I'm wondering what Bean owners use in conjunction with their guitars/basses. For example, Amps, Pedals, Cabs and additional guitars/basses other than Beans. I'll start this one off: My current rig is TB1000S for guitar. I run this through a Rivera Knucklehead 100watt guitar head. My cab is a Marshall 1960A 4x12 loaded with Vintage 30 speakers. I've stripped down my pedal line up over the years. I use 2 Audio Crowther Hot Cakes. One is for full on distortion fury, and the other is a mild distortion that I like to use in conjunction with my clean setting. Sometimes I'll put the Audio Crowther Prunes & Custard Distortion for crazy sounds. I use a Boss TU pedal tuner... that really doesn't matter, but I thought I'd let you know anyway. I primarily play with my bridge pickup since I like the "bite" and "punch" from that. My guitar is all original.. and sounds great. Before I purchased my Bean I played a Gibson Les Paul Studio. Alright... whose next? Thanks admin

Over the years I've played my TB1000S thru a variety of equipment depending on my tastes which are always evolving, and the style of music. I have found The Bean to alway sound great and to retain its character, whether played thru a foxx tone machine, a ring modulator, dual EH 16 sec. delays and into a traynor s.s. bass head w/ 15" EV speaker, OR straight into a brown princeton, sf vibrolux reverb or marshall studio 15 which is what I do nowadays.

I have tried severel amp's and speakers for my TB 2000. I think a Hiwatt 100W head from early -70 and a Peavy 18" Black widow is what I have been most satisfied with. Unfortunatly I sold a lot of stuff some years ago. Now I use a Laney RBW200 which is OK for smaller sessions.

Spin the bottle : ))))) TB500 to Peavey Special 130 Combo(solid state), with home-made tube preamp (2x12AX7 3 gain stages) plugged between peavey's preamp out and pwr amp in. Sometimes on 2x10(noname)+2x12(old jensens) cabinet. I've recently bought Traynor TS100, and I'm checking it out - not very bright but nice texture... I use all pickup combinations. Peavey's preamp defines sound initialy - clean/distorted/fat/thin... Tube preamp serves as a compressor/equalizer/master volume effect. In all, a variety of sounds, from tin can to space ship... :)
