    I've been in the market for a good head and cabinet for too long. I acquired that 400+ used for an amazing price off of a trusted local shop. I decided that I would take the plunge with the NV425 since they won't be made anymore, and the combination of that cab and head is breathtaking...

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Yeah, there are. And believe me, every one of 'em is the result of jealousy on my part! :p

    Seriously - that's a sick, sick setup!

    Great icon, Boulder - my favorite movie ever.

    That's just where I tried it today because I saw a picture with that eq on someone else's rig. I actually play a Rumblefish with D'Addario Chrome flats so no slapping for me really :cool:
    I just got this in my room and all setup last nite so I haven't even had the chance to get down until today (as there is no way in hell I was going to disturb the neighbors at night).

    Nice setup! I usually don't use the graphic EQ; the parametric is plenty powerful.

    thats awesome.

    i swear, when it comes to heads, used is sometimes the best way to go. not Ebay style (unless you wanna take a risk) but from a local shop, especially one you trust.

    definitely a kicka$$ setup. is that 3x10 1x12?

    Nice stuff. I think I would like the NV215 better, and an old ass SVT, but your rig is pretty heavenly.

    I'm looking for a tube head for my 425 as well. How does the 400+ match up?

    This setup is 3 10" and 1 15" :). It matches up extremely well, this thing is ridiculous. I have already changed that EQ curve because it is not feasible for my house... I played it like that for a total of about a minute and it rattled every door and window. I have been playing some pedals through it for the past hour. So far I have played my Jacques Tube Blower and man... now I understand what it is to truly get that completely overdriven sound but with HUGE bottom end to still drive the rhythm. I also have tried my pigtronix EP1 through it and man... straight up liquidy. I'll mic it and throw up sound samples in a few days (i can't right now because my mic is not at my house).

    Dude, that would be awesome.
    I don't have much experience with effects pedals but have been wanting to try some through this rig.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated... being that we have twins n all.:hyper: :bassist: :D (don't pay attention to my eq as I snapped this pic before I even started her up:meh: )
