    I recently purchased a Mesa Walkabout head and two Aguilar GS112 cabs from three different TalkBass members through the TalkBass "Classified" forums. I'm very happy with all three transactions, and I saved about $500 by going used instead of new! I'm playing mostly Blues and Classic Rock on gigs, and I can get the exact tone I want out of this rig! I am now calling this set-up my "TalkBass Gig Rig". :D

    (Just thought I'd share...)

    Sweet. I've had the same rig in the past. Still got the Walkabout, but the Aggies have made way for Schroeder.

    The dual GS112/Walkabout rig is damn impressive, though.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy it. The Walkabout is a great blues head. :hyper:
  5. Very happy BTW :)

    Slater! Congrats man! It's cool saving some hard earned bread by dealing with fellow TB'ers on used gear. That's cool!

    I just scored a used Mesa Walkabout last week also. I paired it with my new-to-me (used/pre-loved) Mini-bergie HT/EX 112 rig last week-end. I was REALLY impressed with the Walkabout and two 112 cabs.

    I also have a pair of Aguilar GS112's at my rehearsal space. I haven't tried the Mesa WalkAbout head with them yet. I'll take it over there this week and see how that sounds. I'll bet it SMOKES! I love the two GS112's together. Very punchy and thick for such a small rig. But the mini-bergs are even smaller and sound HUGE. Mini-Rigs are sooo cool. It's fun to see the look on peoples faces when they go; "Huh?" That little rig can't possibly sound that big!" Way to go Slater!
