    allright... fire up the old imaginations, guys. Its time for the ultimate dream rig thread. What is your dream rig? (Basses, cables/wireless, amps, cabs, compressors, effects, tuners, etc)

    Money is no object, of course, and you may list stuff that you already own.

    Mine would be:

    Fender Custom Shop Precision Bass
    Musicman Stingray 4
    -into shure wireless transmitter

    8-space rack:
    Furman power conditioner & light module
    Shure UHF wireless receiver
    Korg DTR-1 tuner
    Ampeg SVP-PRO preamp
    Crown K2 power amp
    Crown K2 power amp

    4 Ampeg SVT 810E 8x10 cabs

    stage effects:
    Q tron envelope filter
    bassballs envelope filter
    big muff bass overdrive
    EBS bass IQ envelope filter

    SWR workingman's 4004 amp
    Eden CX410 speaker cab
    Boss ODB-3 overdrive
    Korg AX1B multi-fx processor
  5. I can't think of a dream rig because

    a) I'm not a gear head

    b) I can't even hear the sound I want in my head... I just know what I like and what I don't.

    However, I'd like to hear the set up that Bass Player used with an 8 string... the bass frequencies ran through a bass amp and the higher frequencies went into a guitar amp.

    Oh, this is easy.

    Any bass that sounds good, and a 20lb combo amp that'll handle large outdoor gigs.

    Wanna know anything else? :D

    Fender custom shop P-bass and matching J-Bass

    Warick Streamer Stage II

    Amp setup:

    Ampeg SVT-2 (maybe a few of those running, :) )

    about 5 Ampeg 8x10 cabs

    6x15 Ampeg cab (have to get it custom, of course)


    not sure, but about 15 pedalboards full of pedals, and i can get roadies to run around and push them for me :)
  19. I'd like to add...
    +Korg D (somtning)-1 rack tuner, tried of my $15 piece of crap.

    +Eden D 2x15xlt (is it xlt or just regular t?)
    +Another Eden D 4x10xlt (gotta make my head push the full 800w some how)
    +Spector NSCRFM 5 string
    +Carl Thompson 4 (with one of those groovy scrolls)
    +buncha roadies

    Thats all i want for now... I guess i'll just have to settle for this...
