    Wednesday night - MB Fusion, fearful 12.6, 44-01, Guild pilot Advanced 5
    Thursday night - Bassbone to the board, Zoom B3 in the loop, Godin Acoustibasses, fretted and fretless.
    Friday night - mB-200 buried in a custom 1x10 'combo' with matching 1x10 extension cab. bassbone, B3 and the Godin pair

    Saturday and Sunday my rig is a very sweet Cervelo R3 Sram/Dura Ace equipped bicycle and I get a couple of days off...

    Monday - MB-Fusion, fearful 12.6, 44-01 (open mic rhythm section gig, this is sort of my go to, do anything, anytime rig.) It's Beatles night and while the Lakland isn't correct ... It is industrially strong and up to the task and environment.

    Seems to that an fdeck adjustable HPF/pre would be perfect for this situation. Protect the low end of the speaker and get more volume out of it at the same time.

    Just sayin...

    i'll play a small club this weekend with no PA worth mentioning - singer and maybe the bassdrum will be amplified, no instruments.

    I'll bring my new setup:
    Markbass Little Mark II and Aguilar GS212.

    Sadly no gig over the holiday weekend. Running sound Friday night for another local band though so I still get to be around the scene. That's all that matters. Next gig Thursday the 30th.

    Well, since it worked pretty well with my new band - top 40 country - I'm gonna run it again this weekend:

    XDS-PLUS -> Streamliner 900 -> Mesa RR115

    I'm leaning towards using my '08 Am St Jazz and SUB5 for basses...
