    Hey just wanted to post my little practice rig setup and see what others are using as a bedroom/basement practice rig. Mine is a Fender Rumble 100 15" combo, Behringer Xenyx 1002B Mixer and a laptop to run drum loops to the input of the amp. The mixer doesn't really get used unless I wanna play around with some effects, but I could have a guitar player and myself plug in to the mixer and run it out to the bass amp for a practice session. Let's see your practice rigs!

    Mine is a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.2 with a 12" Genz Benz cab.

    Plenty loud and super portable. Nothing like 300watts of tube power, but still a great practice rig.

    or JBL G2


    Either work great for small gigs too. Both have xlr outs.

    Fender Bassman 25. Great little practice amp. It is handy because you can run a computer or MP3 into it via the stereo RCA input. Also, you can either run through the speaker or use headphones that bypass the speaker. So, you can hear both your music and the bass through either the speaker or headphones. I think they changed them recently so you may have to get one used to get it set up like this one.

    Hi,

    For practice I plug my bass into the line-in of my computer and use headphones. For rehearsals and gigs I'll use any combination of these:

    Amps-
    GK 800RB
    Fender Bassman 100

    Cabinets-
    GK 410 Neo
    Carvin RL 210
    Carvin RL 115

    040409_1704a.

    GK-newcab-sm_zps3344c574.

    DSCF2770b_zps1586411f.

    DSCF2917b_zps8dae4639.

    What I'd like to have is one of the new microbass heads. I'll have to save up some more gig money. ;)

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    It's cool to see a couple other Fender bass combos posted. My Rumble 100 1x15 is nothing special and wont blow you away sound and power wise, but it really gets the job done and is more than adequate. For it's price point, it is a great amp and can be used for small live gigs. I've tested out an Ampeg BA115 combo and it had better sound but they are more expensive new and tend to hold there value better in the used market...as they should for the better sound quality. But, the Fender Rumble series gets you a darn good bass amp for a good price!

    TC Electronic RH750/RS210/RS212.

    A bit excessive, but sounds great. I also use it for most gigs these days. Also very convenient for using various basses, which I do a lot at home.

    My other rig is in our rehearsal studio, the TC rig sits at home between gigs.

    For home practice, I still like my ancient GK200rcb head into a home-made 15" cab with an EV15M speaker in it. Sounds really good at condo-friendly volumes, and doesn't require any tube warm-up time.

    SWR Baby Blue II with an EBS Microbass II. This essentially gives me 4 different channels/sounds available at the touch of a button.
    This is also my primary recording rig.
