  2. Everything there was pretty nice. Kevin Brubaker has a new modular preamp system that allows you to switch out preamps in no time flat. I liked everything that I saw; my favourite bass of the show was the Bolin NS. The only thing that I really thought I might want to buy was the Accugroove cabs. Mark Wright from Accugroove gave me a really comprehensive demo of his whole line and it was very informative and eye-opening. I'm thinking of getting a pair of the single 12's or an El Whappo cab.

    Thanks to Benavente Guitars for hooking me up with the pass.
