So far it's got that vintage tube, warm, tone perfect sound. I turned up the gain a little to get that grunge, distortion, angry sound & blew through Entwistle's "The Real Me"
Whhoooooooo! Looking forward to trying it live.
So, I've got about 20 hours of rehearsal time into the Big Boy 300.
I have never heard or played anything quite like it. It is so warm, so powerful, so many tones, so much detail, so full, no dead spots;
the super lows, the lows, the mids, the highs, I simply have not found an area on my fret board that is mute or retarded. It is ALL there.
I have never really been a big fan of 15 inch bass drivers. I find them too mushy, too tonally limited, too much lost detail. Well, I'm starting to change my mind.
The Big Boy drives the 15 inch driver in my KW cab like it's never been driven before. It is tight & detailed, there is no mush or loss of detail.
It is crisp and moves in & out with such authority & punch. Also if I stand in front of it, it moves so much air!
I love, love love it!
We gig out this Friday. Looking forward to see what it will do in a big hall.
The Big Boy 300 had its live debut. We had a full house with around 400 guests. Standing room only. Your amp performed flawlessly. It put out way more than enough sound.
Clean, Crisp, Full, & Warm. I was amazed at how much power I had. A bass player whom I didn't know came up on stage afterwards and asked, "What The Hell Are You Playing Through?"
He laid his hands on the Bog Boy and caressed the ash & felt her heat. He then placed his hands on the KW Cab and did the same. He told me he loved the sound & the power.
He looked through the handle holes and back & admired the fire & glass. He couldn't believe how big the transformers were.
We recently did a five band outdoor concert. I was with the opening band and after hearing my Bass on the Big Boy 300 and my KW ultra-bass cab. The bass players from the second, third, and fourth band all asked if they could play through my rig.
They said it sounded incredible and wanted to try it. I of course obliged. Just thought you would like to know.
