    What I’d tell the government I’d have: Mesa Buster 15 combo, Verellen Meatsmoke preamp pedal, Rickenbacker 4004Ci.

    What I’d actually have: the above, the rest of my gear, and enough firepower to make “bass compliance inspector” a short-lived job for anyone dumb enough to look closely.

  2. OK, they found me... so, of what I have, I keep:

    - Fender P with SD Quarter Pounders
    - GK 400RB (series 1)
    - Avatar B210 cab
    - Behringer BDI21 pedal/DI

    I'm sorry, but I lost all my bass gear in a tragic boating accident.

    This works out to be my current rig for the most part. However, thepedal situation is tricky. Narrowing three boards down to a single pedal is quite the task.

    Bass: Gibson Grabber

    Amp: Science Mother 200w

    Cab: science 6x10

    Pedal: HX Stomp if multieffects are allowed,

    I'll keep my 98 Warwick Streamer LX, my Markbass LM II limited (because it's newer) and my Ampeg AV 212, since it's as portable as a large combo but as loud as a decent stack.

    Next, I'll weasel my way into a cushy job with the Department Of Bass Security, where I'll have access to all the confiscated gear! Mwah ha ha!

    Ibanez BTB 6-string
    GK MB212-ii 2x12 combo
    Line6 Helix Floor

    That's basically my setup now, except I'm using a HX Stomp. I'd upgrade to the full Helix if I had to ensure I'd stick with that one "pedal".

    I am not attached to any of my pedals enough to pick one, so an awesome pedal I don't own yet maybe an MBD-1 or a Volt Thrower
