My new rig that I'm saving for...
 
Ok, getting my job back next week and I'm going to be saving like a bastard for my new set up..here it goes...

Spector Euro 4
Ampeg SVT2 Pro(All tube my whores)
Ampeg 810E Cab

I realize this will take a little time to save up for....but in about 6 months or less I will have this...what do you guys think?

Tattered 2005-11-29 17:07

Thats pretty cool, pretty much what i might be getting, but do you really need the 810 cab? if you dont, your just lugging it around, and might be a bitch transporting, but if your playing big ass venues then fairplay.

hahaha, no I don't at all..but basically I want something that will last awhile, and I want to start a melodic death/thrash/jazz soon..so I'm preparing for anything of what may come.

I want the 810 because it's a wall of sound. :love: lol...I'm going from a Microbass to this setup...go big or go home.

I'm thinking a 410 cab and a 115 cab will sound just as great and provide a little more versatility. If your playing a small 50-60 person venue, you don't need an 810.

BassBehemoth 2005-11-29 20:33

I obviously don't need it, it's definitely more of a want than a need.

McCalister999 2005-11-29 22:32

need? posh!

Stachio 2005-12-01 10:56

All tube head = 70 lbs
Ampeg 810 = 165 lbs
I would really look into the option mentioned above with the 410 +115 (although the Ampeg 115 never really left me speechless), or 2 410s, or 410 + 210 (most versatile combo IMO). Hell, my Eden 410 is enough for all of the rooms I've played in (granted I'm not filling up arenas, but then I would have roadies and sponsorships for gear). Remember also, that onstage you'll likely be getting PA support so you don't really need a huge rig.
Either way, the Ampeg + Spector is a proven combo. Good choice!

Thanks for the tips, I guess I'll have to see when I get the money, it depends how desperate I am, rather to wait and keep saving..and having a 20watt practise amp makes me VERY IMPATIENT. :D

MikeSilence 2006-01-21 00:34

dont really agree with the bass or the head but the cab is good i have that cab and it amazing. the head i would recomend is the Gallian Krueger 2001rb thats wha ti have and its amazing. and as far as a bass i would recomend the Warwick infinaty sn thats the bass im getting that thing is a beauty

BassBehemoth 2006-01-21 10:44

Hmm interesting suggestion...but they do not sell that brand where I live. :(

((Nervous)) Texx 2006-01-23 16:28

tell ya what, in the music shop i go to they had an svt4 pro (all tube preamp +beaslty 1200 w power section) plugged into the 8x10...ohh god it was like instant splooge. i played a warwick thumb 6 string throuhg it and i played all my primus material and it was like heaven. that amp was so versitile i loved it!!! right now i have an ampeg b2r and a swr workingman 4x10 (because i have very small income for this stuff) and the svt was so sexy sounding.

BassBehemoth 2006-01-23 17:52

SVT = Sex Video Tapes...

I guess MusicStop in Halifax had the dark blue Euro I wanted..for $1199cdn... :eek:

I'm putting this on hold though, buying a new computer next week or so.(would have been sooner but I'm a gambler..)

ahumansdystopia 2006-01-23 21:57

Sweet shit man, thats like....the perfect combination :D Spector and Ampeg fucking OWN! especially when used together :beer:

Requiem 2006-02-03 19:07

Tattered 2006-02-03 19:11

Im saving for a SWR or Epifani rig, im nearly there, and then im going to see what the tone is like on both of them, its going to be a hard choice..

I've never heard of Epifani....and theres something I don't like about SWR, they are well built and all...but I find they don't have much tonal range....but thats just me, I'm an Ampeg fucker....just like 80% of bass players lol, I guess I just like tubes better.

Kovok 2006-02-08 23:33

I am just starting my bass playing career and plan to buy an Ibanez which seems to be really popular around here. Not sure which model yet, any suggestions for a beginner/noob?

Tulvox 2006-02-08 23:37

Traben.

Kovok 2006-02-08 23:49

I must admit, Trabens do look rather sleek and sexy.
