: All,

: I need some advice our church is building a new auditorium and we are
: getting all new equipment. Including a new bass rig, which will be played
: by a number of bass players (about 10 bass players will use it regularly,
: with different people sitting in from time to time). So a group of the main
: bass players are looking for a new system, the issue is that everyone has
: different ideas of what sounds good.

: Currently one guy has been looking at a Sun 300T Amplifier with the Sunn
: 2x15 cabinet, he also looked at an Ampeg SVT system (one of the models with
: the all tube amp, with the 8x10 cabinet). Me and another guy have told him
: to look at Eden and SWR (he doesn't like SWR and says they distort, but I
: only think he has heard the workingman's stuff).

: The current bass rig is a SWR Workingman's 300 with a Hartke 4x10 cabinet
: (not a transporter series), it sounds alright but lacks power, and we are
: looking to bring the quality of the tone up a few notches.

: I would love to hear what people would recommend, we are looking for a
: system which is flexible and can offer a good range of sounds, but is also
: easy to get good tone (as a few of the players are not tech heads), and has
: a good amount of power (need good amount of stage volume, but doesn't have
: to light up the room, PA will take care of that). This is kind of an odd
: situation, as everyone has an opinion and we all have to share the system.
: (it's kind of funny watching a group of bass players try to come to a common
: consensus, I think it is almost impossible)

: Thanks in advance for your advice,

: Bryan

: Some of the systems I have thought of would be:

: SWR Bass 350 or 750 with a Goliath III and Son of Bertha, or Goliath III Jr.
: and Triad cabinet

: Eden WT Series Head (or a Navigator with a Mackie amp) with a 4x10 XLT, and
: perhaps a 1x15 or 1x18 cabinet

: Kern Preamp or Demeter preamp, Mackie amp, and some type of cabinet...

: But I'm stumped...

> It sounds like you've got plenty of money to spend, Go with the best...
David Eden WT-800 and two 4-10-XLT 4 ohm cabinets. This system
will make ANY bass sound good..That church will be ROCKIN' !!!
Pass the collection plate, though, you're looking at at least 3 grand..
