This has been my amp/cab setup since 2011, and it's muchos powerful. More than I need for the gigs we play, but it's always nice to feel yourself vibrating across the stage, no matter how small. ;)

Pictured here with my bitsa Precision, and pear cider. All that's missing is my pedalboard. Must get a full rig picture soon!



:D

Cheers! It's been doing the job for the past 3 years and it's never let me down, so I honeslty can't see it going anywhere any time soon. Just want a couple of BC212s to go underneath it and I'm set. ;)

Looks great, but isn't the Marshallisation like putting Nissan badges on a Jag?

Shame on me, I know... the Zillas' are great in their own right. But it was just crying out to be ahem, 'complete'.

Liking my current cabs VERY much, surprisingly more than the B/F S12V I used for 18 months. Shame the Carvin overhangs a bit :rolleyes:

Would it overhang if you turned it sideways? Just an idea. Probably a rubbish one.

[attachment=176053:Bass Set Up.jpg]

It was raining on Saturday so what better than to get everything out, set it up in the front room, photograph it and then play around with Photoshop for a couple of hours! By the way, I make no claims to be a decent photographer.

The Precison is a 76, and the Jazz is an early 90s USA 62 Reissue. I've changed the control plate to a standard configuration, but it's a complete control plate switch and only a matter of soldering a couple of wires to put the stack knobs back. I did this to cure me of some serious GAS hankering after a new USA Standard Jazz (Olympic white for me!) and doing this cost me £50 instead of £1100 - which I don't have. It's working so far. I can't decide which way is better, but the standard configuration is more attractive to my eye, so it'll stay for a bit.

I bought the Squier CV 50s Precision recently off Gary Mac as a gigging back up, and love it - one sound (Seymour Duncan antique pup), but a great one, and fantastic for the price.

As to the TC Electronic rig, it's good. I usually take the 2 x 12 out for pub rock 'n' roll gigs, and the 2 x 10 for barn dance gigs. Both together are pretty loud. My sound of choice is Trace Elliot, and always will be - I used them for years, but I'm 60 next year, and the thought of lugging 80lb+ of amp up a frosty front path at 1.00 am on a February morning seems to me like asking for trouble, so I've compromised with lighter stuff. It's not the same, but it's perfectly OK.

With the Classic 450, I'm still working out the best way to set up the controls. At the moment I'm backing off the gain to a little further below the peak. I don't use the compressor or tubetone, which is not 'my' sound. Hi-mid is also set lower than the others, but that probably relates to my bass more than anything.

Cheers, Paul

I love the fact you use your own designed and built gear. Must check out your amp thread over on TB :)
