    just got one of these and now that giggin season is slowing down I'm gonna dive into it. Other owners ... what is your setup to amplify these eubs? Thanks Talkbass.
  2. Mine's a WAV4, but I run it through a Radial Bassbone OD into a BG250/208. There's an XLR out for patching into the PA, if more sound's needed. If I bypass the bass amp and go straight from the OD to hi-fi speakers, I really do get the "my bass, just louder" effect.

    All you actually need, though, is a high-impedance buffer before feeding it into an amp - 10M seems to be the general preference.

    anyone else?? Not just the WAV but any other EUB, what do you use?
  4. A Clevinger with a homemade piezo disk pickups under the bridge feet and a 10 MegOhms impedance buffer. For an EUB you might want a cab with a bit more low end than for an acoustic DB. A 12" is fine, 10" can work, but better don't get something smaller unless you have a special cab with a strong low frequency range.

    A Fishman Pro EQ II through a Markbass CMD121-P or a powered PA cab.

    Currently getting back into EUB. Got a WAV4, a Barefaced Super Twin and A an Orange Terror 500W. Wish I had a 1000W but I missed out by about a week :)

    Forgot how physically challenging these EUB are...

    I run my MK studio into a HPF pre 2 into a Zoom MS100bt (acoustic sim - eq - light reverb) then into either MarkBass micro 801 with a second 8" cab or PJB flight case 150
