Taking a short break from playing shows since we're lookin for a new vocalist. So I imagined this as a better time than any to polish up on my practicing and finding a better sound for my myself. So here's my gear that I'm keeping in the rig...

- Carvin BX1200
- Schecter Studio 5
- Ibanez BTB455
- Boss TU-2

Here's some stuff I want to get. I'm getting rid of my 15" and 2x10" Cabs for a 4x10".

- Carvin BRX10.4 Neo
- DBX 166XL
- Sansamp Programmable BDDI

It's not much but it's still a decent chunk of money to me, haha. I've heard amazing things about this Cab and it's strong enough to hold all 1200w from my Head and can handle the low B really well. The DBX seems to be loved by everyone and isn't priced too harshly on the used market. The Sansamp I want just so I can switch between multiple channels when I change Basses.

I've somewhat been contemplating switching up my BX1200 for a BX500 though, not sure about that one.

Anyways, what do you think? Thanks.

Reading in your sig that its a TE 1028H... I'd stay with the current cab set up. The celestions in the TE will be better than the Neos in the Carvin I reckon, unless you're absolutely sure through trying the same set up in a shop against each other.

If your custom 1x15 was home built then it probably isn't amazing, no offence, update that instead? You could even upgrade to a 1x18, TE make one of these or you can get an old one off the net.

If you're set on the DBX rack mount then I would get it, dual compressors are always really handy but if you're not 100% and would rather invest in floor pedals rather than rackmount system then I would suggest the BBE Optical Compressor. I have it (although I seemed to have lost it) and it's really subtle but helps with my overall tone quality so much. It really tightens things up, and although its not dual band or a noise gate, its cheaper, simpler and less intrusive I think.

Still lookin for one. Do you happen to live in MN and can sing really well? Haha.

I'm just sick of running more than one cab so I'm lookin for a do all cab.

one 4x10 may not handle the wattage unless you're getting neo's...maybe a 6x10 from warwick/ampeg may fit better.

Since you clearly like Carvin gear (as well you should), consider this rackmount compressor:

The one I tried was first-rate. I liked it better than the DBX 166.

Your amplifier is capable of almost limitless tones, so I would start with the compressor (whichever one you like), then look at a cabinet and finally the SansAmp.

Well I just ordered the BRX10.4 today... Hopefully it won't take too long to get here.
