  4. Wow! Very nice. You keep this in that roadcase? Do you cart it yourself or you got those (mythical ) roadie things ?

    Thanks! I've been using Fender for 2 years now and loving their gear.

    Yeah it stays in this case, its the rig that i use on Tour, haha! Yes, thankfully i have a bass tech that sets this beast up, i'm using an Aguilar SL410 at home, on smaller local shows, which is a portable dream! But this amp is awesome for the bigger shows, will try and dig out a clip so you can hear it in a live gig situation! :)

    He's looking pretty ripped these days... many muscles :D
  8. Does the back come off the case to allow for the amp’s cooling needs?

    I run a Fender neo 810 with the Super Bassman 300. Great cab, very light for an 810 and I just can't imagine a gig it could not handle.

    Kids go away, porn detected.

    Edit: I absolutely love this rack looking thingy that encases both the cab and amp in the same box. What is this thing??

    People that have never worked with them don't understand that these types of cases are not that hard to move. Generally when working with this equipment you are talking about ramps, loading docks, and freight elevators. No stairs. Add in some occasional local hands for schlepping and it's not so bad. Certainly convenient to have everything already in its place and it improves reliability.

    Very nice. Although, only one of your basses has the correct number of strings...;)
