Shuttle 9.0 and Berg AE410...but lately I've been feeling like it lacks low end booty.  Nothing adding a 115 to the mix wouldn't, but the Berg AE410 is a 4 Ohm cab so I'm think about rearranging my whole rig.

Is that a dbx graphic eq I see? If so, please tell me about how it's working for you. I use a dbx 160a comp. & have debated getting a dbx eq. to pair w/ it but I'm not convinced.
Thanks bro.

For most Rock gigs I use either a Thunderfunk 750 or Orange Terror Bass into 1 - 4 Aggie GS112's, Worship same head choices into an Acme Low B2, rehearsal TFunk 550 through a DR Bass 2460 and I use a Mesa Walkabout Scout when a combo is the proper choice.

My R5/24 into a TFunk 750 with 3 GS112's has got to be my fav "rock" rig, the tone is fat, rich and quick with enough volume for almost any gig

Current setup:

Pre-amp: Vanderkley VA615 www.vanderkleyamp.nl/va615.html

The Vanderkley VA615 is a fully hand-wired all tube (2x ECC 83/12AX7) bass pre-amplifier.
This preamp is designed to maintain a brilliant, natural, open and deep bass sound under all circumstances.

The unit has very large headroom and extremely low noise and hum making it one of the most silent preamps on the market. High input impedances, low output impedances make it possible to drive difficult loads and/or use long cables.

With the Eq-section switched off the preamp gives natural open sound, when the Eq is switched on this natural character is maintained. The 5-band passive tone controls with first order (6dB/octave) shelving or band-pass filters are used to tune the sound to your personal requirements. This type of tone control guarantees an open and musical character at each setting.

The VA615 has a built in parallel effect-loop with phase correction for true deep bass reproduction. The level of effect can be added to your original signal via a potentiometer on the front panel.

A floating transformer prevents any ground-loop hum when the balanced D.I. output is used. This makes the D.I. extremely silent and therefore suitable for advanced studio applications. In a worst-case live situation, there is also a ground-lift switch on the back- panel.

The preamp is not sensitive to mains clicks and distortions on mains voltage variations and features a soft switch on/off.
