  1. Past hour
  2. So basically, "give us your Streamer, and in return I'll etch a permanent reminder that I've pretty much mugged you onto your skin"?
  3. Really appreciate the prompt reply. Will PM you now.
  4. And I guess the important thing with all of this discussion around Q is not to get overly concerned / bogged down (as I am rapidly in danger of doing myself - haha!). A key point is that a "surgical Q" in the context of bass tone doesn't necessarily imply a better tone. In fact a broader and smoother Q could well be the better sounding option. It brings to mind the (somewhat out of fashion these days) smiley EQs we used to see across the ubiquitous TE amps in all rehearsal rooms 'back in the day', which clearly had a smoothing intent to the overall mid scooping of the bass EQ.
  5. In return for a 2014 custom Fodera 6 Elite 6-string I had, some clown here offered me the pick of 3 basses from a selection of 4 he had - 2 US Standard Precision basses, 1 US Standard Jazz and a G&L L-2000. I think a lot of chancers think you're super desperate to sell/trade or they think you're actually really dumb.
  6. No One Knows...I'd had a bass set up in Drop C#, but hated the flappy strings (and the spare bass for one song); got the Stomp, took the relevant preset, dropped the pitch to C#, saved it as another preset, job done 😀
  7. Yep, cant have any of that pesky "thinking" now can we. Just grab the tin foil hat jibe and walk away in ignorance.
  8. yep defo great pedal. i have one for sale in the classified check it out.
  9. Question; Admitting the bass it flawless, delivered with Gigbag (Ritter), Strings (Elixir), is equipped with Delano pickups and Schaller Light machine heads, Hipshot bridge (oh my, those are expensive!), Is 1200€ (£1060) a fair price? @Andyjr1515 @Jabba_the_gut @Manton Customs guys, you're more experienced than me, I'd love to have your opinion on this...
  10. i always run my basses into active input, some are active basses with active on of switches, plus i nearly always have some pedals running into the amp, Helix stomp currency always on with minimum of a light compression. I just fine it easier than switching between active and passive and when switching basses, just just increase the volume on passive bass or reduce when switching to active and use master amp volume if required. That suits me best and i think you get a more consistent cleaner sound ( clean as in smooth controllable). if you have a active passive on of switch that usually -10db then just use that but separate inputs a always go into the active input.
  11. I prefer a straight sale but in case of proposals I can evaluate, so please only private messages
  12. It's probably just me and my short attention span, and the fact I'm quite busy. I started watching, then fast-forwarded a little, just in time to see you take a swig of coffee. I'd just make it shorter, and to the point. I watch quite a few of Janek's vlogs, his seem more structured, yet at the same time informal.
  13. drop C# even for QOSA just above stings rattling loose.
  14. create a patch and put it on here for downloading onto Helix. sounds good.
  15. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  16. I realise that, although you were non-specific enough ask about a 'normal' EQ with fixed Q, which is a pretty open question. That said, seven bands with centres between 50 and 10,000 hz aren't going to be what I'd call 'pretty narrow' in the big scheme of things. Given that there are 31 band hardware equalisers out there in regular use and very frequency specific notches possible, the bands are probably fairly medium Q. While it's more specific than the EQ on a Marshall Super Bass, something like the GEB-7, while useful, is hardly a surgical EQ.
  17. The binding is purely cosmetic i would say, i rather like it. Doesn't cause any probs when playing, it's very smooth as per the neck etc. Yes Stephen, it's the 70's FSR with vintage style tuners, neck profile, PuP's and hardware etc. Nice light Ash body too. Db.
  18. It's too long. I would do them shorter, and maybe script what you're going to say?
  19. I've not toured mainland China but have played Hong Kong so maybe that's different? It was an unusual but huge gig playing at the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens. All seemed pretty normal and we were treated extrememly well.
  20. Musicman Sterling Bass With Status Graphite Neck. Condition is Very good, however any marks photographed. Delano pickups and pre-amp allowing for some excellent sound shaping. Switch for changing between passive and active Status graphite neck, chip on first fret cannot feel when playing and a few small marks on headstock USA Musicman Sterling body with custom paint job. Has just been professionally set up and new Elixir strings strung. Comes with official musicman sterling case Plays well and sounds great however I prefer 4 string basses! Feel free to ask questions and potential trades
  21. Hi all, £100 inc postage in UK Mint condition. No box but will box appropriately Letting my Afterlife go for no other reason that I don't use it anymore. Awesome reverb with some really interesting noise-making capability, lots to say about it, but always just good to listen to it: I also created a 'noise' video using it in conjunction with some other pedals (Afterlife comes in about 48seconds): Cheers Si
  22. Hi My digital scales give me slightly different readings each time but the average of five is 3.60kg (cheap filling station tat!). The min-etune system doesn't use any screws so when i decided to replace it i had to think long and hard about whether to drill screw holes in the back of my guitar. I looked at loads of videos and forum posts about the best options and decided against the Kluson style as they need two holes per tuner. I'd settled on the Grover rotomatics as they only need one hole per tuner and that hole is covered by the min-etune if it's ever refitted. Then i found that the Gotoh tuners are a direct replacement/copy of Grover rotomatics and the 510 locking tuners have really good reviews so that's what's on. So, yes, there were six holes drilled in the back of the guitar for the tuners. They'd be covered if the min-etune was refitted. And a meet in Hertfordshire is still on the cards. I've got a couple of trips planned in June but I can always take a run down with a day or two's notice. Hope that helps 😀 Thanks again for the enquiry
