Well, I decided to go component, should have everything in next week. I sold my SWR **-****(name edited to prevent flame war) since spending $300 dollars on its floor pedal was more expensive than just selling it on ebay and buying all of this stuff(cost me around $1100ish, where as the **-**** and pedal would together be worth about 12-1300ish(ebay price of head, plus new price of pedal). I probably would have kept it seeing that I still have a warm spot in my heart for the "cursed" thing, but I need to be able to switch my effects, and don't have much money right at the moment. Here's what I got- QSC PLX1602(w/input sensitivity mod) Sansamp RBI Boss TU-2 tuner Boss CEB-3 chorus(pretty much the only effect that I found I use, and not very much at that; I'll probably try some fancier chorus pedals later) I bought the QSC from lord valve, for those who don't already know, he is very cool and arguably has the best prices on QSC stuff. He says that with the input mod, the RBI should be able to drive the amp to full power. The QSC will be running bridged(1600w) at 4 ohms in to my Mesa powerhouse 1000, so this thing should kick butt. I was prompted in to this last week when I di'd my bass in to our mixer board and ran through that in to my DJ's old crest monitor amp and in to my regular cab. I sadly must say that it spanked my former amplifier(yeah, go ahead guys- told you so, neener, neener, whatever...). I guess the true test of all this will be when I plug it in. I think I should be happy having seen the comments from people with similar setups on this board. I'll update this post next week when I get everything.
