Dig That Rig : Dana, via e-mail

August 26, 2010

digmyrigI’ve got a 2007 Fender American Jazz Bass upgraded with Lindy Fralin pickups and strung with D’Addario Half Rounds, and a 1997 Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay with DR groundwounds. My amps are Ampeg SVT-3PRO and B2RE heads with Ampeg 115 and 210 Classic cabinets.

The pic shows my favorite combination: the SV-3PRO with my J-Bass. The upgraded pickups in my Jazz bring out more detail and responsiveness—I love the bass’s clarity. The 3PRO’s tube preamp provides a warm and tubby, almost “liquidy” fullness to the amp’s clean tone. I play indie-rock, pop, and soul and appreciate the rig’s versatility. For small gigs I might use only one cab, but I never have a problem keeping up with a strong drummer!
