    Is it a new amp, a new cabinet technology, a Gibson bass that tunes itself (just kidding), strings, software, effects, accessories...whatever.

    Just don't name the product, tell us why its a game changer for bass players.

    I am kind of intrigued by the Bare faced Amps. I am always on the look out for less weight to load in and out.

    The ability to play a show in front of 150+ people without PA support through an amp I can carry in one hand.

  4. PA mixes controlled by iPads & smart phones. Do your own monitor/IEM mix.
     
  5. I love the flexibility of the SA Aftershock pedal, especially if you use the dual channels in series or parallel, effectively turning two, three, or more pedals into just one.

    In the last 5?
    How good pedals have gotten and that I don't need to schelp rack gear.

    If there is a good backline (cough, cough GK) then I can take everthing I need on a plane and gig anywhere in the world.
     
  12. Neodymium speakers. Less to schlepp.

    Totally agree. I went from a rack mounted pre amp/amp weighing about 30 pounds and a Hartke 410xl at close to 90 pounds to a micro head (GK MB500, GB Shuttle 6.0 and now Quilter Bass Block 800) and a Hartke HyDrive 410. I was gigging every weekend and cutting the weight in half or less was a pleasure. I’ve never been more pleased with my tone as well. Less weight and great sound, what’s the downside?

    For me it's the L+HPF. I didn't know about this in a pedal form until I joined TB.
