    This might be better in the Amps Forum.

    My main gig amp is an Eden Metro combo.

    At church, I play through an SWR Basic Black combo.

    At the practice shed, I keep my Peavey TNT 130 combo.

    In the bedroom, next to my PC, is my Fender Bassman 25 combo, the best sounding and loudest combo under $350.

    and i Practice (privately) through this.

    It's an older model, and it has to be the best practice amp i've come across, exceptionally made, tank-like in fact.

    However i have seen some newer variations of it when everything was ok at TE, perhaps transistional models, which looked very cheap.

    oh well, at least i have Ernie EA

    Although theres not much between them in size, but the EA is a hell of a lot heavier and louder :).

    I play through them with Beverley overwater and Fiona "fretless yamaha 5"

    and we're all very happy at the moment, my ulimtae setup is near completion, hahaha

    When I was shopping a couple years ago I found that at the $350 price point the Trace Elliot Boxer 30 trumped the Fender 25 by a very large margin in both sound quality and quantity. The newer Fenders may be better though, that was a few years ago. :)

    This is definitely better for the amps forum.

    My "big" rig is a 1966 Fender Bassman amp and an old (white label) Eden D210T speaker.

    My practice amp is the aforementioned pre-Gibson Trace Elliot Boxer 30 which I love.
     
  7. i have a SUNN 2x15 Cab, and a Hartke 3500 Bass head

    What about your beloved AMP heads, Brad? Still have them? Still use them?

    Yes, I still have two of them. I don't see the honeymoon being over anytime soon with the H&K though. It took over ten years to find something I thought was a big enough improvement over what I was using to make a change.

    I also still have the Ampeg B-100R and still dig it too. And the Polytone MiniBrute III and Yamaha PB-1 and several power amps. And too many speakers though I have cut down.

    The current rig can more than handle any gigs I do.
     
  11. The big rig is an Ashdown ABM900 with Ashdown ABM 4x10 and 2x8 cabs. Compact rig is an iAMP 350 (which should be here soon--had to get it replaced by EA because Bass Place ignored me) and an ABM-Mini 110T cab. I'm hoping to get a CXL112 when I can afford stuff again.

    Carvin DCM1000 (regular power)
    Two 8 ohm Eden D-410XLTs
