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!

[quote="markstuk":3jbhmm8n]For the size and weight it's an astonishing cab.... Sounds nicer than a single EBS proline 410... And as loud...[/quote:3jbhmm8n] Yeah, the Compact is essentially half of what you have - just a simple 1x15. With the EA iAmp 550 Micro it's all I need, plenty loud enough and really fat... When I think of some of the rigs I used to lug around, the flightcases alone weighed more than my whole set-up now! :roll:

Time for an update...I know I've changed my setup a bit, and I know some of you have too, Current setup: [img:2vfazlpj]http://homepage.mac.com/burningskies/.Music/fEARful_IP_IPR.jpg[/img:2vfazlpj] It looks like the 'leaning tower of boom' here, but really it's the room (er camera phone) that's leaning. When I last posted I was running a MarkBass Little Mark II into these two monster fEARful cabs. It had a couple of problems. First off, the power amp limiting on the lows was driving me nuts. I have one of the best B strings in the world, and every time I hit something low I felt like the carpet was being pulled out from underneath my feet. Also, I was getting a funky mid-range breakup if I pushed too hard. Newly crowning my amp is one of the hen's-tooth-rare Kern[b:2vfazlpj] IP-777 tube preamps[/b:2vfazlpj]. One of the TB faithful PM'ed me out of the blue to offer up his Kern. I couldn't say no. Sometimes I've discovered that the gear will find you if 'someone' decides that's what you should be playing. For those who have never seen one, the Kern is a high-voltage hand wired, point to point unit. It's got 2x 12AX7's plus a 12AU7 for the DI out. It came to my door way with a set of Sylvania JAN tubes that do sound fantastic. The pre can sound as 'tube' or as clean and wide as you want it. It also has a REALLY big deep low end. Underneath the Kern is my new entry into BIG POWER. Its a [b:2vfazlpj]Peavey IPR-3000[/b:2vfazlpj]. Running one cab off of each channel I'm getting about 450w per cab. Or if I bridge I get 2900w, or about 1500w per cab. The difference is astounding. And I'm not just talking the volume. It's clear and clean at any volume, but the guys in the band commented that it has the presence and clarity of the bass that they've only heard from a large, professional concert PA. Its so clean that you don't realize how loud it really is. A bonus point...The Peavey is 7 pounds. The whole rack is ~20lbs., maybe a few less. I've built this rig around my Dingwall Rastaburst, and I can't imagine anything that would be better for it.

I used to use a combination of a Berg and a Schroeder as well...in my case it was a HT115 with a 1212 on top. You can get pretty loud!

Thanks! Use the full 1200 watts of amplifier (Schroeder 800 watts / 8 ohms + Bergantino 400watts / 8 ohms) and separates them if I can react according to the situation.

Greetings from Bulgaria of all owners Dingwall! This is my modest setup [url=http://www.picvalley.net/v.php?p=u/2497/134938827515090576451277407097XbTVoDvnqoZ6UDGXBieg.JPG:2rkaxujz][img:2rkaxujz]http://www.picvalley.net/u/2497/134938827515090576451277407097XbTVoDvnqoZ6UDGXBieg.JPG[/img:2rkaxujz][/url:2rkaxujz] [url=http://www.picvalley.net/v.php?p=u/2598/449041609114852943712774071090K1xZd0GsrSIo0gw627G.JPG:2rkaxujz][img:2rkaxujz]http://www.picvalley.net/u/2598/449041609114852943712774071090K1xZd0GsrSIo0gw627G.JPG[/img:2rkaxujz][/url:2rkaxujz] [url=http://www.picvalley.net/v.php?p=u/2456/137622812113955817501277407120Np6CNurI00PDbFHw0vwp.JPG:2rkaxujz][img:2rkaxujz]http://www.picvalley.net/u/2456/137622812113955817501277407120Np6CNurI00PDbFHw0vwp.JPG[/img:2rkaxujz][/url:2rkaxujz]

Its interesting to see how we all sort of have different ways of hitting the same end goal. Keeping things clean and clear, but having the volume and tonal range that we need. It's the underlying theme of all these rigs. I've not played a PJB rig, but a good friend of mine, who's a local full time player had one for a while and it always sounded great to me. It almost has a subtle sub bass to it. He ended up getting rid of it for the weight, plus it was a bit too 'boutique' for him, in a roots/blues/zydeco gig.

[quote="rollerberg2000":32cz1wc8]DHP, I am interested in your opinion of the six pack, I notice you're running two six pack cabs with the M-500. Does that suit you for gigging? I would love to downsize my big rig when I get too old to carry around the big toys but I'm loving the PJB sound. What kind of music do you play and does the double six pack stand its ground in a live setting?[/quote:32cz1wc8] I play oldschool rock. The big PJB rig is unbeatable for open air, I reinforced the power output to 3kW and finally I changed PJB P1 preamp to Warwick Jonas Hellborg. Load the truck with big PJB rig is one hell, but the sound on the stage brings great satisfaction. Only one SixPak is not enough for the club stage, 2 boxes with good PA are better for good feel, but SixPak with M-500 amp is too heavy as well. Maybe PJB NEO boxes will bring right solution, but I didn´t test them. I love PJB sound, but every year is PJB heavier and heavier, so I prefer MarkBass Traveler instead 2x SixPak and my old, tired bones says "Thank You!!"

If you want to really hear what a Dingwall sounds like, try out a Phil Jones amp, it does nothing to color the sound of your bass, only amplifies it. Of course you can then EQ to your hearts content with parametric and graphic EQ sections, each of which can be defeated or used simultaneuosly.
