Show us your rig!

Recommended Posts

You're welcome! The TRB is super pretty by the way. I used to have two TRB5's, sold them both. I still want to get one back eventually but I have no idea what I would use them for :)

Nothing like being a tart. Planning on using all of this on Friday night, because why not?

My main live rig is the GB 900 with a GB 8812 cab (a 12, 2 x 8s and a horn) - and I like it.
But I wanted a smaller more 'hi-fi' option for 'unplugged' / lower levels, and fretless mainly.
Looked at BareFaced a while and I know they are much loved, but just got a PJB 6b Neo.
Wow, this is good. Happy now.
I have a smaller head coming for the PJB but even before it arrives I think it was a mistake - the 900 sounds so good all-flat, and I can turn it down. The PJB is rated 300 @6 Ohm, I'll prob never show it more than around a hundred anyway.

Eclectic electric...

9 years ago I took up bass.  My first kit was a borrowed Squier P bass into a knackered amp with a bad hum and a speaker (I wot not size).  Nice bass rubbish amp.  40+ basses later and probably 5 rigs....

...and we're a Vintage unlined fretless 940FL with two amps and two cabs.  Basic kit is Markbass LM2 and 112 Traveller. The Ashdown 15 and MAG 300 are my reserve and for when I want faux upright (although the MB will do that too)

I'm more impressed than I thought I'd be with Ashdown. Their service is super cool, and value for money commendable (head for 150 and cab for 50, 2nd hand).  But MB for me is spot on and in another league for what I want.

That was a bargain lownote, ☝️ I also have the Ashdown mag head , and the 115 deep cab (on the right) and the markbass ny 115 , which I mix n match, even the mags compressor isn’t bad.

My current rig is an all Hartke affair, LH1000 with spare LH500 in the rack case for quick change if the worst happens again, coupled with a 2x10 and a 1x15 Hydrive cabs it does the job.

New year, new rig 😎

I have been looking at getting an old Trace head for a while and this beauty came up for sale here along with the EBS cab. Huge sound and huge smiles all round, though probably not from the neighbours. It sounds epic using a Precision with flats, just so much punch! Love it.

I wish one of those turned up as a hired backline for one of my gigs. :-)

Somebody else paid for that, moved it and let someone else play through it. The spirit of Christmas is alive and well.

Nice amp! Always wanted to get my hands on a TE amp but they are pretty rare where I am in Canda. I barely ever see them.

I would sincerely love to hear this rig in action. I've owned a couple of small PJB combos and they sounded incredible.

I've not really had a chance to fire it up properly as we've not had a practice since before Xmas, but just from home use it is definitely a formidable rig. The Mesa is concise and clear and all sorts of ferociously loud and the PJB cabs provide a very articulate outlet for all that Mesa power. Can't fault it as yet!
