    Can't help you, I married a brunette. ;)


    (and I ain't gonna say what I put in her rackspace)
     
  3. Can't say I have a redhead, but if I only had one rackspace it would probably be a tuner. A compressor would be my second choice.

    Back in the day, when I had a Redhead, I put my Stewart PA-1000 in the rack space to power alternately a SWR 4x10/SWR Big Ben. I put a little fan in the back of it, and nothing overheated. I wouldn't recommend doing this to anyone else though..

    this may sound dumb, but I'd probably put a RBI or tuner.

    I would put a good high-end tube preamp in it.

    hmmmm...just enough room for a few grilled cheese sandwiches.

    I seem to remember the local Guitar Center placing an Interstellar Overdrive preamp in their floor model. Sounded good as I recall.

    Kinda' redundant...

    A compressor makes my SWR Goliath Jr. push more punch.

    I have a similar 210 combo. A Fender BassMan 400. It also has a 1 space rack opening in it & as coyoteboy stated, I plan to put a SoundTech PS802 poweramp that I have to power an Ampeg SVT-410HLN for larger gigs.

    Otherwise, it'll stay empty.

    When I had my Super Redhead, I stuffed her rackspace full of paperback books, wedged in as tightly as possible to kill a pretty severe rattle/vibration problem. I put a blank rackspace cover over the front so the library didn't show from the front...

    I've been thinking about the answer to that question for awhile now, but all the things I keep coming up with the moderator would edit out.

    Let me just say, "It would not be a limp biscuit."

    Red. But I'd never eat it. It's full of molluscs, you know. They eat mud mixed with the fecal matter of other denizens of the deep.
