    Hey guys painless again. i just got a hartke amp. the sound is awsome and it works better then the amp i was using(an acoustic guitar amp with 10 watts) I hartke i got is a B150 with 65 watts that shake the house. it makes my guitar sound the right way. i am also looking at some crate amps. What do you guys play? :bassist:

  2. I just sold my pro rig
    so Im playing through a 10 watt Squier Sidekick guitar combo with 5" driver
    can I hear a rock on???
    I didnt think so

    Crates can get a bad rap
    but I have an old SLM Crate guitar amp
    and its never failed me I did blow the original Celestion 12 so I just threw in a Rockford Fostgate from my car's subwoofer box
    try a few of them as I am not sure of the current series of Crates

    LMAO (I hope you meant that to be as humorous as I took it :))

    Painless, I played thru a Hartke 3500 head for a couple of years, really dug it... I wasn't a big fan of Hartke's speakers so I ran it thru a GK 4x10 cab and later an Aguilar 2x10 + Ampeg 1x15 setup... right now, I play a Gibson GB440 amp thru that Aggie 2x10. Really enjoy it for practicing and the occassional jam with friends.

    painless here, thanks for the info guys
  6. My TBC into a Morley A/B/Y Box, one side to a boss odb3 to a behringer BX4500H to a crate 2x15 and the other side to an Ampeg V6-B into a Peavy 2x10
  7. I use a Trace Elliot AH-250 head going into a Mesa Boogie 115 cab. But usually for gigs, I just bring my Line6 Bass Pod XT Live and let the PA do the work instead of my back. :cool:
  8. I have 3 that I use. My small one is an SWR Basic Black, which is a simple tube preamp 15" combo amp. My Mid size is an SWR Super Redhead with 18" Big Ben subwoofer. And my main gig amp is an SWR SM-900 head with the 8X10 SWR Megoliath cabinet. This keeps all of my BASSES covered!! :)

    Fender 400PS
    Acoustic 320

    A bunch of others that don't get used much:

    Sound City X188
    Mesa Boogie D-180
    Trace Elliot Boxer 65
  10. I don't play an amp, but, I do play basses, the signal goes from the bass to the amp, to which it reproduces the signal into sound. As for amps that I use.. BBE QSC and Groovebass.. which one do I like better.. the BBE and QSC combo.

    There's only one? It must be worth a lot. I'd actually thought Ampeg sold more than that. :p

    I like Hartkes myself. I've also got an SWR Working Man's 12 that's ok for acoustic gigs, but not with a whole band. Of course my baby is my 1963 Ampeg B-15.

    Also bring a QSC2402 and these to stack vertically on my side of the stage.
    Saves the back but still hammers low notes:

    All Gallien-Krueger here :D

    I'm running a GK 2001RB head, and a stack of Neo cabinets (a 212 and a 115). I doubt I'll never replace my rig, because it can get me awesome and LOUD rock tones that put Ampeg rigs to shame, IMO :D
