Ok, it's been a while since we've done this. We all have different tonal goals and settings, but its always fun to see what people are using to amplify their Dingwall Basses with! This is a chance to post up your current amp/cab/bass setup. If you use effects, don't forget those either!

For now the head is a Markbass LMII, but I have one of the new Peavey IPR 4500 power amps on order. That should give me just north of 2kw of power on tap most of the time. LET'S SEE 'EM Everyone!

I have a Red Ripper and like it. It is a pretty darn good fuzz - light to aggressive. The "R.I.P." knob is a kind-of "who knows what it's gonna do" knob. It can get an envelope filter type of sound to weird overtones with octave (maybe?) type of stuff. Maybe not so useful on a gig, but fun to play with!

Thanks for the link, but I was asking what is it like, do you like it, is it good as a "strange" type of distorsion pedal? I've seen a couple of youtube clips and it sounded quite mad. in a good way. :)

The Alembics sound interesting. Clean is good. And soon I'll hopefully have what amounts to several Kw worth of power amp and cabs that can handle it. Like most of us, I'm really into clean, defined bass but without sacrificing the lows. As of right now, I'm doing my best not to invest a huge sum into gear for a bit! :roll:

I had one of the Alembic F2-B preamps for about a year. It was overkill for me and I sold it on to a guy with a Alembic series I. (I was raising cash for the first Dingwall) It was more tailored to a stereo rig. Works great as a pre for the separate pickup send of those old Alembics. Basically it was two channels, based on the Fender Showman tone circuit. Very simple design, so a non working unit wouldn't be hard to repair. There are a lot of guys who have 20 years or more on these pres. It was a great sounding unit. Very organic, warm and breathy sounding. Lots of possibilities with the two channels and the ability to route one thru the other for tons of gain. The second channel on mine had some slight mods that made for more variety. Otherwise both the channels are identical. My research turned up lots of info on both bassists and guitartists who use the F2-B. David Gilmour is probably the best known user. They don't come up that often and seem to go for $400 and up used. Not much to look at, these things are all about the sound. This one was, I think, from the early eighties.

Thanks for the quality response. Next time I get the chance to try one, I'll definitely keep this in mind. I really like having the separate Preamp and Power amp setup. You can just keep plugging in different preamps without having to worry about power ratings and speakers. It's great!

I have been using that Alembic preamp since the late 1990's. When I had only one bass rig, it consisted of the F-1X and the Crest CA-4 (and before long the SF-2). IMO, the Alembic F-1X yields a very nice tone, but a very nice clean tone. No real tube grit at all, unlike the Aguilar preamps, which can get a bit of tube crunch if one cranks the gain. In fact, the Alembic has no separate gain and master controls, just a volume, so the only way to increase gain without increasing volume would be to use the attenuators on the power amp. The Superfilter is a very versatile tone-shaping circuit. It has two independent filters that can be set to low-pass, band-pass, or high-pass, each with a frequency and Q control. These two filters can be wired in parallel (e.g., to have independent tone control on each of two stereo channels) or in series. It is very easy to add a subtle mid-range accent (or not so subtle if you prefer), or to give some real low-end boost to compensate for speakers that roll off the lows. It doesn't work as a notch filter, however. All in all, both pieces are quality gear.

[quote="amodeo@mitre.org":1qzjzkul]I may have posted some of these pix on other threads, but as long as we're talking about amps, I might as well jump in. Like many of you, I have more than one bass, and like some of you, more than one amp. My most powerful rig is an Alembic F-1X preamp, Alembic SF-2 Superfilter, Crest CA-9 power amp (2 x 900w into 4ohms), and Schroeder 410 and 21012 cabs. More power than I'll ever need. When playing an outdoor concert with no PA support, I need to set the amp way off to the side or else it will just overpower everything else in the mix on stage. I also use a pair of Eden 210-XLT cabs (don't currently have a good photo to post). I have several other amps to pick from as well. Here they are (note however that the Crest CA-4 in the following photo is currently paired with an Aguilar DB659 preamp rather than the SWR Interstellar Overdrive shown). [/quote:1qzjzkul] I've always wanted to try the Alembic Preamp. What do you think about it in terms of tone and usability? How about the Superfilter?

I have an EA iAmp800 with a 2x10 and a 1x12,EA Micro(3lbs) and a 1x10, real easy on the back. Pretty much gives me more than I need at present. The Z3 in the photo now belongs to Rollerberg2000. Still have my Prima and a Custom SJ/P 4 on order. I'll post pics when I get it as it will be the 1st custom 4 string.
