Finally getting it together...
« on: Time Format »

Hey Gang,

     I've owned the MB-1 preamp for a number of years now, as many of you are aware of, but today, I just pulled the trigger on the rest of the bass rig.

    I found a B500B on ebay for $276.00 USD, and the matching Bassline HX cabs to go with it. The 2x10 cab is $255.00, and the 1x15 cab is $212.00, so I pulled the trigger on both of those too.

    I feel like I got a good deal on all the missing elements for my bass rig, and now that's resolved. All I need now is a decent 5-String bass to run through it, and we'll see how many windows I can rattle with it :lol:

Hey Harley, excellent  :thumb-up: , that will be an awesome rig, one of the best 5 string deals we found when looking for basses a while ago are the Indonesian Music Man Subs (that's if you want long scale, finding a decent short scale 5 string will be harder I suspect).  The Sub 5 string looks better than the 4 string but above all set up really well (I was pleasantly surprised when I set it up for our bass player) and they sound quite good also.  Here's my initial posts about it (http://adadepot.com/index.php?topic=326.30).

Hey Richard,
   I was actually looking at a Sterling Ray 5, which is about half the price of a MusicMan Stingray, but I was also looking at those SUB basses too. Also, another consideration is the Traben Array Attack 5.

    I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

    MJMP, I think I might crumble the cinder blocks in the foundation :lol:

Hey Harley, the Traben Array Attack 5 looks like a very nice option and a good price point.

I agree Richard,

     They have some interesting appointments, and I'm thinking of the ones with the Rockfield pickups. I've been seeing them on ebay occasionally, used, and they are going for about the same price as the new SUB basses.
     It all comes down to this: I don't need anything really flashy, just good enough to record with and get a decent tone. Of course, flexibility doesn't hurt either.
