    I'm a semi-pro player who needs a new rig. Before I had a SWR SM-900 with a Henry 8*8". Nice size and portability but i want a little more 'thump' in the low-end.:bassist:
    My main basses are Fender Jazz and Musicman 5.
    I play rock, pop and blues in various bands. Mostly in clubs but also in bigger venues. I already have a MesaBoogie 15" cab for small clubs.
    I've narrowed it down to these choices:
    1 - Aguilar DB750 with 4*12" cab
    2 - Ampeg Classic with 8*10" cab
    3 - Gallien-Krueger 2001RB with 4*12"
    4 - Other???
    Plz feel free to state your choice and opinion behind the choice!!
    Thx

    when I was over in Europe, the Tec stuff looked pretty sweet. Like the Black Cat head and their new crazy high powered head w/ tube pre.

    OR... have you tried the new Trace Elliot gear? a Trace AH12-500 and a 4x10" or their new 2x10"/1x15" could be nice

    Ampeg SVT-6PRO, into an Ampeg SVT610HLF. Those 810 fridges are the classic sound of rock n roll, but in today's standards, they are very restricted in their tonal range. The 610's bottom porting give you wonderful improvements in natural low end rumble, without having to crank the lows in your amp. I used to run the Ampeg 610, and no matter how many times I've tried other cabs and combinations of cabs, that one 610 cab is the most capable and versatile of all Ampeg's products. The fridge is outdated and stale. The 610 gives you serious improvements in rumble with the tried-and-true Ampeg tone.


    Eden WT550B into an Eden 210XLT-4ohm and Eden 212XLT-4ohm. That's 750 watts into 2-ohms, wonderful amounts of low end rumble with tight clarity, and midrange growl and snarl that cut through a mix and let you hear yourself on stage. No biamping, no crossover, you're letting the speakers provide their portion of the tone they hear, and reproduce their best range themselves. Dead simple rig, and it's what's making me happy right now.

    OR.....

    I've had really good tone/volume/fun with my PJB 8T&16B cabinets :bassist:

    and the M500 is a nice head to compliment that rig

    I'd do the Aggie or the GK...but I'd use the Aggie 4X12 for either head. Heck...you could get the DB-750 and the 4X12...then tack on $600 and grab a GK 1001-RB II...then have the best of both worlds!
     
  9. I voted for the Aguilar DB750 + 4x12. Without competition the best rig I've ever tried.

    Ok get your drift. I've been looking at those too but it seems at little odd that they don't have the same width as the 810 and therefore looks like they don't fit with a classic head.

    The SVT-CL head is 24" wide, and the SVT610HLF is also 24" wide. The SVT-810E is actually 26" wide. That's straight from Ampeg's website.

    If you had a 8x8 and got a Ampeg 8x10 it woulden't give you more of that low end thump that you want... if you want more low end thump you should go with the 6x10 if you go ampeg.

    DB750 w/ a Bergie NV610 or NV215 would kill. I had the DB750/GS412 rig and loved it though. Either way you can't lose bro!
