  4. On Sundays, this G-K MB[SUP]2[/SUP]-500 into a Yamaha 1X15 (the church's) and a B52 1X15 (mine):
    The G-K sitting on top of the Yamaha speaker

    When visiting other venues, the Warwick $$ or the MTD Artist through the G-K into a 4 Ohm Carvin BRX10.2NEO speaker. The amp head fits completely into the Warwick's gig bag, BTW:

    Alternate: Bass of choice into a Kustom KBA65 with a Carvin BX500 in the effects loop. The sound is huge.

  6. Here be mine. Sadly though, getting stuck on 2nd shift has kinda killed my searching for a band.

    Old rig...

    Current rig...
    About half the weight, easier to transport, better tone, plenty of power. If I need more, a swap the 8ohm DB210 for a 4ohm DB410.

    I don't have any pictures of my current gigging rig, unfortunately. I used this configuration for practice and a small thing we played last weekend:

    Fender Jazz 70s Reissue (Audere JZ3 + DR Hi Beams; my absolute favorite bass right now)
    Carvin B1500
    Avatar B212 Neo

    Wow! I could not wipe the grin off of my face when I turned this setup on for practice in my garage. I didn't think that it would be enough (silly me ;) ) but it was a phenomenal performer. I didn't have to turn it up much at all and had some incredible tone. I still need to make some changes to the EQ; it was lacking some mids and highs. I love the deep, gut-busting impact but I need a touch of highs to complement that. My goodness! I absolutely love this head! I am confident that it could make any cab capable of handling the power sing.

    It was originally going to be an outdoor thing so I was planning on loading up my Peavey 115 cab to go along with this cab. When the rain came in the early morning I was told that we were moving indoors. I figured the 212 would be enough for the room, and it would have been. At the last moment I received word that we were setting up outside. I was worried that the solo cab wouldn't work very well outside but I didn't want to have to grab the Peavey. I was very impressed with how great the Carvin and Avatar 212 sounded together and worked together outdoors.

    For my next big gig I'll be using the same rig config but with the Peavey cab. I love the portability (if you could call it that; it's not that easy to move but it isn't as big of a PITA as it could be) that the single cab offers but I want the added height and visual impact of a full stack.

    I wish that my rackmount bass hanger would line up with the Carvin's mounting holes. I'll have to drill into the hanger's base if I ever hope to mount it. I have never drilled through metal before so I'll have to pick up a bit appropriate for the task.

    I'll definitely try to snap some photos during my next practice or sometime when I have it set up.

    My rehearsal rig is a 700rb-II with the SVT410-HLF in the picture, or a Traynor TS-115 loaded with an Eminence Kappa-15LFA...

    I love this rig.

    I don't use the Alesis compressor anymore. it still sits in the rack, though. I have a Punch Factory that sounds better to me.

    The thing under the rack is an Auralex Gramma. It normally goes under the cab.

    I have an LMII too, and it kicks ass. But I'm back on the tubes, so as good as the LMII is, it's a backup to this:




    but most of the time, it's this 69 SVT with an 810 from 73 (sorry, no pics of the cab):


    What do I like about them? DUH!!!

    What would I change? Nothing, though I wouldn't mind another V4B for those gigs where the SVT is too much but the B-15's aren't enough.
