Your Ultimate Rig (with sort of a twist)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by freshmeat1989, Aug 20, 2004.


  1. Alright, post pictures of your ultimate amp rig, tell what it is also. You can do cost if you want. I'll start...

    EDIT: This is an amp forum, so show pics of the amps you want, not the basses.

    I would want to use a Warwick Corvette or Fender AmDeluxe Jazz FMT through this[​IMG] or this [​IMG] or this [​IMG] or this [​IMG] and this [​IMG] out to this [​IMG] and this [​IMG] or this [​IMG] and this [​IMG] or two of these [​IMG]

    That would be a SVT 5Pro or Eden WT550 or a Trace Elliot V-Type Preamp/BBE BMax-T Preamp coupled with a QSC PLX1602 out to a Bergantino NV610 and NV215 or an Eden D-210XLT and D-215XLT or two Yorkville XC808's. Oh, man, tube sound goodness. I love those TE V-Type Pre's!

    My dream rig would be:
    Ampeg SVTCL Head (Anniversary Edition)
    Ampeg 8x10 Cab (Anniversary Edition)
    Ernie Ball Stingray 4 string (Black sparkle, black pickguard, maple fretboard.)

    Pretty simple, but to me, that would be awesome to own.

    *Edit* I forgot to mention one thing..a wireless. I've already got my dream wireless- Audio Technica 601G. I love this thing, and it only cost me $60 including shipping on eBay :cool: . The guy had it for 2 months and quit his band.

    I would have to go with a Mod Q5 or a Custom 5 with a Koa body and Wendge neck with an Ebony f-board. A SWR Bass 750 and SWR 750 Power amp. I really like the TC Electronics Triple C compressor and a Korg DTR1 tuner. I would probably go with all Monster 1000 series cables w/90 degree ends. I like them best. Then on to the speakers. 2 - SWR Goiliath 4x10's on top of 4 Big Ben 18's. Plus 4 Goliath Jr's for the 2 drummers in my band.
    I think that should about do it.

    My Ultimate Rig tends to vary from gig to gig. But, counting what I have tucked away in my basement, and what is on its way to me, I have the following to choose from:

    Amps:
    Rack Rig (Raven Labs MDB-1, Shure ULXS, Eden Navigator, QSC PLX 3002)
    EA iAMP 800
    Mesa Boogie Walkabout
    Walter Woods Ultra High Power

    Cabs:
    Accugroove Whappo, Jr. (w/ neo drivers)
    Accugroove Tri 210L
    EA VL-210 (2)
    EA VL-208 (3)
    EA VL-110 (3)
    EA CxL-112
    EA Wizzy WZ-112E
    Epifani T-112 (2)
    Epifani T-110UL (2)
    ACME Low-B2, Series II
    Hevos Midget
    Raezer's Edge Bass 10
    Dr. Bass custom 2x10 (neo drivers)
    Dr. Bass custom 1x15 (neo driver)
    Mesa Boogie Diesel 4x10 "Deep"
    Mesa Boogie Diesel Powerhouse, Jr.

    With all of these options, I can tailer a rig to fit the room, the size of the crowd, the relative volume of the other musicians (I play in several bands), the instruments I will be playing, and not the least, the vehicle I will be using to get to and from the gig. :p

    Ditto!

    Did you try those at The Perfect Bass? I just got my Soul Top from James and nothing I've played touches it. I don't even jones for a Woods any more, it's that good!

    By the way, this was my second dealing with The Perfect Bass. James is a class act! You won't find better service.

    Congrats on the Glock!!

    Yep!! That's exactly where I played it.. May have been the one you got.. Those things are sweet!

    I've talked to James a few times, and been by his shop.. He's a great guy to deal with.. I can't recommend him enough. Great guy, and he's got great prices on some VERY nice gear.

    I'd like to revamp my previous statement..........

    James is a very bad man! He's trying to talk me into a Glockenklang cabinet to go with my Soul Top. Why does he feel the need to plant seeds in fertile ground, oh why???? :crying:

    I got my Roscoe from him as well. He gave me a killin deal and an amazing instrument.

    When I played through it, I played that head hooked to a Quattro cabinet and a Duo 210 cabinet..

    Monster Tone!!

    James and Gard are both BAD BAD men! They like to flaunt high end bass gear in front of GAS infested bassist. :help: :D

    My Ultimate Rig is mostly what I got now.

    Yamaha PB-1
    Crown CE1000
    Schroeder 1210

    I want to add a few effects to the mix... I've always stayed clear of them... but I'm GASing for a few effects. I'm going to add a 1212 and get a big amp down the road... maybe (if it's to my liking) get the new Fender Pre...

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I need to get some real shots of my rig soon!
     
  19. good call on the 8*10 (+roadie). whats the pre amp in the rack with the SVT pre on the right?

    I was polishing up the Visa card getting ready to buy a pair of Acme B4s to use with my Pearce BC-1 (or AMP SL-1) and a QSC PLX2402.

    After pitting my Avatar B210/Bartoogie 1x15 (EV TL606 cab loaded with an EVM 15) against a pair of Acme B2s, I decided that I'm pretty darn happy with my existing cabinets.

    Last weekend I bought a used Hartke HA5000, so I'm presently biamping the B210/1x15 and it sounds great (I have another B210/1x15 stack if I need four cabinets). It's simple, toneful and quite loud considering "only" 170 watts per cabinet.

    Of course, my rig is subject to change on a whim! :D
