  1. I've been on the lookout for a 5 string Aerodyne for years now! Don't come up often. That's a pro and a con I suppose.

    Bought Freddie's BF Twin - top guy to deal with. Only just managed to squeeze it into the boot of my saloon car. GASing for an estate now! Cheers Freddie!
  4. [quote name='cheddatom' timestamp='1465893327' post='3071829'] my contents insurance covers stuff left in the car as standard. I wouldn't normally leave a bass in there, but if I've got a gig in the evening and a business meeting on the way, I'll probably not take it in with me, just try and hide it as best I can. [/quote] Be careful, if you get paid for gigs then your house insurance probably won't cover your music equipment in that event.
  5. Forgive the 'have you turned it on and off' style response, but are you sure you're not just switching the amp between standby and on? It is a 3 position switch: Top, off. Middle, standby. Bottom, on.
  6. I had a feeling that it might be here somewhere. I scanned the first couple of pages but didn't see anything related.

  8. I use the above with a small length of XLR to tidy things up a bit otherwise the thing sticks out like a sore thumb. I bought an attenuator after I got a poor sound this one time from an inexperienced engineer. Every gig since I've told the sound guy about the hot output and things sound great - never had to use the attenuator but handy to pack in the case.
  9. [quote name='TimR' timestamp='1428316099' post='2740067'] Do you use it a lot? [/quote] I am at the planning stages of putting a lighting rig together. I need something before a wedding in June. Those headbangers caught my eye and have pretty decent reviews, even in audio mode but don't want to rely on that entirely.
  10. [quote name='TimR' timestamp='1428274136' post='2739906'] Post a link to your DMX fixture. Do you mean Chanel 11 on your fixture is strobe? Seems odd unless it's a 16 Chanel fixture. In which case I think you can usually fiddle with addresses and fool the controller into controlling it by using channels 1-8 on one address and 9-16 on another address. I'm not totally sure about that though. [/quote] Ah, it's only channel 11: http://www.soh.cz/data_images/Image/pronajem/manual/headbanger.pdf [quote name='Norris' timestamp='1428274077' post='2739904'] I don't really need a foot switch [/quote] Perhaps I'm being lazy, there would only be 3 or 4 settings maximum that I'd need to switch between so there really is no reason why I couldn't use the mixer. Found some wireless DMX receivers which look handy too. Seems to be a lot of cable that comes with the territory.
  11. [quote name='TimR' timestamp='1428272750' post='2739897'] Actually things have moved on since I last looked. Foot switch and DMX controller all in one £84. I think I need one of these. https://m.thomann.de/gb/stairville_led_foot_8_dmx.htm?ref=mm_a_15 [/quote] I saw this earlier, looks to be perfect. The only thing that put me off is that the strobe effect is on channel 10 and 11 and that is an 8 channel mixer. Would this mean that I wouldn't be able to have any stobe? Seems a bit daft. Not sure if this question is standard DMX related or one I'd have to ask the manufacturer. All new to me this is! Can see why it could become GASeous to some!
  12. Norris, how do you switch scenes using your Stairville? It looks like a nice bit of kit, could just be the thing that I need.
  13. I'm currently at the stage of shopping around for lights for my band so I'll use this opportunity to high jack the topic to ask for advice if you don't mind?! I'm quite keen to get a lighting rig set up which can be adjusted with a foot controller. I've seen some moonflower LED lights, lasers and some pretty sweet looking motorised LED spots which are all DMX controlled. My question is, would it be possible to programme a foot switch for solid colour or slow fades for slow tracks, and strobe effect and faster colour changes for faster songs? Assuming this is possible I'd love to know what kind of equipment people use. At the moment we use two PAR64 cans to illuminate the band using the sound activated mode. This looks a bit pants and I'd like to get the lights looking more uniform to give a more professional feel. Anything to help disguise my playing.
