GAS - Gear Acquisition Syndrome

That’s a great choice, Pam . . . :+1: About the same size as their 500 combo, but lots more versatility.

Wishing you good luck and many happy hours playing with it :slight_smile:

Oh @PamPurrs why oh why have you done this ?!
I have been thinking of separates and you’re recent purchase has really fueled my GAS :joy:

That was a good choice for sure - the only way I would consider a 500W head is as a standalone head :slight_smile:

The ironic exception being the Rumble as the Rumble 500 combo manages to give you a 2x10 with the head and still be under 16kg. Which is pretty amazing really.

@mac, part of my job here on BassBuzz is fueling people’s GAS. Thank you for validating my efforts. Now get out there and go shopping!

I would but I’m trying not to justify buying a custom Harley atm. But then again …:joy:

Buy a used shovelhead or something and upgrade it, save a bunch of basses in cash over a new custom :slight_smile:

I’ve got an old fxrs low rider that I should be upgrading but I’m missing my fat ass Night Rod and have really got to get passed it going. Sad but true
Most of the good older stuff has ended up going to Japan funnily enough

There’s a punk biker subculture here that dresses in '50s style clothes, greased Happy Days style hairstyles, rides harleys to parks, and has big drinking parties listening to early rock.

I’m not making this up.

Here I am with my lowly Rumble 25 Combo not understanding a damn thing people are saying while nodding in agreement about heads and cabs so I look smarter than I am.

I’ve learned my lesson over the years, buying on impulse isn’t good. I now use my 72 hour rule. If I think I really need something, I don’t buy it until I revisit the subject in 72 hours.

It’s quite simple really: a “head” is an amplifier without speakers, a “cab” (short for "cabinet’) is a speaker without an amplifier. So your combo is essentially a head and a cab in one unit.
