Post subject:  What amp do you use?

Just interested to see what different amps people use to give their Rics a voice!?

Currently I'm stuck with my 180 watt Ashdown EB series, it's not the nicest amp, very awkward to carry and it doesn't give a true reflection of my 4003.

I do play all styles of music including Funk, Soul, R and B, Rock, Metal, limited amounts of Country and everything else in between!

So what do you all use and what music do you play?

I use an Ampeg SVT 350H head with an SVT 410HLF cab. VERY Squire sounding! An amazing head-cab duo. Very deep, trebly, growly, punchy, you name it; it'll sound any way you want it to! My Rics love this amp!

I use a Genz Shuttle Max 12.0 with 2 Orange OBC 115s stacked. I have an alesis midiverb in the rack with the Genz and use just for my own amusement sometimes.. If Im using Ric O Sound, I run the bridge pickup through a Fender Blues Deluxe reissue with pretty much all the bass taken out and some gain added..... well.... quite a bit of gain added. Love it!

Mesa Boogie Walkabout: 300w, 1x15 combo with a 1x15 Mesa speaker cab. It is a very versatile amp. It's also loud as hell. I have never had to turn it above 1/4 on the master volume knob (there are no numbers on any of the knobs). I usually play a 4004L. But ocasionally I will use my (1980) 4001.

Tecamp PUMA900 amp with either a Glasstone Lil'G cab or a fEARful 12/6/1 w/12 sub.

I also have a Mesa Walkabout 12 stack that sounds really great. More growl than the other 2.

Some really nice amps being used, I'm thinking of going for an all valve head for my next amp, just unsure on which are there loads when you start looking! Think it's going to be a fun game while I look around!

I use an old ('80's) Marshall tube amp that I got when I bought my first bass. It was the same model the bass's owner used to gig with (small clubs); plenty loud, and it's served me well. I have been looking at solid state amps lately, though; I have some basses (like an Alembic) that would probably work better through one. My 4001 and 4003 sound just right through the Marshall, though. For most of the stuff I like to play, I should be using an upright, anyway.

I use a GK 200MB 1x12 combo for small jazz gigs, a Vox AC-50 through an Asdown 1x15 cab for small retro-rock gigs and a Line-6 Pod X3 through front-of-house for that rare-as-hen's-teeth open-air gig.

I use a SUNN Concet head, 1-18 and a Peavey horn. I also use a Fender Rumble 350 with 2-10s and horn! Sometime together depending on the size of the gig!
