In the last week, I've pretty much upgraded my entire rig, except my power amp*. Now, I'm using... Line6 Variax (I have two, both black, both 5 strings) - Ampeg SVP-Pro preamp... Pod XT Live is coming in the mail soon! - *just got a new power amp, too - Crown I-Tech 4000! - Phil Jones Bass 8T - Ampeg SVT Classic 410HLF === I traded my Carvin 410 and 1x18, but my Aphex Aural Xciter, Modulus Quantum 5, and Spector Euro NS-5 are for sale. I LOVE my Phil Jones cab. The Ampeg is also great, but it's really the Variax that brings my tone to where I want it. Pictures coming soon!
