    Damn Mark, and the guys in my band think I'm a gear junky. You got me beat. I used to be heavily into the biamping, effects, stereo thing (Eg..Billy Sheehan), but drifted away from lugging all that equipment around.

    Would love to hear your rig. Unfortunately, I can't download anything on this machine. No soundcard. Got to find a way to have work buy me a soundcard and speakers. [​IMG]

    LOL, I like what you said."If my pedals go, I'm screwed."
    Definetly better think of a back up.

    For the best diagrams of guitars/bass check out http://guitargeek.com/

    For bass just look for the artists with a "b"
    after their name.

    Hey! I'm another one of those bass-cord-amp-cord-speaker guys. I thought I was the only one.

    Jeez, now that I've seen it, I wonder, what's the point?

    don't hurt me

    In my band, Second Story, I'm required to have a huge range of sounds and textures available to me. This rig gives it to me, and I never have to touch a setting on the amp or worry about doing the "pedal dance" to get just the sound I need.

    If I was playing classic rock, I'd probably be playing a 4-string P-bass through a head/cab - but since I need everything from synth-bass to distortion to chorus to... etc., the flexible solution is what I need.
