Simple question: how many amps do you own?

I have my Behringer head, and a Peavey combo.

Looking to buy either an Orange Bass Terror 1000W, or a GK MBF800. Or possibly both, at some point smile

[edit] I sold all my speakers and bought a Barefaced SuperTwin. Could not be happier!

My first rig: Fender Dual Showman head and Sunn 2x15 Reflex cabinet - still got 'em.

My 2nd rig: Trace Elliot head and TE 4x10 cabinet - still got 'em.

3rd rig: MarkBass LM-II and MB 1x15 cab - current rig

Small venue rig: Fender Sidekick (70w) for acoustic/small venues/cocktail gigs

Guitar/vocal rig: Bose LM-1 (stick) with one subwoofer. Used to put a three-vocal, 2 acoustic guitar group thru it. Still comes in handy for an Irish rebel-band I'm in that plays around St. Patrick's Day (acoustic guitar gig). Bar-space is tight on that day and we're usually pinned in a corner, so this helps out with space considerations.


Play. Just play.

Genz Benz Shuttle 3.0-10T Combo with Shuttle 10T Extension Cab. 175 watts alone and 300 with the extension. All the amp I need for "wallpaper" gigs. Most of my playing these days is via my IEM board. Boss TU-2 into a Radial JDI and IEM via a Rolls box.

I am debating a REDDI DI as they are supposed to be "the shiznit" for IEM's.

My bass rigs come in three sizes: Wee, Not So Wee, And FRIGGIN' HUGE.

Wee: Phil Jones Bass Briefcase
Not So Wee: Phil Jones Bass Six Pack; Fender Bassman Ten (Silverface)
Friggin Huge: Carvin Redline 1000 Head (sometimes used as just the pre, and paired with a Carvin 1900 watt power amp), Genz Benz 2x10, Carvin 1x15

Often, the Six Pack is paired with the Genz Benz cab.

I have three rigs.

Two rigs -- each a Hartke HA3500 head and Hartke 410TP (4x10) cab -- are such that (a) one rig serves as an identical backup to the other, (b) one head plus two cabs equals a big rig, and (c) I can run both rigs in stereo.

In retrospect I'd be better off trading a 4x10 for a 2x10. (I never run stereo live anyway.) The big venues always have FoH so I don't really need anything more than a 4x10 and what I'm really lacking is a small rig for small rooms.

I did borrow a small Yorkville 1x15 combo for a while that was very convenient -- one-trip load in/out -- but it was a tad underpowered and I still like the idea of a modular approach where I can mix and match.

My other rig is a PA: Mackie ProFX12 board, Peavey PV23XO crossover, Crown XLS202 and XLS602 power amps, two Peavey PV12M floor monitors and a Peavey PV118 sub (I currently borrow mains). Typically it's configured for 2x200W @ 8ohm for mains (stereo), 600W @ 4ohm for monitors and 380W @ 8ohm for the sub. This is plenty loud enough for the venues we play. (I can get more power to the sub -- up to 1200W -- by bridging and running the mains in mono.)

I can connect my bass DI to the board without worry.

In retrospect I bought the wrong floor monitors. I need 1x15s to run all the instruments through them. With only vocals in the monitors we're not getting a good stage mix. Also, I need a board that can handle (ideally) four different monitor mixes, one for each band member.

In theory I don't need a 4x10 anymore because I could use the 1x18 sub instead, but the sub is bulkier and weighs almost ten pounds more.

Also, I could get rid of the HA3500s and use a Crown instead if I got a bass preamp.

In summary I'm trying to be practical and have enough gear to have a rig for every type of venue I might play, with just enough redundancy for backup.

One combo and I almost never use it. I either just run direct or through my SansAmp bass driver DI (the 3-channel one).

At home I practice through my QSC K10 direct.

That's a great amp -- I had one briefly with a Hartke 4.5XL cab.

A little more than two.

The set up i'm most likely to take out is -

markbass f1
markbass new york 1-12

This I use as an extension cab as required. Or will leave it if I'm rehearsing in the same place for a while so I can just schlep the f1 back and forth.

markbass traveler 1-12

This cab is nice enough but heavy. Especially comparing to the markbass stuff. Really just never got around to selling it.

swr basic black 1-15

Had this combo since college in the 90's. Rarely use it though it still works OK. Just can't seem to part with it.

I'm strictly an at home player these days with very little time for even that. I want something better but I have a hard time justifying anything.

Most of the time it's a SWR Workingman's 10. I think I've had it about 12 years. I don't really love it.

I have an Ampeg B-25 head, there's not much info to find on it. It's from about 1971 rated at 55 watts but seems like a lot more as it was originally paired with a 2-15" cabinet, which I don't have. It has a whole bunch of tubes and weighs a ton. I usually plug it into my the 10" cabinet of my 1992 Carvin PB150 combo who's head went south a few years back. Thinking back, the Carvin combo was really sweet for the size/power/price.

For the rare skinny string debockle, I have a 20 year old Crate 15 watt combo, which stinks, and a battery powered Denelectro Honeytone mini amp.


It's all quite sad actually.

ACME Low B2 X 2

Shuttle 6.0 with one ACME for small gigs (600 watts)

ShuttleMax 12.0 with two ACME's for bigger gigs (600 watts per cab)

(Rack) Demeter VTBP201, QSC 1802 amp with two ACME's for bigger outdoor gigs (800 watts per cab)

I can't always depend on FOH support, but I can always turn down... maybe...sorta...

Currently I have three bass amps and a single cabinet. I also have a guitar combo amp. My amplification situation has changed somewhat over the past couple of years. That's due to a couple of factors. Part of it has been an effort to clear out some older gear and streamline or modernize what I have.

BASS HEADS

EDEN WT-500
I bought this head new back in the late 1990's. And it took over as my main amp from an older SWR SM-400 head. The WT-500 was my go-to amp for gigs and studio work from the late 90's up through the late 2000's. It's a hybrid head that features a tube preamp and a solid state power amp.

For a while I used this head in conjunction with two cabinets: an SWR Triad (1x15", 1x10" and a tweeter) and an Eden D-210XLT. I sold off the Triad along with the SM-400 about 7 years ago. And I just recently sold the Eden D-210XLT. They were both great cabinets, and that combined rig of the WT-500 head, the Triad cab and the Eden D-210XLT sounded awesome! But it was a bear to load into clubs for a set that was only 45 minutes long.

Now that I've sold both cabs I'm also in the process of trying to sell the Eden WT-500. Why? Simply put, I just don't use it that much anymore. And my other two amp heads can handle my gigging and recording needs pretty well. If anyone is interested feel free to drop me a line.


EDEN WTX-500
I've had this amp for close to 5 years now. And I got it because I wanted to get a head that was small and light to go along with my EBS Neo-112 speaker cabinet. This Eden head is small and light enough that I put it in a messenger bag along with my cables and sheet music.

Sonically? This head is a little powerhouse. Running at 4 ohms it will put out 500 watts. I've used it with house speaker cabinets where some backlines are provided. Or I use it in conjunction with the EBS 1x12" cabinet. The EQ on this head is pretty powerful, and I can dial in a really wide range of tones. It's sounded great on stage and I've also recorded with this head.

I'm toying with the idea of adding a second 1x12" cabinet to this general concept of a rig. My gigs really don't require a huge amp setup, and running a pair of 1x12" cabinets might be just what the doctor ordered.


AMPEG PF-500
The PF-500 head really serves me more as a change of pace sort of amp. It's got a more old school tonal palette than the Eden WTX-500. That's due to a significantly different EQ section design. It's a bit larger than the Eden, and weighs in at 11 pounds. It's still a good deal more portable than your 80's or 90's era solid state heads that would weigh in 30+ pounds and need to be rack mounted.

I've also recorded and gigged with this particular head. It captures some of that old school Ampeg vibe thanks to the preamp design. But it's really not a substitute for a tube amp.

Ultimately, I have some mixed feelings about this head. I've had a very positive experience with this particular amp. But I've seen some users at TalkBass who had bad experiences with this model. And I also tried out another amp head that I think could probably do what both the Ampeg PF-500 can do and what the Eden WTX-500 does: the Aguilar TH-500. So I may end up selling the Ampeg and getting an Aguilar at some point down the road.


BASS CABINETS
EBS NEO-112
Right now, this is the only bass cab that I own. Like I mentioned earlier in the post, I'm not really gigging these days. I jam from time to time, but I've been on a sabbatical from gigging since the Fall of 2012. So I pared down on the gear.

As for this cabinet? It really became my go-to cabinet for a number of reasons. But mostly? It sounds great. I had a chance to try this cab out and compare it with some other 1x12" cabs. I felt that this cab colored my tone less than some other cabinets did. And I was shocked at just how much sound came out of such a small cabinet. But that single driver, a port and a tweeter make this cabinet a serious contender on stage at a club gig.

Then there's the neodymium factor. I could not believe that a cabinet that put out this much sound would come in a such a small package. And the neodymium speaker helps lighten the load tremendously. My cabinet weighs 28 pounds, and I can walk into a club gig in ONE TRIP! With a bass in a gig bag on my back, my amp head in a messenger bag with my cables and tuner and this cabinet I was ready to go. Compare that with my 2x10 cabinet which weighed in around 65 pounds, and guess which cab came out to most of my gigs? Yup. The 2x10" stayed home. A LOT.

I would seriously love to add another NEO-112 to my rig. Two cabinets combined makes for a very nice and full sound. Unfortunately EBS speakers and amps aren't widely distributed here in the United States. Their effects units seem to sell much more here. Plus, the cabinets don't seem to sell very often on the secondary market. It's left me wondering what kind of sound am I going to get if I add a different neodymium equipped 1x12" cabinet to the mix. Again, I'm looking to Aguilar if I need to make a change. I've played through some Aguilar gear that's been very promising.


GUITAR AMPS
Vox Pathfinder
This is my one and only guitar amp. It's actually a pretty cool little combo for noodling, practicing, writing or demoing. It's got a single 8" speaker, reverb and vibrato. It's fun. If I wanted a real guitar amp? This wouldn't be it. That would probably be a Fender Princeton Reverb or Deluxe Reverb. But I'm not a good enough guitar player for either of those amps.

In spite of being a MI dealer, I used the same two amps for almost ten years, a current Acoustic Image Contra or Coda, and a pair of Euphonic Audio VL208 3-way 2x8s driven by their iAMP800, though I also used a tiny EA Doubler and pair of ultralight Wizzy 10. The weight of the EA VL208 cabs made me move to the current stuff:

Pair of Euphonic Audio NL210-III at a mere 34lbs., high efficiency, true low bass extension for real 30hz. low B, clean and uncolored. As a dealer I got them custom made with a vintage white tolex, and I removed the grilles and painted them a rich speckled brown. That and a Fenderish custom Euphonic Audio logo I designed, and they make a visual impact, too.

Genz Benz Streamliner 900, love the availability of rich tubey tone with gobs of clean power, compact and light. Wonderful, sad GB was swallowed by Fender.

Acoustic Image Clarus head, clean, two channels, great for doubling or just URB. I also carry it to every gig, as a backup for any instrument or the PA mixer or power amp in an emergency. If I was gigging URB more I'd have a Contra cab, too.

Fender Rumble 2x8, a pair. These underrated cabs, now discontinued, are really very good, nice real depth, clean and real, and tiny and around 27lbs due to neo drivers I can load in without a sweat. I use one with my Clarus for a great URB sound, or the Streamliner with bass guitar for small gig.

Genz Benz ShuttleMax 9.2 has more knobs than the Space Shuttle, and more flexibility than most need. Got it cheap as a dealer, and only because EA has still not come out with a new iAMP, whose semi-parametric section I miss. A tweaker's delight, also with gobs of power in a not so large but incredibly light package.

For gigging:
Genz shuttle 6.2 and Carvin BX500
Pair of Avatar B210neos (8ohms ea) and a GK MBE212 cab (4ohm).
There are a lot of combinations I could go with but the Genz usually goes with the GK cab and the Carvin with the Avs. Unless its an outside gig then the Carvin always goes.

For rehearsal:
My old Peavey TNT 115 combo is a permanent fixture there.

For practice at home:
Ampeg BA108, what a wonderful little box that is.

All I have is a Yamaha BBT 500H head with a Yamaha BBT 210 speaker.
I also have an old Yamaha G50 112II for guitar.
And no, I am not a Yamaha endorser.

One SWR Workingmans 15 combo, which resides at my bandmate's house where we rehearse, and is used for acoustic gigs.

One SWR 210C, which resides at my house and is used for practice and full band gigs.

One Fender 15-watt that I use only occasionally for practicing, or when I get together with my guitarist for an informal rehearsal.

There is much I don't know about amps, but these SWRs work well and I think they sound decent. The 210C can move some serious air if needed. I've never turned it up more than half way for a gig.

Me too, with the same SansAmp. Love that thing.

I have my old Genz-Benz GBE400 head and Avatar B112 cab, but right now they are gathering dust. If I play at home I'm usually recording directly into a Focusrite interface through my Studio Projects VTB1 preamp (surprisingly very sweet tone for bass) or the SansAmp.

I did have a little Acoustic B15 combo, but I gave that to a friend at church who is learning bass.

Reading through the thread, I'm amazed at how many of us own Genz-Benz. Seems to have been a popular brand, and along with Bob I'm lamenting Fender's decision.

Only guitar amp I own is a Hughes & Kettner Edition Blue (60 watt solid state). Nice little amp.

lots of really cool gear on these lists, and some that i really wanted to acquire back in the day (i'm looking at you, acme low B2). the bass player in a friend's band just upgraded from an SWR workingman's 15 combo to a mark bass head and 210/115 stack. it did not sound bad. i was never a fan of the WM115 combo.

i'm also quite proud of mine.

preamp:
warwick quadruplet

power amps:
crown XLS2500 drivecore
crest pro7200
crown K2

head:
ampeg V4 (mid-70s)

cabinets:
bergantino HT-112 chrome grille
bergantino EX-112 chrome grille
carvin 115 (mid-80s)

combo:
early early version of peavey max158

guitar combo:
peavey classic 50 212 combo

Amps:
(1) Warwick Quad preamp (just like rumple's!) + Peavey DPC-1400X 1U power amp
(2) GenzBenz Shuttle 9.0

Speakers:
(1) Bag End s15-d (1x15, no hf)
(2) Bag End d10x-d (2x10 w/ coax hf)

I would like to trade out the Bag End 2x10 for a Bag End s15x-d (1x15 w/ coax hf). I might also prefer a GK 500mb head to the current GB, but that's really low priority. I've borrowed a that GK head before and liked it paired with the Bag End.

Peace.

Doh! My amp is actually a WT-550.

that 210 sounded really sweet, but you're speaking my language with a 115+coax.
