    I play it all. Whatever works for the gig. Q+
    Call that stage setup.. The OREOS! LOL

    Are we all too PC to not think that would be cute?

  2. Hi Fuzzbass,
    What is the headless bass? I like that! :bassist::hyper:
    I'm glad you are enjoying the dUg pedal. I soooo wish they would do the same thing with the GED2112 pre.
    Best wishes,

    The GED2112 made me wish I still had my rack rigs! I used to own RBI, RPM, and VT-RM. A pedal version of the GED is a great idea.

    The headless is a custom Zon Sonus 519: fancy present to myself for getting older. Fortunately I survived the 9.5 month build time. :D

  4. Very cool!:) I've never had the opportunity to try out a Zon. I've wanted to try out a Sonus for the longest time.
    Take care,

    Last night we crammed into a small, unremarkable tavern, but still tried to play rock star!

    Behind the smokescreen:
    Sadowsky NYC Ultra Vintage P5
    Martin Keith Elfin Plus 5
    Reiner Amplification VHF700 head
    Bergantino HG310 cab
    Darkglass B7K Ultra
    Tech 21 DP-3X (dUg Pinnick distortion)
    Reiner Amplification Gasoline overdrive

    A TV fifteen is on the GAS list for me....

  9. Hey @Fuzzbass. You seem to be using that HG310 a darn lot. You're still digging it lots? Iirc, you like/ have a NV610 and, like me, love that as much as I do my NV215. I usually use my Fender Super Bassman all tube beast, but I'm also using a B|Amp, so.... another Berg cab is on my GAS list.

    Last nights gig I used a TC Electronic BH800, which I have not used in a very long time, with 2 TC Electronic K212 cabs, 2 Sterling Ray 34's, an ESP/LTD B-4z through a Line 6 wireless system.
    I usually stack the cabs vertically, but I thought it was going to be a pretty loud show and didn't want the speakers closer to my ears so I stacked them horizontally. Luckily it wasn't that loud and I could still hear everything perfectly, so I just left them horizontally.

    Right on, I love mine and somehow it seems to have become the default amp for this cover band. Which is fine, it sounds great but I would sure like to use my Mesa Boogie more.

    Given what I know about your level of patience, 9 1/2 months of waiting for a bass is mere child's play.....;)

    Wow, good eye: the HG310 (or two) has had a loooong run of gigs. I definitely prefer the NV610, but the HG310 sounds nice and when I get my rig dialed in properly I forget that it has neo drivers.

    Two reasons I've been using the HG so much. First, I got a bunch of gigs with a new rock band, but almost all of them are at unfamiliar venues, and I do not want to risk having to haul the NV up a flight of stairs or cram it onto a teeny stage. Second: as of this year my long-running rock band is no longer playing three venues that had wide stages and easy load-in that allowed me to use NV610 -- that was a result of bad luck with one venue, and bad behavior by a certain bandmate at the other two. :rollno: I really really miss the NV, but my ears are adjusting to the HG.

    I got it for $30 at a Goodwill store (that store has been good to me.) It had static and would cut out when messing with the volume ofcaoccasion. I cleaned the internals well and replaced one pot, and it has been great ever since.

    This was a "travel light' gig, but was also close to home, so my wife could have brought me my Rumble if I had needed it. I always have a DI besides the DI built in to the Battalion (which is great.) A DI is always a last resort when we play with the small P.A.

    From last night's tavern gig with my all original blues/funk/rock power trio. I played the Zon because the hot rod bass was picking up noise -- apparently it isn't shielded and/or grounded well. The Zon was super quiet (noise-wise) and sounded fantastic.

    I used my two newest pedals: Tech 21 DP-3X (dUg Pinnick sig), and OvniFX Smoothie compressor. The dUg was used for two-thirds of the gig. I used the Smoothie by itself for a few songs, and with the dUg for a few songs. And I used no FX for a few songs.

    Nice and easy backyard wedding tonight with an acoustic sextet, doubling as Soundguy. Beers in the cooler and a buffet, with dogs running around and everyone dancing. Great night out.
