    I love looking at what guys play thru live.

    Here's a pic of my ultra light, yet super capable rig. Barefaced Compact + GK MB500 racked with a dual 15 band graphic eq. Its blurry but its there.

    Please post a pic of your rig on stage. :cool:

    not a great pic, but it's the most recent one i have, and everyone's sick of seeing the b-15 pic. so that's my current workhorse rig, a micro vr stack...i recently made it a double stack, though. mic'ed with a heil pr40, no di. i believe we were playing "rockin' robin."

    pardon the lime green shirts...it was st pat's day, and those were the only green t-shirts we could find on short notice ;)

    The full size version of my avatar pic has my rig in it. It's cool seeing people's rigs in action!

    Jimmy, it continually amazes me that you can get by / be satisfied with a rig so small as the micro vr rig... especially with so many other musicians in the mix.

    Isn't it hard to hear yourself?
  8. ha Just by one cab. ;) I do want to get a third 2x15, at which point I might just add it to the rest, or ditch the 4x12 and 18 and just run 6 15's.

    Yea! Excuses to post pics!


    My main rig #1, Bassman 300 into Sunn 2000s cab (no live pics of my full 2000s setup). As is apparent from the pics, it's large, in charge, and seems to be constantly looming right behind me. It also gives great lower back massages.

    nope. i tilt it back.


    i bought a second cab, but it wasn't for volume reasons. our drummer hits medium to medium heavy, and everyone else just turns up enough to hear themselves. we let the pa do the heavy lifting and just go for an overall onstage mix that sounds good and balanced.
  13. I always love seeing that rig. The cab really makes it, I love the flag on the wood cab. Having 300W of tubes sitting on top doesn't hurt, either.

    always love seeing your cool wood finish cabs, charlie. what kind of bass are you rockin' there?

    oh, and why does the guitar player have his combo turned backwards but the mic is in front?
