    I got my new 8 space rack case, Nady bass wireless system, 13 band digital half rack EQ, DBX 266XL comp, and a furman power conditioner. Set it all up today and mounted everything. It's amazing. I can run around the house playing bass! No wires attatched!

    Now you can go out front during the gig to see how you sound! Very freeing. Cool beans!
     
  5. What Nady wireless did you get? Ive been looking at getting a Nady MK-2B bass wireless. Even if you didnt get the MK-2b, how does it work good? Anything that you dont like about it?

    I did get the MK-2B and it's amazing for the price. rackmounting it is a bizzzle, but I got the job done with the help of a power drill. The signal is solid and no tone is lost.
     
  7. Awesome...congrats on the new gear! :bassist:

    Not unless you creat a motorized chair with an upright stand. Then you can play it at outrageous volume levels whilst rolling around on the road bassin'!

    I just tested everything to the max. the EQ is a little iffy because it makes my basses onboard EQ and the 3 band sansamp controls totally useless. It also needs to be adjusted correctly or it sounds like ass. Luckily, I've aquired the skills of EQ tweaking. The wireless is also an amazing peice of plastic. The signal is still strong from the other side of the house. It doesn't really kill tone. I mean, it is a tad clearer with a cable, but noticeable, especially at loud volume.

    Liftable, but the problem is the PV1500, which is about 50 pounds.

    my rack is just a crest ca-6 and a demeter pre, and its still a pain in the ass to haul around. If only i had a roadie, then id opt for an 8 space rack and fill er' up.

    Did you have to adjust the mute/squelch at all?

    I have the Nady MK-2B as well and am not having as much luck as you apparently are. I'm experiencing an occasional drop-out and/or interference. Not sure if it's the unit, the channel I'm on, or if I need to adjust the squelch.

    Also, I left the battery in the pack when I was done using it. Even though I shut it "off", the battery was dead when I went to use it a day or two later. Not sure if that's normal for wireless units or not because this is my first one.

    I'm thinking of returning the EQ :p. SO, I'll use that for a digital camera
