Cory Robinson's 12-String Bass Rig

Cory writes, "Here are some pics of my latest rig. It's a Mesa Boogie Buster head. It's all tube, 200 watts of power. It's powering one Avatar 2x12 cabinet loaded with Celestion G12-T100's, and one old Sundown 4x12 cabinet loaded with Celestion G12-S75's."

"I use a MXR M-80 pedal / direct box for EQing. No need to use the distortion channel anymore with this setup. I use the direct out from the Mesa head as it's from the pre-amp. I also use a Furman Power Factor Pro for regulation and filtering and it really does work!"

"I travel with my old G-K RB400 head as a spare, just in case. You never know with tubes!"

"As for my Musicvox 12ver, I just rewired the whole thing. I removed the bridge pickup entirely a-la Tom Petersson. I never used it anyway. The neck pickup is now wired direct to the output jack. I discovered that all the pots were wired in reverse and that is why the controls on the Musicvox are 'quirky'. It has a much fuller and brighter sound now as its not being loaded down by all those pots and caps."
