One amp and a pair of cabs.

Epifani Piccolo and 2x Barefaced One10s. Does everything I need at the volume I need with a total weight of 16kg so I can actually get it to the gig...

If I had a van / someone to carry my stuff, I'd also have a full fat Glock rig.... but i don't... so i don't... :mellow:

TC RH750
Genz Steamliner 900
Genz Shuttlemax 9.2

Genz NX2 212T
Aguilar DB212
TC RS210 x 2

All fantastic. Out of everything I owned, tried, gigged, these are my ideal setups. 2x10 for small gigs, if I want a tall 4x10, then the 2 RS cabs. Genz 2x12 for lightweight one cab solution, Aguilar DB 212 because it sounds bloomin' beautiful.

Plenty of basses and pedals.

2 cabs (EBS Neo 212 and SWR Bass Monitor 12)
Plus a beaten up old Laney DP150 head and no-name 15" wedge that I use for home practice/testing etc.

two amps currently (i do spend time in 2 places though!) but may need to get a jam capable one later this year.

1. Laney HCMB15
2. Eden EM15

less watts combined than my granny's wireless

3 amps (after a recent bout of trimming):

GK MB Fusion 500 - a pretty recent purchase that I still haven't used in anger

Trace Elliot AH250 GP12SMX - great head that I usually find myself running back to every time I stray

Trace Elliot Series 6 1215 combo - weighty but compact, great tone, very loud and built to last. I'm just a sucker for old Trace gear!

1 cab:

Barefaced Super 12 Silver Cloth - lightweight 2x12, compact and 4 ohms so sucks everything very efficiently from my amps. I'm looking to try a Super Twin as they must be pretty special to top the Super 12

And 6 basses at the moment (1 out on loan and 1 currently up for sale 😉)
Fender MIJ 70's Reissue Precision 2011 Olympic White & Maple
Musicman Stingray 4H (3 Eq) 2003 Black with tinted gloss maple neck refinished by Jon Shuker
Ibanez BTB 675
Squier VM Precision V
Vintage V96 S'Ray clone with Zolkow preamp
Trace Elliot AH250SMX
Trace Elliot AH600-12
Trace Elliot 1215 Series 6 Combo
Barefaced Super Twin
Zoom B3

3 basses, about to go down to two I think. I think I've I've owned all of 8 over 45 years, rarely more than two at any given time. The last time I bought one was 13 years ago.

Cabs: a single 112 which handles all my gigs these days. I simply wouldn't take a booking that requires anything more. For practice at home I have a pair of homemade 115 cabs a variety of top boxes with various mid drivers and tweeters.

Amps: two DIY solid state heads, five or six different preamps (also mostly DIY jobs), and three power amps. I'd happily sell off most of that stuff at this point, as I really only am looking for at most two or three specific tones anyway.

I've always been more keen on the amplification side on relatively indifferent to collecting basses. Same for guitar as well.
