We don't have a van at this point, so playing my entire set-up isn't really possible in a live setting.

This is my situation and I have less than you do.

I think I'm just picky. It's hard to find the perfect 'creepy molester' van with circular one-way windows, let alone that in a matte black. I'd feel wrong driving to and from shows in anything less.

The space echo was a deal of a lifetime.  $150 and it's in pristine condition.

I haven't recorded with the set-up yet, mainly because I haven't had a chance to.  I just picked the 215 up a few days ago, and getting the two 612s to the studio in a car isn't gonna happen. I've mainly been tracking through a 412L(would love to find a second one, killer 4x12), but we're going to be doing some floor recordings in the space, so I'll be able to hear it in full effect very soon. I think the YBA-1A will be great for getting nice low bass tones.

So, for purposes of bi-amplification, can anyone suggest something beyond a plain old ABY switch? I know there's that bit of signal loss, so what would you all suggest?

I use an electro-harmonix deluxe memory man and a DOD 680 analog delay and it works very well with rigs stacked up on opposite sides of the room. even if you aren't hooking up massive rigs both pedals are great for dark-sounding drone/space atmosphere.. the memory man is kind of like Godspeed You! Black Emperor in a box, though I believe they actually use a real space echo.. still sounds great.

I'm looking at the Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai, but I've thought about running both amps through the Space echo.  I'll maybe go to the space and try it tonight, and let you know what's what!

Edit: Wound up buying the SMM.  Love it! Can't wait to hook it up and run the rig!

hey nice thread!

I worship Sunn Amps and lead a doom stoner sludge band...and I'm working on a drone doom ambiant project by myself...

I'm the only string player in my band (scream, baritone and drum) so I manage to sound huge! baritone lespaul and Sunn Amps...

Here's the pics I've took when I just came back from getting those 2 baby in mint condition for a awazingly low price!



I'm looking to get a 3rd amp (1971 Sunn Solarus with 1x15 Sunn Cab) this weekend if it's not sold already...the more amp the more voices...the more huge is the tone!

A DMM is amazing on 2 amps...on each side...I now have a Laney head in a Traynor 2x15 just for the fx out of the DMM...

2 Big Muff, one Bass on the Sonaro and the Wicker on Laney and Solarus...use the dry/direct outs to split the signals...no lost!

I'll post pics of my actual setup later...I need 3 mics the record the 3 different voices...hahaha!

Keep the Doom alive!

Damn! So clean and aesthetically flowing! Are there any recordings of this rig?

what kind of cabs are those? Looks to be 15s or 18s?

Thanks!

It's actually 2 small cabs, 1x15 close back Sunn Transducer on bottom and a 2x12 open-back Vintage Fender on top.

What's nice is that they are from the same year but from two different owners...they are mint, just one as some nicotine smokey on the grill...apparently use to be in a stripclub..god know what they have seen...hahaha!

Hopefully I'll have a youtube tomorrow...I'm doing a outdoor show today with my doom stoner sludge psychadelic band...Molusk Repu...

And there's more Sunn coming in the family...i'll take a family picture when setup...! I just hope the 2nd potential buyer don't gets it before me...I'm a fanatic. :evil:

Here's my latest family picture...



For now I use a Solarus / 215 and Sonaro / 1x15+1x15, it's ballsy as hell!

I have one Solarus KT-88 gone for a full recap...can't wait to ear it at full power with the tremolo...!
