    I'm just curious to know what rig everyone is rocking now-a-days. Let's start with your primary bass into what you're rocking.

    Here's mine.

    Lakland 4-94 (w/ Bartolini's)
    Into Orange AD200B
    From Speaker out into Radial JDX DI
    (If you're unfamiliar with this particular DI visit:
    From that DI I split into my Bergantino NV610
    Also from the DI I run the XLR out into a UA LA610 Mic Pre
    From the LA610 is my direct signal.
    I also mic the cab with a EVRE20.

    That's the roadmap through my rig. Pictures to come.

    Completely forgot my Pedal board...

    From my bass into Eventide Pitchfactor
    Pitchfactor > JHS Pandamonium Fuzz
    Pandamonium Fuzz > Boss TU2 Tuner
    Then to the Orange AD200B

    My motto is K.I.S.S...........................!

    Either a '08 MIA Fender Jazz or a Warmoth "FrankenJazz" fretless
    Either a GK 800RB or a 700RBll through a GK Neo 410 and/or a GK Neo 210

    No effects, stomp boxes, DI's or wireless stuff for me.

    Nothing new here. [sigh]
  5. I went low budget last week & actually had great results: Precision>B2.1u(just for the tuner/volume pedal)>delay>70's Crate 1B 30-watt 1x12 combo. I also went from the Zoom's DI into the PA, and it sounded better than ever(small Sunday night church service w/me, drums & one gtr/singer).

    What's the blue pedal?

  18. Well, I'm in two bands, so my primary bass changes...

    Yamaha BB3000MA (for my Rock cover band)
    Hanewinckel Vintage Draken 5-string (with Nordstrand Big Singles and 3B-5b preamp for my Variety cover band)
    Carvin BX1200
    Zoom B2.1u multi connected to Effects Loop
    LDS 15/6.5 cab

    I generally just run a direct signal to the PA using the DI on my BX1200.

    This pic was taken before I bought the Zoom and my Turbo Tuner
