Portable, yet plenty of volume to decimate a drum kit...

    My rig is a Markbass Nano powering a PJB Neo6 and a Markbass Tube 800 powering a pair of PJB C4 cabs. I run the Nano rig dry, and run my effects through the Tube 800 rig.

    That's a lot of stuff to lug around. I'm glad I can get "my sound" out of a Class D head and a great neo 212 cab.

    That is a great looking rig. I am genuinely curious as to the types gigs you're doing that requires a set up like this.

  5. Your defenition of portable differs to mine Haha.

    I would be gutted if that didn't hold its own against a drummer!

    Nice rig though.
  6. I've decimated drummers with a lot less.

    But nice rig just the same.

    If that's "portable", then so is an 810

    Cool rig! I can decimate my hard hitting drummer with my little fEARful 12/6 powered by a Crest Pro (not bridged and barely pushing it). Combined weight is ~ 40 pounds and I can easily carry both together.

    I've always thought of "portable," as being a one trip load in, or something that could feasibly be taken on a city bus - but that's just me. Nice looking rig, though!

    Who made your pedal board? I much prefer those ones with the riser, over the pedaltrain style.

    Portable??? I have a Revsound 212 - 38 pounds and vertically aligned like a 210, and a 4 pound class D head. That, my bass and bag for cables and such is one easy carry to my car. That's what I call portable.

    Guitarist: "Why is our bass player always late"
    Drummer: "He has a hard time finding parking spots"


    Guitarist: "Maybe we need to tell him to get something a little more "Portable"

    Edit: Sorry OP, I couldn't resist....nice rig BTW

    That is a great rig, looks like it sounds killer. I play mostly small local venues, so it doesn't meet definition of portable either:) However I do understand this is somewhat subjective.

    Portable? My Genz-benz Shuttle 6.2 docked on a 12" cab. One hand carry, 36 pounds.

    I sold the stuff that would have been like the OP's rig. It looks nice, but it's about 3 times more stuff than I have ever needed.
  17. Nice rig OP, I bet it sounds fantastic.

    No one component of that rig weighs very much at all. I suppose in that sense it is portable.

    I bring spares for most things to gigs - everything except the cabinet - so no matter how light I go it will never be a one-trip carry for me, unless you count using my rock n roller cart.

    But if there are stairs, or it's a short haul overall, I just make multiple trips as unfolding, loading, then folding and storing the cart is a bit time-consuming.

    Looks more portable than my 810 so I think it qualifies. Cool rig though

    I do not think you know what "portable" means :D

    I bet it sounds awesome though.

    Similar. I have a class D head and a 410 cab. sometimes that feels like too much! that's when i take the 115 combo. when all i need is stage volume there's sense bringing a wall of sound ime
