    Bx500 and Brx10.2 cab.

    Played a bit on it. Sounds awesome, and loud! I've been keeping the volume between 0 and 1. Haha

    That's a great rig. I have gigged with that same rig around Nashville a decent amount, and it always got the job done. Congrats!

    I got one of those cabs when they first came out like in 06'

    They are light and sound tight!

    I liked the BX500 so much, I bought it's big brother, the BX1500. Great amp with loads of options, and not that much more than the BX500.

    I've got the BX amps and 2 of the Neo 210 cabs. In my opinion you can't go wrong.

    Sweet! I had been toying with the idea of buying one of these heads. Do these amps do distortion, or are they more of a clean amp?

    They are very clean. You can't get much tube drive even with the gain cranked, as far as I have found.

    I've liked my BX500, aside from an overheating incident on a hot day where it decided to cut out 90 minutes into a rehearsal. The internal fan needs an upgrade, IMO.

    Yeah, no distortion. Like, none. Haha. I plan on getting a vt bass deluxe to run in front of it anyway.

    I love mine. I drive it at 4 ohms (two 8 ohms cabs) and the headroom is amazing.

    I recently bought a BX500. It's light, and very versatile.

    I plan to build a combo with it... Happy to have it!
