So, expensive, fancy rigs, we all love them. I don't have one, but do drool over them. LOL I have what I think is a nice rig, though older and heavy, all Hartke. Hey! Its what I could afford. So, these new expensive, sexy looking rigs,I don't think we need them. I say Jack Bruce, Stu Ham, and many others playing through Hartke and other run of the mill hardeware, and sounded great! Hell, at sam ash in huntington, long island, stu play a Hartke transporter bottom I think they called them, not even XL. I see bar bands all the time with ampeg, fender, stc, sound great. I'm thinking about upgrading to new lighter weight equipment, and as tempting as those "greatedt" rigs are, I am thinking maybe not.Truthfully, my money would be better spent on lessons. LOL I am not putting down those amps to be clear! They are so cool!
