  4. How about ...What is the heaviest rig with the least amount of power that costs the most? My old bassman 100 with the matching 4x12 should be considered. :D

    Groove Bass for sure. It's only like 8 ounces and pumps out 12,000,000 watts and it cost like 3 dollars and 85 cents...

    paypal my account and I will send you a custom amp I made. It requires you to replace the fuses in your house with pennies. It also works as a time machine. The wattage depends on the current your house can take before the lines ignite.

    Im also offering the dedicated special edition Nepolion Time Machine, I take paypal only.

    best answer ever..........

    that will be my new response to queries for a super cheep super light powerful bass amp.

    i think all of us can remember that sad day when we discovered that our hobby wasn't cheap. hey, at least we don't play a really expensive instrument. there's a cat out my way who makes cellos. only $25 grand. :eek:

    That's kind of a bargin for a quality cello, unfortuneatly the real character of wood instruments doesn't start to show until they age for about 50-100 years. That's why orccestral grad violins and cellos can run into the millions, the really nice sounding ones are 200+ years old.

    I'm afraid in that price range you are looking at something in the used market, probably without tubes, with less wattage than you need, and with a very high F.R. (fartage ratio), probably in the form of a.....sort of like.....maybe.... a.....Combo Amp. :meh: :eek: :eyebrow:
  16. 1.21 gigawatts? looks like a Delorean? brings back those geat vintage tones? I rented mine for about $4.00.
  17. I was talking to a bass player in the Minnesota Orchestra. He was showing us his bass and I asked him how much he paid for it. His answer was "$250,000 - but I leave my good one at home." :meh:
