    Hey guys! i've read a lot of great info here, so i'll ask something to you!

    I'm playing bass fora a "metal/metalcore/rock" band and we are just at the "composing stage", but we'll play some gigs soon and i have nothing but a custom luthier type 5 string bass based on a fodera, with two bartoline's caps. (i previously play the guitar and now im kinda "switching", so i dont really know all the bass stuff very well...) i was thinking about getting a pod and going direct and so (most cos i would use podx3 for guitars and vox too) BUT i decided go amped and now i dont know what to do... hehe :confused:

    i thought getting a peavey tour 450 or hartke lh500 (i saw some good opinions about these around here) and a 4x10 and then a 1x15 or 1x18... but the heads are only 450w/500w... so ....will this be enough for the cabs? and i dont have so many choices since im in brazil and all the great stuff (gk, ampeg, and so) are REALLY expensive here :bawl: . i was thinking about getting a PEAVEY TVX 410 or BEHRINGER ULTRABASS BB410 (is that good?) i dont know if i'll need 4x10 but im afraid not getting all the sound ill need with a 2x10 :bassist: ... Do you have any sugestions for my "future" rig? are these good ? 500w is enough for giging? (for guitar even 50w was enough :confused: )

    i like a little dist or (svt like) sound :D , so i was thinking about a sansamp bass direct driver too....

    sorry for the book! :D
    i hope you can help me... thanks

    OH! and what about Hartke VX 410? and WARWICK CB WCA 410 PO ?

    Being the owner of an LH1000, I recommend going with the LH500. Simple and LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Peavey 410 TVX is a great cabinet regardless of which head you decide on
  4. 500 watts amp and 2 cabs should be enough. In bigger venues you can always use the PA for more power. Those Peavey TVX cabs are indeed a very good deal.

    thanks for the answers! its kind of what i was expecting ... i think itll be the TVXs and the lh500 ... if i want more power i can upgrade the head and keep the cab right?! so... thanx! :)
  6. I bought the Peavey Tour 700 with the TVX 4-10 cab & the 1-15 cab. So far I love it, plenty of reserve power if I need it. Since this pic, I've rack mounted the head in nice gator 6 space case with wheels, & added a power management/surge protection. Now I'm working with my brother to make some custom road cases to keep down the damage as I play around town.

    For me it was the best bang for the buck at the moment. The whole rig cost just $799 for the head & 2 cabs, new equipment from a music store that was shutting it's doors.
