SteveC Posted January 21, 2003 Share Posted January 21, 2003 Ok, all the talk of "new rigs" and "finally got it" has given me a bad case of G.A.S. I am looking for some words of wisdom from all of you. I play in 2 groups. The first one is a jazz quartet that covers Yellowjackets, Spyro Gyra, etc. We play mostly small rooms and don't use a PA. We will use one for the occasional gig to beef up the sax and a little keys. The other is a 10 piece funk/soul band with 5 horns, Leslie, etc. We cover Tower of Power, EW&F, Wilson Picket, etc. We use a small PA for small rooms for vocals. Otherwise, it's a full blown set up with about 22 channels and I go DI. My basses are a pair of Modulus Q5's - one fretted one frettless - both with Bart pups and Bart 3 band preamp. I have an SWR WM10 and an SWR 2X10 cab. I currently use a WM10 by itself for rehearsal (it does keep, up believe it or not) and add the 2X10 for gigs to make a 3X10, 100 watt mini-stack. It really sounds pretty good, and is very portable, but I am wondering if I am missing out. I have been kicking around the idea of getting a 2 space rack bag with a preamp and a single space power amp and useing my 2X10 cab. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I realize it that tone, amps, cabs, etc. are very personal taste-type issues, but what the heck. I'm not made of money, but have never let that stop me. Names like Kern and Stewart have crossed my mind. If you made it through this long post, congratulations. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
