Far and away the 'best' set up I have owned. Works well with all my Basses and for whatever reason let's all of my pedal board speak out better than I'm used to.

I will get a 'little' amp for small gigs, maybe an Aguilar or one of those Prometheans.

Mr Bass Man wrote:Well I sold the sonic bass above (wife wouldn't let me have 2 basses unfortunately) and after Christmas I bought a Fender Rumble 500 V3 2x10 Bass Combo. photos are just from the web

Hands down it is the best and lightest amp I've ever had.... only weighs 17kgs and the sound from the amp is amazing.
I was worried that being 2x10 it would be lacking in the bottom end but no this amp has plenty of bottom end
At the gig last weekend guitarist actually asked me to turn it down on stage!!! - I had to turn it down from volume 3 to 2.
I was going to get an extn cab to go with the amp, but I don't think I need to

had to sell my Ashdown EVO 900 III and my warwick 4x10, but this amp more than makes up for it.

I'm one happy chappy at the moment!
I'm glad the Rumble is working out for you after having what seemed like a long period of problems with your last rig.
How is the DI on the Rumble?

works like a charm..... at first is was buzzing and I went through that "oh no.... not again" thought but realised that you actually have to have the button out for the ground lift to work.... most other amps you have to push the button in - but once I figured that out no problems

I'm just amazed at the sound it produces from 2x10 speakers... I only have the amp on volume 2 on stage and it's plenty loud enough
I can fit the amp, my case with leads, mic, spare strings...etc... my vocal mic stand and bass stand in the boot of the car without having to fold the seats down!

I was going to get an extension speaker for it, but honestly don't think I'll need one :D

I don't change my gear very often but when this near new GK Neo412 cab came up for sale I had to pull the trigger. I still love my old school GK heads so this gives more headroom for those louder / outdoor gigs. It has the same sound as my neo 112 cabs but fuller, punchier and louder. My biggest concern was portability but it's surprisingly easy to handle.

Wow :shock: That is a wall of GK goodness! The two speaker covers on the 4x12 make it look like two cabs, but I guess that isn't the case.

Yeah looks that way huh.... not sure why they did that.

I've used the quad for a half dozen gigs now and it's great sound and volume wise. Considerably easier to transport any distance with the wheels than the 1x12's but it does take up more room on smaller stages and in the back of my car.

Yeah man I still really like it. Feel free to come check it out some time.
I still use one or both 112's for most gigs so I'm not planning on selling anything as yet.
I can't believe the Rock shop are trying to sell those for $999.... crazy.
What you are you playing through these days?

No cab since I sold my GK212 ... was going to get a GK112 but Rockshop are too hard to deal with and $999 is nuts
Sold my 400RB and 800RB and bought Martys MBF500 so will probably get a Barefaced One 10 or Super Compact :)

An MBF and one of those cabs sounds like a sweet compact setup.
I just bought an MB800 off trademe and that's a narly combo with the 412 neo.
Sounds great with the 112's as well although I have to be really careful I don't put too much juice through them with that head.
About time to sell one of my older heads... just got to decide which one.

I'd sell the 400RB based on what I got for mine :( plus you can bi-amp the 800RB with the 412 and a 112 :D
