So i took out the big rig last night....

Post by Lukaas3 » 08 Jan 2018, 07:11

Just to a rehearsal mind you, and my God it was worth the lug.

No incessant twiddling with EQs, no plotting what to buy next to make it sound good,

Goes to show that the juice really is worth the squeeze and that while the idea of a one hand carry rig is great, nothing beats cubic inches.

the world has changed when a 212 is the big rig. Pretty sure we were all imagining something like the stuff listed in Doctor John's signature line

Hahaha, I was expecting an 8x10 weighing 90 kilos.

Having said that, I took my pair of 2x10's to a gig last week and the boss was all "Why did you bother with all that stuff?" hehehehe.

As tearalong said, the world has changed.

It’s not a big rig unless it would kill you if it fell on you.

My 2x12 and 900 watt is the small rig.

The other two involve some serious lifting.

Hot damn... Those basses, those rigs.

I always practice with my 410 + 210. I could get by with either cab standalone but it's totally worth bringing them both.

I know what the OP is saying...
I've been a little underwhelmed by my lightweight rig experiences (although limited) to date.
I must be a little bit old-school because to me; heavy rig = that sweet bass sound!

Generally speaking of course, all other things being equal, various other disclaimers, etc, etc. :)
