I pulled all the junk out last night to check batteries and I think I may have to have someone help me drag them all out next time.....
you all think there are enough basses in the house finally?

NOPE.....

what you see is:
2 model 4's
2 model 3's
4 model 2's ( two leftys )
1 model 1's ( but one is in pieces in a bag under my bed )
2 Kramer Aerostars
1 Hybrid ( Charvel 575 body and Kramer maple FB neck )
JPB7
TBX
Concert5
Series10 Eclipse
Starfire Warrior copy

logic would clearly dictate that WTF do I need any more for....
my friends said I should sell off everything except 2-3 because that's pretty much all I play out anymore.

and best answer is "I dunno, they look pretty, who cares if I play them or not".

actually the lighting in that shot was good. It shows the real color of the pink one and the blue one to a "t"

so ya, I got rid of a few and found a few, so the numbers kinda stay the same, just the models change.
the ones they tell me to keep are the tbird/5string, the 2 leftys, and dump the rest because you can find them weekly on ebay... I will, but not today.

and another surprise is that Randall guitar amp. I actually like the sound it produces using my "whatever" cabinets. I would experiment and bring it to a gig, but I don't think it would get loud enough so I'm gonna bring it to practice to compete with the drummer and see what happens.

hell for 100 bucks I couldn't say no since the thing works 100%.

The dual channel reminds me of when I used my Mesa Triple-Rec 2 channel amp and a 4x12 for a long time waiting for my Mesa 400+ to arrive. You would have laughed at me, as people asked "where's your bass amp and cabs", I would always say "right there" and pointed to the Triple-Rec and the 4x12 and 2x15....

obviously you know by now I'll try anything bizzare, just like you folks who use 2 amps for your clean/distorted....

i been having instances with certian cauldrons of effects that the dual channel rig reall rumbles the grundle with distortion on both channels. i drive the boss distortion in the processor with mostly mid signal to the 2X15 cab and the EHX Pi all highs and lows and boom! funn stuff.

i still want that limited run jackson bass mike.

All I can say is that my two-channel clean/distortion thing is working really well with our original material. It has taken the tracks that Andy and Doug originally laid down several years ago, and made them much more huge than either of them anticipated. Wink

ok it is still August, so here's the next "unexpected piece of new gear"

I killed one of my SHS2500 amps at a gig about a month ago from hooking it up wrong being 1/2 drunk before we got on stage. man that sucked I had to play thru the PA only and only hear myself coming from a 12" wedge..oh well the circuitboard had a nice burn mark when I looked a couple days later. I was down to only my other one so -- I replaced it with an old mackie 1400i from one of our friends who runs sound here in the city and it CRANKS - around 175 used on ebay and I'm gonna look for another one for another application. Nobody wants these fine old amps anymore because everybody wants 1000 watts in 20lbs, not ..hehe 36lbs like this one weighs.

so the rack got a facelift of sorts:


still the same signal chain -- bass to tuner to mixer-eq/gainiac to separate mixer channels for blending into l/r or mono.
