My church doesn't have any equipment other than PA, Keyboard, and Drums(with no cymbals). I use my SWR LA 15 combo with my Samson Airline Bass Wireless and my ESP Ltd F series five string. I play through the PA also because if i turn my amp up to fill the room it gets out vocalists all upset because its too loud.

I don't play bass, but I figure I'll put this here. The church doesn't "own" any of our instruments that we use, I can't say that they do.

Sunday morning bassist uses a nice, nice Jackson 5-string. He plays through a Peavey [unsure of model] 115.

Wednesday night youth bassist uses an nice, but old Fender P-bass. His amp is a Fender Bassman 25 (I think).

The amp is a Peavey Minx 110 (old model). The bass is a 20 yr old "Kimberly" bass (does that company exist anymore?) that seriously needs an action adjustment, it's way too high. I can barely play the thing. We usually use our own basses.

Drop D is when you tune the first string (E) down two half steps to a D. I like it because it gives you a whole octave of "bassey" notes...

I play a Ramon Jacinto early 90's PJ. It's old, and past the twelfth fret my intonation gets weird, but I can't do anything about it because the bridge is rusted beyond adjustment. The neck also has a wicked backbow, so I've had to slide in about 2mm worth of businesscards under the heel joint to lower the action.

Plagued with problems as it is, I love it...its been good to me, and is always there when I need a bass.

Incidentally, to lower the action to an acceptable level, I often tune all the strings down two whole steps (from EADG to CFA#D#). This produces this visceral rumble that threatens to overdrive the PA (I play through the PA, since we don't have an amp).

All in all, I am content

But come to think of it, given a choice, I'd probably use an upright most of the time: its got the thump (more like THE THUMP), the visceral low end, and when bowed, it shakes the room.

Our church has a samick lb11 4 string (bottom of the line) bass, Jansen 100 watt amp (also usless). The samick is proably worth like $50 in the states(in from new zealand). We have nice sound gear though. All studiomaster amps 2500 watts throuh front of house (1600watts high end , 1400 watts subs). 1400 wats spread between 8 fold backs. Nice desk to allen and heath gl2200. 32 channeel 6 bus desk> very good 2 use. Of only the spent lest moeny of fancy sound gear and more on basses and amps and guitar? (sigh).

I pitty the man who owns a samick
