    Yes. I use the PF350 with them, albeit as just a power amp.

    Winery gig Saturday night. I wanted to use my new dUg pedal again, but decided to go back to some top favorites as a reset, so to speak. These and the dUg all sound great in their own way.

    ...and yes, brought a Sadowsky this time. :D

    Had a private Kentucky Derby theme partu gig yesterday.

    I went with my light and cheap rig. I've never used this combination live before, and have never used the amp live before.

    Ibanez Mikro>EHX Battalion>Crate BT 1000.

    I picked up the amp for $35 and cleaned all the pots, and it sounds surprisingly good. We have a sensible drummer, and the little100 watter was pleny loud. I don't know if I trust it yet and had a Rumble in the car, just in case.

    I really like the Battalion.

    Ampeg SVP/Crown xls1002 into a Kustom 2x15. Played my custom bass with Bartolini classic PJ pickups and Warmoth J neck.
    Great sounding rig....

    How heavy is that Kustom cab? How’s upper end clarity? One saying it’s a 1968 just popped up locally for what seemed pretty cheap, just wondering.

    Many drummers I play with are the last ones done loading out. This drummer is the first one heading home!

    Well, before I replaced the speakers with Eminence Kappas it weighed in at about 100lbs. The Kappas weigh about 15lbs then the original CTS speakers. Never had a problem with upper end clarity before and after the speaker replacement.
    I'd be interested to see the inside of '68 if you buy it.

    Nice to see you got the Reidmar 750 out again. :thumbsup:

    Edit: Appreciate all the info you gave me on it. I'm loving it.

    Glad it's working out for you! In fact, you were my inspiration for bringing it to this gig, and man-oh-man, it sounded great with those Changelings! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :thumbsup:

    I used to play through a Crate BT220 head with the matching BT215E cab and also used a BT220 combo for practice .

    I agree it is a pretty nice sounding combo, however the head and combo both gave me a ton of trouble cutting out on gigs which is extremely annoying and embarrassing.

    I went through 3 heads, 2 combos and an Ampeg BA115 with LOUD Technology before I finally threw in the towel.

    Loud had great CS but horrible QC. I honestly hope you don't run into the same issues I did so please do take a back up to each show just in case.

    Sorry for the derail just giving you some friendly advice. I did like it when it worked.

    Awesome! I used that head on Saturday to do my own little mini shootout with different cabs. Awesome head.

    Next gig I will be using it with two TC K212 cabs stacked vertically and the following show with my Genz Benz UBER cabs.

    Again thanks for the info, I love that head. :hyper:

    Two days ago, outdoor festival. The sound guy called me to say not to bring an amp - he had a surprise for me.

    4x12 Aggie pushed with Mesa Big Block 750. Not mine, but provided back line. Really nice.

    Mine would have been two Subway 1x15's with Genz Benz head.

    So... this was just posted to FB. That scaled down drum set was my other rig for the weekend. :) But only for one song. The drummer and I switched instruments as a goof during break time (it was a chill gig) and the guitarist joined us for a blues jam. I just hope there's no audio/video, I'm rusty as hell. :bag:
