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.
I have had a few good rehearsals with the Big Boy 330 and wanted to give you an update.
This amp is simply stunning!!!!!!!!!
It gives back to you what you put in. I have tried 5 basses now.
A fodera monarch, Rickenbacker 4003, Fender Jazz Active, Fender roscoe Beck and a mim jazz with darkstar pickups.
The Big Boy sounds fantastic with each one. From the nuances of the fodera to the treble bite of the Ric.
The EQ points are perfect. Absolutely perfect.
The volume is mind blowing. And completely clean to well above any scenario I could ever imagine needing it.
I have another tube amp that is rated at 435 watts but the Big Boy 330 stays cleaner much much longer.
The output and EQ from string to string is flawless. Notes don't jump out or duck on you. My drummer didn't realize until after rehearsal today that I had a new amp. He was commenting on the balance and note clarity.
He said he could hear every note and every run perfectly.
I couldn't be happier with this amp and want to thank you. Not only is it beautiful to look at it, but it sounds fantastic.
I will give you an update on the DI after our next gig or recording session as I haven't had a chance to try that out yet.
The amp is beyond my expectations!!!!
