new bass gear on the way

Ordered the new Hartke LH500 head, with Bass Attack Pedal/DI last weekend... Said it was backordered and would ship June 5... got email said it would BE HERE tomorrow.... Went and picked up a used SWR Goliath III 4x10 to run it through tonight. WOOHOO! AM psyched with a silent capital P.

PS: (And I have a used SX Jazz shortie getting here this weekend. just a cheapo to backup the Birdsong, but I thought i would throw that in too).

Congratulations.

I have 3 SX "shorties" right now. They are pretty nice basses for the money. I have, however, done a lot of modding on mine.

I will reserve judgement till it gets here... But i am thinking making it string through (cause I like to do that), and eventually maybe new pups, but no hurry, cause it is just a backup and will only get played at ball games with my students or at church or gigs if my Birdsong is ever out for any reason...

Here are a couple of my SX shorties. The bodies are SX Tele. Everything else is SX shortscale bass.

Got home in time last night to grab the head (got delivered to the neighbors today) and head to practice. Good grief, the LH500 and Goliath III 4x10 sound awesome! Huge sound... so much more clarity and definition than my old rig (Ashdown EB 180 15" and 2x10 extension cab), I love it. My guitarist was going nuts about it too. The drummer just got a set of mics and a big sub... We were thumpin' last night

Good to hear!

As much as people say gear doesn't matter and you should just plug away on what you have... it really does make a huge difference.
If you're not liking how you sound it's hard to get into, you don't practice as much and it's just not as enjoyable.
