That is really cool. I could see myself selling my 1x12", putting a tweeter in my 1x10" and picking up one of those... but then I don't really need any new bass gear at the mo. :)

I think it's definitely something worth investigating further, especially when the sub is around $550 new and has a 600W power amp built in!

Nice, that would be a powerhouse. I'm digging the tubing I assume that mutes sympathetic overtones past the nut on the F bass as well, very steampunk.
HA! I forgot that was on there, a leftover artifact from the weekend's gigs....;)
How's the Walkabout going for you??
It’s great! If only it weighed under 1kg and fit into a gig bag pocket like the puma 900 I’d be set for life...

Yeah the Puma is a pretty impressive package, smokes most class D stuff I've tried, still, I'm happy with my old school GK 800RB for gigs these days!

I've been thinking of a similar set up, but more to run my Meatbox through without scaring the hell out of the sound guy or blowing up the PA or shared cabs. 😁
