    Post your "ugly" bass rig here! I want to see dirty, 20 year old cabs that been through hell, Bass heads that fell on the floor and have a crack in it but you still gig with it, home made cabs with no paint or carpet, mix matched speakers from rival companies, I want to see cabs and heads that have been through hell and back twice but have a sound that can't be beat!!

    Show me your ugly bass rigs!!! Here's mine:

    Ugly as hell and bulletproof. Wish I still had pics of my Hartke stack. The carpet on the cabs was all balled up, the grilles were rusted, the head was missing several EQ slider knobs, and it only had half of the volume knob due to a long fall from the top of the stack (not my fault, drunk singer tripped over my cable) after which I went out and bought the Road King case I still have today.

    My current rig.

    1972 Fender Bassman. It is in wonderful shape electrically, but a mess cosmetically. It is staying as it is.

    Here is my little 23 year old. The stickers started a long time ago, I think they are holding it together.

    Thanks Jimmy!

    It is my second Bassman 100. It is apt to be my main amp for the rest of my career.

    here's mine, which i've also posted in rigs of doom thread. the head and cabs are all quite mismatched and tacky looking (though i prefer it that way), and the 410 is pretty beat up. also, i had the trace on it's side for this shot which looks pretty awkward.

    There be some sweet rigs there folks. I still got some old stuff, but sadly my old automotive body work and detail skills, and compulsive behaviour causes me to start getting bugged when something gets beat up, so there I am regluing torn tolex and messing around with touchup work as soon I can. I appreciate seeing these fine gig warriors. Thanks!

    Your "ugly" bass rig is the exact one I've been looking for. I want to find one exactly like that. Ugly or not, you've just given me GAS. Thanks.:atoz::D

    Beleive it or not, I got rid of my goldline cabs for this!
  17. I actually use my Trace 1518T on its side, my 410 is exactly the same width as the trace on its side so it makes my stack look nicer.
