My small gig rig. Size—great, weight—not so much (but the VL-208 is easy to handle).
My small gig rig was a Bergantino AE112 with what ever amp I was using at the time, mostly a Thunderfunk 550.
They have been sold so my rig for small gigs these days is an Aguilar TH500 and either 1 or 2 Barefaced One10's.
Mine is Series III, but I feel the same.
I'm still working with the Phil Jones Bass Briefcase (2x5" 100w). Recently added the Briefcase Ultimate (same thing, twice the power) in the optional wood finish.
I think I still prefer the sound of the original verison, but the extra volume of the Ultimate is useful. The wood finish is really well done. Too pretty to gig:
Omg, these are soooo beautiful
Summit TD-100 on SWR LA-8 with replacement Celestion 8”. Louder than stock LA-8 while fuller range. Summit fits in padded tambourine bag. Excellent for acoustic practices, house concerts & small gigs. It’s nice to have big roaring sound with volume the level of other instruments. If you say take a big amp and turn it down you are missing a treat.
This has been my small room rig for many many years. It can keep up with a couple of electric guitars and a drummer, provided they know how to control their volume in a small room. It’s also my brother’s go to amp when he wants to mic a bass for recording. I’m sure it is not as refined as the more modern stuff, but it has always delivered and i’ve never had any complaints from those i’ve used it with.
ToneHammer 500 + Berg CN210 or CN112 or a Barefaced One 10. I'd like to put the Bergs together but have not had a big enough gig to justify it yet.
What amp head with that tiny swr cab?
This is my small to medium gig rig (minus the PA head). Depends on whether I use one cab or 2. In the same tonal family as my 'big rig'.
For smaller gigs I use my 2-8 and TC Electronic BH250.
It's the only bass amp my wife will let me keep in the living room LOL.
The wood itself is very nice, but the finish is really spectacular. Super deep and glossy with a very nicely done sunburst. Here's another shot...
That is pretty - very nice!!!
Small gigs? Traynor Small block or Fender Rumble 100. Only Class D and neodymium these days.
All I need is my Carvin stuff.
Zemak : very nice! glad it's so versatile for you!
all of these small rigs look great. only envy here!
I made my mini-rig for under $200.00. Bought the TC BH250 for 150.00 off of Craigslist and had the GK115LB sitting in storage. Plenty loud for most small gigs and the GK115LB has a little "Kickstand" to angle it upwards.
I'm pretty fond of my little Yorkville 50KW combo. 50W, 10" speaker. It actually sounds deeper than my Genz Benz Contour 15" combo. Not as loud of course, but plenty loud for acoustic type gigs, w/great tone. Very light, 2 channels, and even a mic. input. Pretty versatile little bugger. Just wish it had a tweeter attenuator.
It’s a 60W combo
