My set up is simple - a very old Musicman Stringray and a nearly as old Gallien-Krueger 200MB. After all these years I still think that they're great. Sometimes I'd love a big Bass system (the GK has a 1x12" and only weighs something over 25lbs) but then I think of the transport issues and I decide to stick with what I've got!
I currently have a Warwick Thumb BO 5, and I love it and it goes through a SWR 1x10 for practice at home, but at church it goes through a Ashdown ABM 300 to a Ashdown 4x10. I will be adding another bass soon...hopefully a sadowsky :)
I have a Status empathy it's and English bass, A Carvin AC50f. Both are 5 string the status is a solid body. The carvin is a semi acoustic. I use SWR amps sm-500 and sm-900 both are pre-fender. The cabs. I use are swr and aguilar. The swr is one of the first swr made it has a great sound. 4X10 The aguilar is a new or newer 1X12 with horn. The horn in the swr is turned off. This is what I use on stage. I only use one amp at a time unless we are playing a big show then everything comes out. I use a visual volume pedal that allows me to use both basses with out unplugging and replugging. I'm a gear pig so there is more but you get the idea. Blessings Doug
A very simple Fender standard jazz bass, 4 string. Did a little "artistic" touching to the pick guard painting in the Dutch flag and in orange lettering "Dutch Mafia" in the white between the strings. I wanna find a place to get it professionaly done, but it'll do for now.
I just recently purchased an Ibanez SR506 and I LOVE IT! I run it thru a Fender Bassman 150. It does what I need for now. Great for practice and with an XLR on the front panel, it is great for live as well. BTW....I also use Monster Cables.
