bargin shopper, I'm jusr cheap. But I do want what I want. I want to add a 5er to my (small) bag of tricks so I choose Ibanez sr505 it has Bartolinis in it EQ and p/u. Nice and for $550 or so. I would love a Warwick I just don't want the bottom end one it'll be a few years. I would go used. I love used but I compare I perfer new so I look for tthe cheapest option just new.

sorry for late post,  but i use a Kensmith black tiger elite 6 string with a david eden wt800 amp and david eden d410 xlt speakers.  Sounds lovely and it works for me.  

I am in the market of buying a used older model fender jazz u.s.a. 4 string bass possible around the early 70's late 60's model.

Update...New Rig!!
« Reply #42 on: December 08, 2005, 12:12:27 PM »
God has blessed me with a new rig over the last month and I am so grateful and happy. I used to play a yamaha RBX 765a through a Fender BXR300 combo amp and also a Behringer bass amp to a SWR 4x10 at church. I really didn't like the way things sounded. I have been dissatisfied for a while.

Well things have changed. I am playing the same bass through a BBE BMAX bass preamp (http://www.bbesound.com/products/bass_preamps/BMAX/index.asp)a Samson SX1200 poweramp (http://www.samsontech.com/products/productpage.cfm?prodID=1799&brandID=2) to an Avatar B212 bass cabinet (http://www.avatarspeakers.com/). Love it!![/url]

Ok, I'll add my setup here.

J bass project
Dean Edge Pro 4strings
SWR 160 head (oldie)
Avatar sb112 4ohms cab in tolex.

The church I play in has a SWR WM10 with extension cab, plus PA support. An Ibanez 4 stings. This will suffice for a small congregation.

Can you tell I'm new :)

I'm very happy with it. For the sound, price, quality and service; I think it's hard not to be. The tolex is something they are now starting to put on their bass cabs.
I initially was going to get the 2x10 as a standalone, but made the switch to 1x12 to get more lower freq and still get a good midrange punch. The owner recommended the sb112 or 212 for standalone. I went with the sb112 because of the weight.

Well I am not surprised to see so many Smith's. They seem to be very prevalent in our genre. However a Smith is not in my arsonal.
My main bass is an F bass BN5, now I am surprised no one has listed an F Bass at all. Also getting some playing time is my Fernandes APB-5 modded with EMG P5J pickups with the BTS System. The Only four string in the stable is a Marcus Miller Sig with the J-Retro preamp absolutely killer.  I have a custom Valenti 5er on order that's going to kill with the dual coil Norstrand pickups and the Aguilar OBP-3.
The rig is a GK 2000RB through Acme B2 II when i don't fell up to moving it I use my Ampeg BA115 and the house system.

I use a Conklin GT7, a Yamaha RBX350 that i defret. Both thru a A/B box into a Bass V-Amp from Behringer, and it goes into a custom made 200w Tube Amp, with 2 cabinets of 15". It sounds great, and the low frequencies are incredible. I also have used (and sold) a Ibanez SR350 (not recommended), and a Yamaha BBG5 (very good bass), a Tobias Growler 5 (the ones made by Mike Tobias himself, not Gibson's), but i need more strings, so i need this Conklin baby.

I play a warwick 6 corvette. I took out the crappy electronics and slapped on an aguilar OB3 pre-amp


Basedigrace,

Do you have any problems with that Aguilar ob3?  I did the same thing as you.  However, it will stop working at times.  I would have to remove the cover and relocate the wires, like seperating wires from one another.  It seems like there's bad connection but I went over everything, doublecheck.  I really don't want to take it out.  It sounds good, more than good.  Are you problem-free?

Me too!

My bass amp is feeling the effects of it being doubled as a keyboard amp, at home....I know. Don't shoot me!

I'm in the market for some powered monitors for my studio. I think I may get some 10s and a bass monitor. I'm not sure yet.

LOL....From the site that MysteryMan posted:

So, you don't play 4-string anymore?

To be honest with you, not if I can help it.  They seem really boring to me now.Whenever I pickup a 4 string now, it feels like I'm holding one of them big crayons that we used to color with when we were little kids.



BIG CRAYON?! LOL

When I get my 2 10s bass cabinet Im plugging my keyboard straight into it. Our old bass player let me plug my Roland xp10 in his bass amp a few times. I thought I had a new keyboard. The bass amp sound better than the amps I was using. They need to make a bass/keyboard amp with a 15, a 10, and a horn or tweeter. I see the Peavy kb5 has 2 10s but not sure of how good it sounds.
