    you could delete the thread having copied the contents and repost it. Those DB'ers do get a bit frisky and you do have a username that can be twisted

    CRACKERSHACK,

    You got off pretty easy... I guess the moat monsters must have been fed recently. It's all good. At least you didn't post this in ROSIN.

    Off to BG.

    I currently use Hartke 3500 w/ 2- 4.5XL Hartke cabs. I've owned SWR and EBS and they all sound great w/ Warwick bases.
     
  10. While no amp sounds all that bad with a Warwick played through it, I will confess my preferences for West Coast-area-made gear.

    For the church & coffeehouse gigs: SWR WM10 w/ or w/out it's matched extention cab as the need requires.

    For rock trio rehearsals & gigs its Genz Benz GBE250C powering a GB212XBT cab. This hangs with a Marshall half stack just fine, but my lead player is getting restless again.

    I just bought an Ampeg B5R head in perfect shape for $250 (see "I oughta be arrested" in Amps) and now have GAS for one of their 4ohm 4x10 HLF cabs to really shake things up....but I'd trade the whole Genz & Ampeg lot to get a nice SWR halfstack.
     
  11. EBS Gorm ET-350 and FNA Jazzman 5.
    Add some EBS Multidrive and Line6 DL4 from time to time and that's it.
    But, surprising myself, the bass I currently play 80% of the time is my Yamaha RBX 260 fretless.
    I begin to love that kind of "upright" sound ...
    Am I mad?

    SWR (for now).
     
  15. SWR Workingman's 4004, Eden cabs (210 and 115) loaded w/Carvin speakers.

    My basses are: Fortress One 5 (w/maple neck - I consistently get compliments on my tone when I play this bass); Streamer LX-5 (GREAT low end), and a Corvette 5 fretless.

    How can one tell if the cavity electronics are MEC or Basslines.

    Generally, all FNA Jazzmans are Basslines.

    I use a GK head with Avatar cabs. O yes, here are some pics :)

    2008 Corvette $$ 5-string and 1994 Fortress One 5-string, both with Warwick EMP rounds. Use a Gallien-Krueger MB500 fusion head with one GK 212 II Neo cab, pushing up to 350 watts. Probably use only 150-200 watts. The Fortress has two J MEC pups so it can really copy a Jazz bass pretty good. In a Warwick way of course. The $$ has the two MEC humbuckers with switches so I get amazing tones, moving from one to another very quickly. Currently using bridge pup on middle switch (single coil) and the neck pup on lower setting (series), then just rotate the balance back and forth. Treble on 100% and Bass on zero %. When switching to passive I get thunder bass. I don't change any of the above settings on the bass or amp, just going from active to passive goes from clean highs and untra clean lows over to thunderous bass and low mids. Think loud Raggae. So how did a 14 year old post suddenly land here?

    On most occasions, my Warwick Streamer Jazzman LX 5 and Warwick Corvette ProLine 5 are used with a Carvin B1000 head and two Carvin BRX10.2 cabinets.
