    Bass: Wal Mk2
    Amp: Trace Elliot AH400SMX
    Cab: Trace Elliot 1810X (which sounds spectacular and has the added bonus of rustling the anti-mixed-drivers crowd)
    Pedal: Trace Elliot Transit-B

    Das it mane.

    Sorry, I cannot choose any of my children that I must sacrifice... I had to eat a lot of Ramen Noodles to get to this point, just do what you gotta do to me... But that Canadian bass gear underground voyage sounds interesting.

    I'm basically already there:

    Ibanez Premium (Nordstrand Big Singles)
    Fender Rumble Studio 40
    Digitech Drop pedal (which I haven't used in months, because the stiff neck on my Ibanez allows me to down-tune w/o issues)

    I do have one other amp, however:

    VOX hybrid
    but it's tiny & for pure convenience & tube-sounds
    It's also great for Marshally sounds on guitar.

    I keep thinking that this would be a great idea right before I buy something else......

    G&L JB5
    Genz Benze Streamliner
    Barefaced Super Compact

    This would be so freeing.....more room....less worry....oooooh shinny!

    I’ll play.

    ‘74 Ripper, ‘69 B-15N Portaflex w/CTS 15”
    speaker, no pedal needed with above combination. But if I had to pick a pedal then it’d most likely be my ST-300 tuner or possibly the Supro 1310 Harmonic Tremelo I guess.

    I guess I'll go with the B-15, Tone Hammer pedal, and one of them Japanese 60's Jazz bass reissues...I really like those.

    Well, seeing as how I have only...

    -one amp (Trace Elliot 1210 combo head)
    -one cabinet (Mesa Powerhouse PH-1000)
    -one pedal (Darkglass B7K Ultra, unless multi-fx units are allowed in this scenario, in which case I would use my Line 6 Bass Pod XT Live)

    ...that just leaves me with which bass to choose.

    Think I'll have to go with my Dingwall Afterburner 5 string with Nordstrand Big Splits pickups (new pickups not pictured below). It's a real toss-up between that and my 4 string Warmoth build, but I do love the B string on that Dingwall.

  15. Trick question, I'd grab my 12 gauge and politely ask whoever is forcing this scenario to get the eff off my lawn.

    I’d start a tuner business :)

    I’d be fine with a P, and a nice medium powered combo w/12” speaker... don’t use pedals atm, but envelope filters are always fun :)

    But I’d probably choose the most flexible thing of each: a five string with soapbars (I can swap pickups as much as I want, no?), a powerful clean head with a couple different cabs, and the bestest multi fx unit :bassist:

    I gig with this situation most of the time, so it's pretty easy.
