice rig.

    add a cab

    Wow! That is a great looking rig! For some reason I have been up-sizing, instead of downsizing. Don't get me thinking!:D

  13. Very Nice F.
    I'm right behind you. I got my Demeter VTBP201s
    today, will try it out when I get home. Have the QSC 2402 and the Berg HT212. I am going to look for a HT-112 to put on top and tote along on small gigs and jammin' sessions with the buds. Man, I'm really liking the 12" speaker thing. I still like my Mesa Boogie 1x15 EV Diesel with my 400+. I used it at an outside bonfire party this weekend and it sounded fabulous too. I feel I will have the best of all the worlds now. :D

    Yeh, until the next bout of intensily painful visous evil G.A.S. hits. :eek:

    sounds great!

    yes, i think the 12 is more approproate for my smaller jazz gigs.

    i used to use a single 15, and it overwhelmed the mix a bit.

    i have a fold up hand truck that will carry all my gear with my bass gig bag over my shoulder!

    i was looking at combos amps, glad i went this route instead.

    just in case anyone wanted more info...

    from top to bottom:

    Roland V-Bass:

    A bass guitar processing system which can accurately model the world's most popular
    basses—everything from classic electrics to upright acoustic bass, fretless bass and
    more—and combines them with the sounds of the world's greatest bass amplifiers and
    polyphonic effects. That's the power of the Roland V-Bass, a floor-based processor
    which pairs breakthrough COSM® Bass technology and a new GK-2B Divided Pickup for Bass,
    taking bass guitar into bold new sonic dimensions.

    Lexicon MPX500 MultiFX:

    Expanding on Lexicon's low-cost MPX series, the MPX 500 dual-channel effects processor
    promises high-end quality reverb and effects at a budget price. Think of the MPX 500 as
    the big brother of the MPX 100 (reviewed Sept. '98). Both are two-channel effects processors
    featuring S/PDIF digital outs (24-bit on the 500, 20-bit on the 100) and Lexicon's
    24-bit Lexichip reverb engine. However, the MPX 500 provides 24-bit S/PDIF in, more
    editability, an informative LCD screen, balanced XLR and phone jacks, and a dedicated
    power switch (something missing on the MPX 100).

    Aguilar DB659 Tube PreAmp:

    Direct descendant of the legendary Aguilar DB 680. All tube gain stages and transformered
    balanced output. Parallel/series efx loop with gain control for using studio efx units or
    stomp boxes. An easy to use, one rack-space tone machine. Pair this preamp with any amplifier for fat, warm Aguilar tone. FEATURES Active/Passive inputs: One active and one passive input, for matching with the output gain of your bass. Controls the input gain to the preamp. Deep Switch: The deep switch adds 3db of broad band boost at 30 HZ. This is the instant fatness switch that makes bass sound warm and full. Equalization: Treble: Tube driven shelving type, boosts/cuts up to 12 db. The center frequency is set at 4k HZ. Bass: Tube driven shelving type, boosts/cuts up to 12 db. The center frequency is set at 40 HZ. Midrange: Tube driven shelving centered at 400 HZ. This pot is very smooth and useful for scooping the mids for funk, or adding mids that are clear and musical. Bright Switch: This switch is a passive RC pre-emphasis circuit @ 5-7 kHZ. The bright switch will add a brighter timbre to the entire range of your bass. Effects Loop: The Send pot is push/pull for line or instrument level. This allows you to use a studio efx unit (line level) or a stomp box (requires instrument level)
    in the efx loop. The parallel/series pot is push/pull for parallel or series option.
    Master Output Control: This pot controls the output level to your power amp.
