Hi from Italy,
I'm using an Epifani UL501 + Epifani 1 x 12 Dist3 and I couldn't be happier.
It's a relatively new system so I have to experimenting a bit. Not a big setup but for small jazz club is perfect.
Ciao
Roberto

The forum is back!  Cool

Here are three vids of one of my bands, Bad Weather Boyz... sadly, defunct as of last year.  Zoom Q3 camera catches the stage/monitor mix, but my Sadowsky P5 "Red" comes through well enough (for better or worse...)

I regularly get queries about the sound of my Sadowsky MM5, so, here's "Whitey" with my rock band.  Again, it's my Zoom Q3 set up behind the mains, right in front of me and my NV610.  Yes, I need work on my pickstyle technique.

Last but definitely not least, my ideal rock tone, featuring my '05 P5 "Blackie":

I just took the sdtrings off and shot some photos. This is my fingerboard after 3 years of heavy playing:


I'd love to see that after some "extra fine".   Grin
How could you ever part with an old friend like that.

An update to show the tan lines on the body. Who said poly finishes don't darken?:

I got a Tone Hammer 500 and should have an SL112 soon.

It's a great amp at 4 lbs! It even sounds good through the 212. But I really like the sound with one or two of the 112s. I had the GS112 first, or I might have gone with the SL cab also. I went through a few Eden WTXs first, a bit less money, but the sound wasn't as natural as the Tone Hammer. Actually, the TH500 and one GS112 still seem to weight less than my DB750 in the rack case!

I sold my AG500SC and a pair of DB112s. They sounded great, but I wanted something smaller and lighter. The TH500 sounded great with the DBs, I hope it sounds also great with the SL112.

Aguilar DB750 with a GS212 cab + Aguilar TLC pedal. Thinking of adding a GS115 or GS210 (if I can find one) to the rig.
Update: Still have the DB750 and GS212, didn't like the GS210 and I needed a smaller amp sometimes.. I now also have an Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 head with two GS112 cabs. I can either use 1 or 2 112s or If I'm feeling really insecure I can use all three cabinets with the DB750, a 2.67 ohm load and approx 800 watts.

One of the things that I love about my Sadowsky JJ4 is that the volume and tonality of each note
on the fretboard is almost perfectly balanced...no dead spots, no hot spots,  no hot strings...(like an over powerful A string)  no weak strings (like a thin and weak sounding G string)...
Every note at every fret sings out with equal power and sustain. 

I thought it must be this one amazing bass...the J.  But now I've added a nicely cared for 09 Sadowsky P bass to my inventory and last night, gigging with it for the first time, I found that it, too, has the same balance of note at every fret.  I used to avoid going up the neck on the G string on my other P bass as much as I had to caress the A string to avoid booming loudness from it.   But now that is all in the past. 

How do you guys do it?  How do you accomplish such a balance of note and string output?  Is it in the pickups?  The wood?  The electrics?  The set up?   Is it all of that and more?  Do you have a secret supply of Mojo?  Whatever you're doing it's obvious that you're doing it right.

It's an amazing experience to play a bass that is so beautifully dialed in.
