About to be back out and playing on the weekends again, Wanna go back to a rack mount preamp for a gigging Classic rock band. I have a ampeg pf-500 now, But i think it's on it's last leg. It randomly shuts off during practice and the last gig i played, it died on me as well. Thankfully I had my MXR M-80 DI and a extra poweramp on hand for the 3rd set. I like the Mxr, but i would not want it to be my main pre-amp. So here is my rig so far Fender MIJ p bass--> MXR BEF--->MXR m-80 DI---->(fill in preamp here)--->Crown XLS Drivecore 1500. Cabinets options: Mesa Engineering powerhouse 410 or Earcandy Bassbomb 212 I will prolly mainly use the Mesa because i dont wanna scratch up my 212, Unless a bigger show comes up that i wanna bring the nice cab out for. Also other bass options are my SX jazz clone, A Epiphone Thunderbird with Hipshot Drop tuner or Squire HM-5 and lastly, My Ibanez BTB405qm (which is for sale!!!!) I think I covered every detail so far. So Now i need to figure out which preamp to try out next. So far i have owned the Following: Peavey Tour 700 Sansamp BDDI Ampeg Svp-Bsp (might look for another) Sansamp RPM (might buy again) Fender TBP-1 Yep, i think thats it. Ok TB wizards, Do you magic!
