    John once told me, while I was knee deep in his basses :D that he could have all his gear, or be driving a Viper. That give you a clue?

    yeah, between my personal investment in all my basses and bass gear, and my recording gear, it works out to ~$60,000 +/- :rolleyes:
     
  5. um......:eek:

    But you know, I would personally rather spend all of that money on JT's equipment than some stupid car.

    cool. like minded people unite :D
     
  7. Only vehicle I need is one that can transport my equipment to where I'm playing at. That being said, my lincoln mark VIII can take my 1x15, 2x10's, amp, preamp, and two basses. Thank god for big, black american cars.

    But I'd be perfectly fine driving a POS truck. Just as long as my equipment could cause people's clothes to flap in the wind from the air I'm moving.

    And viper's are just penis extensions. :)

    JT, I'll have your recording console, infact your Mic preamp is enough:D

    I wouldn't mind having a viper, a recording studio, SUV, a house, basses, gears......and GIRLFRIEND!!!:eek:

    yeah, they both are excellent - the avalon and the joe meek have very useful and different sounds.

    the avalon is just plain awesome.
