    After last night, yeah I agree with you 100 percent. The volume is different with 15s. They're quiet, until they're not :laugh:

    Then they feel like they could move earth.

    It's just different, hard to explain. But I like it a lot.

    At a show w/ 8-piece band w/ horns last weekend, stage space was tight, so I just put up one 15" cab (Avatar w/ Eminence speaker), and it sounded great, filled the room and kept up with band no problem.

    I would really like to try a pair of the Avatar SB126 cabs with the 6" enclosed midrange driver, and with the Eminence 8ohm ceramic driver he offers.

    So first off let me say this. I don't use all of these pedals on bass. I use very few actually. But I've done a lot of recording work over the last 14 months or so, and someone always shows up, yes I'm talking about guitarists, without all the tools they need. So anytime I can get a deal on pedals I grab them. Like the TC Electronics stuff in this pic, I got them on Black Friday for 33 bucks each. The analog delay and reverb from that deal are actually quite decent.

    Anyway so here they are...

    Top row, left to right
    • Earthquaker Devices Plumes OD
    • Boss Dynamic Wah AW-3
    • Boss Chorus Ensemble CE-5
    • Boss Super Chorus CH-1
    • Luxe anti-chorus
    • MXR phase 90
    Center row, left to right
    • Sansamp BDDI
    • Source Audio Mercury Flanger
    • Fender Yngvwie Malmsteem OD
    • Keeley Compressor Plus (sweetwater special skin)
    • Broughton High Pass Filter
    Bottom row, left to right
    • TC Electronics PolyTune2
    • MXR Bass Distortion
    • PigTronix Philosopher's Tone, Germanium Gold, Micro
    • TC Electronic The Prophet Digital Delay
    • TC Electronic Echo Brain Analog Delay
    • TC Electronic Skysurfer Reverb

    Nice. I find that I can hear myself better and get a more even stage sound with two - the physics of the line array come into play. And my Bag Ends are well known for synergies that happen when paired.

    Yes. They have a sort of even mellow response at low and medium volumes, but they can really drive the bus once you get up on the freeway.

    My stage volume is pretty tame, most of the time. On occasion I get to let her rip.

    I play in the Jam Band genre, where there is a wide range of stage/venue sound "conditions." It's good to have a rig that can really do the job at a small festival or a loud club... the sound person always gets a Pre-EQ DI but I think that the nuance of my tone is important to me and my bandmates during improvisional segments in particular.
