    Eden WT-300 (used as a pre-amp and backup)
    Carvin DCM100 (pure power)
    2 8ohm Eden D-410XLTs (one at home, one at practice, both for gigs)

    Main Bass- MTD Kingston 5er (ADGCF)
    Secondary (But not backup)- Ibanez GSR200 (GCGC)

    I'm working on a new 5 string bass, and the Eden WT-300 might be on on death row...SWR IOD is not in the house, but it is loitering in the front yard.
    As soon as I get the amp situation handled, then I'm aslo gonna build myself a rack case (between 4 and 6 spaces, not sure yet).

    A long time ago, I had an old SVT with a 810 cab.

    Then I had... nothing (only home studio working, so no rig needed).

    Then I bought a SVT-CL with a 810 cab. Sounded poor.

    Replaced it immediately with a SVT2-Pro with a 610 cab. Then fell into creativity crisis (see appropriate topic in Misc. section).

    Currently have nothing but... I'll have confirmation this weekend for an old SVT with a 810 cab. (yep, just like starting over :D ) Found one used for EUR 1,000 (approx. USD 900), in VG condition. Just have to wait to know if the seller can ship it (he's hundreds miles away from me, and I currently have no time to travel).

    All the best,

    I would like to add an SWR IOD to the Redhead and I am going to need to buy a good quality fretless 5 string in the next year or so. I am gonna need to do a good deal of shopping around on that one. Right now I am looking at getting a fretless Dingwall or an F bass BNF5.

    For my rock band, I'm using an SWR SM-900 and Aguilar 2x10 and 2x12 cabinets. I've also got a Furman Power Conditioner in my rack. I'm playing my Reverend Rumblefish, tuned down a whole step, and I plan on using my soon-to-be-completed Curbow Jazz bass with that band.
    With a roots-rock side project I'm doing with a former bandmate, I'm using my SWR Workingman's 15 combo. It's perfect for lower-volume rehearsals and gigs, and I've been using it for recording, too. On that gig, I'm playing my Ovation Magnum strung with TI Jazz Flats.
    I'm also about to get a poppy-punk thing going with a couple of friends, and on that one, it's gotta be my Alembic Exploiter, at least initially.. I may go back to the Reverend later. And for that band, I get to use the guitar player's Ampeg SVT and 8x10 cabinet! :D :D :D
