Okay, yes, I am fairly new to playing bass with only twelve months under my belt. After years and years of playing guitar I came to my senses early last year and when I did I thought I had a pretty good idea of the sound I was looking for. I thought that sound was Ampeg. I started off thinking I'd keep it simple and picked up a used B2 head and an SVT-210HE cabinet. Progressed from that to an SVT-3Pro with Ampeg 4x10 and 1x15 cabs. I guess I still wasn't content though since I kept looking.... Last month I traded a Lakland Skyline for a MarkBass Little Mark II, which I immediately fell in love with but still felt as if it was lacking something running through the Ampeg cabinets. Today I picked up a Schroeder 410R and I think I've finally found IT. This is heaven. It's amazing the difference, and I really don't know what else to say but DAMN! This combination sounds great! And this cabinet brings everything to life. An example: My '82 Ovation P bass has a series/parallel switch on it. With the Ampeg rig, switching it one way or the other made very, very little difference in the output. With the LMII and the Schroeder the bass goes from bright and almost cheerful to dark and brooding with the flick of a switch. Flat out amazing....I can't even describe how impressed I am with these two pieces of equipment. Now it looks like I've got a couple of amps, cabinets, an EQ and a compressor to unload. I just don't see myself using them again.
