I am looking at upgrading my bass and guitar rigs which was proving expensive, but i heard its possible to use a power amp for both applications like the mesa 50/50. Is this correct?

Yes, it is possible.

You'd two different pre-amps though, and two different cabs..

yeah, you could probably get away with the same preamp even, but you'll definitely have to either only use bass cab(s), or have 2 seperate cabs. You'll wreck guitar speakers running a bass thru them, but you can run a guitar thru bass speakers. The guitar will sound better through guitar speakers obviously, unless you're after a specific sound. Ideally, you would want 2 seperate preamps, one for guitar and bass, and 2 seperate cabs, a bass cab and a guitar cab like already mentioned.

hmm, whats your thoughts on that one Randall cabinet that has got 2 12" speakers, and a 15" eminence legend..

Maybe that could handle both of his needs in one cab?

the 15 might, but I don't know about the 12", they are probably made for guitar right? If it can split stereo between the 15" and 12" that would work pretty well I would imagine. Nice concept though, it would be cool if you could find an unloaded one and stock it yourself. I think I've seen some old Fender cabs that had that config too, and those things are solid pine. Is that any good for bass though?

well i was thinking of doing an adam jones and using the bass cab for guitar as well as its own 2x12. the first thing is im not sure if i could use my existing 6505 as the preamp effectively or my dsl50. one of them is going to get sold.

..actually now im thinking of getting a marshall valve preamp jmp and the mesa strategy400..would this kick ass?
