    I thought it would be interesting to take a poll on Schroeder owners to see what type of music they play and see if there are certain types of music that the Schroeders are more preferred to be used.

    My main gig is a reggae band...roots, dub, dancehall blended with soul.

    My other band is a 50's country/punk band. Think Hank Williams done at Ramones tempos.

    Schroeder 1212 + Mesa 400+

    mostly alt and classic rock... but I'm getting some jazz, jam, blues, soul in when I can. Ideally I'd be playing in a modern groove jazz group...

    .... unfortunately it's a lot less than I'd like right now.

    I'm using a 1212, 1210 and/or mini12

    I just got an audition request from a quasi metal group looking to move to a sound with wider appeal, I'm waiting on samples and audition date.

    Also a buddy with a 2 bit hip hop studio has looped some of my lines (house bass into the deck)... I'm hoping for a chance to back up some of his rappers live. Heh, but I don't think my middle aged, fat ###ed bald white guy look is gangsta enough :smug:

    All of the above except hip hop, plus gospel, praise & worship, 50's / 60's / 70's rock, acoustic 'coffee shop' type gigs, etc.

    I use a Schroeder 1210, powered by an iAMP 800.
  10. rock...indie....experinmental...hardcore....
  11. I said rock, but it is really more HEAVY rock, but not really metal...?

    I just made up a new song list tonight and though it ranges widely our roots are in the Blues, as are most of our songs, but we roam from rootsy originals to a version of Robert Johnson's "Crossroads"as well as many of the older Delta-Blues songs,Johnny Winter's version of "Mean Town Blues",to newer Dylan blues-rock versions,such as "You've Gotta Serve Somebody",to our own version's of covers of Hendrix's "The Wind Cries Mary",to the Rolling Stones' "Midnight Rambler",to a very jazzy-bluesy-space -age Bass-blaster version of Bill Frisell's "Outlaws"to " Smokin Gun" by Robert Cray,....then turn the corner to some Surf Rock such as " I See You Everywhere" by Chris Issak,Classics such as, "Come Together" by the Beatles, "Another Town" by Steve Earle, "Wild Night" by Van Morrison, and a great Bass song, "Coyote" by Mark Knopfler....just to name a few....:bag: and give you a better Idea. When I play:bassist: shows I play through my Yorkie XS 800 head and use my Schro :) 410-thats all I need against my two guitarists' Marshall 1/2 stacks plus more amps for stereo effects-in fact I have to be careful not :smug: to play too loud ;) ....balance,balance, balance.......:D :D :D

    I am primarily playing my Double Bass thru a TFB420 and Schroeder 1210. I'm working in 5 bands right now:
    1) Jazz and R&B quintet with piano, bass, drums, guit, and sax., called the Fried Crawdaddies. Primarily upright for me here.
    2) Rock band, 4 piece with bass, guit, piano, drums, called Rock Paper, Scissors. Primarily electric here.
    3) Blues band called Mo Betta. Mostly electric again.
    4) Blues Band...John D'agostino quartet, mix and match of DB and electric
    5) As yet un-named "alterna-country" project...kinda Jay Farrar-sih like Sunvolt or something. These guys wanted me on electric, but I'm pushing the project more towards DB:)

    I find the TFB420 and Schroeder 1210 combo to be extremely flexible, and able to cover *a lot* of ground in terms of sonic style. From clean and accurate for Double Bass, to R&B/Motown, to slammin hard rock.
    Most of you have probably heard me blather on about this, and I gotta get to work! The Schroeder is one of the best pieces of gear I've had in decades, and I really won't go to work without one anymore.

    Pop, Rock, Blues and Country from the 50's on up through today. Some instrumentals as well as some modern Japanese stuff.

    Using a 1210 but considering the switch to a 1212 neo.
  18. 60's - 90's classic rock in one band. Modern alternative in the other. I use the 1212 with a Thunderfunk TFB550. Amazing huge sound for such a small and light rig.

    My main rig is a Schro 1212 powered by a Peavey MAX 700 - I love it!. My band plays mostly alternative.

    Mostly jam band/blues type stuff with elements of funk and jazz. And a lot of rock.
