  1. Yes!!!! My true filter love. I ADORE the original, even if both of mine developed speaker-blowing capabilities. It’s the tone, feel and response I’m always chasing in other filters. Don’t mind the lack of blend, and a volume control was a mod I had done on both of mine. Colour me excited by this!
  2. Ha! I didn’t see that - he designed the amp! There, that worked!!!
  3. Send a message to AgedHorse/Andy on here - he destitute amp. Great guy, super helpful.
  4. Should at least be multicoloured to be called Clown Vomit. Maybe it’s one of those ones that changes colour when you look at it from a different angle, possibly revealing some semi-digested popcorn?
  5. I’ll second Lozz there. Mine is a joy to play - satin feel on the neck is just heavenly. Sound is awesome. It’s a bass I genuinely get excited playing - just damn fun.
  6. Another vote for ForScore. Load everything in as pdf, arranged set lists on the fly. Bluetooth foot switch will stop it looking like you’re checking emails between songs.
  7. Acoustic Image heads all (AFAIK) have an adjustable HPF. Highly recommended. Also recommended is the Fishman Platinum ProEQ preamp, with an adjustable HPF.
  8. Piezo pickups typically used on double basses work better with input impedances higher than 1megohm, so they’re just making it more enticing to upright players. As far as I’ve heard/experienced, a higher input impedance doesn’t make any difference for electric basses.
  9. Could be Ricky Warwick from The Almighty?
  10. Without giving away too many spoilers - what did you think of the fretless?
  11. And a further update - the good folks at Ashdown got back to me, Ant was sent to them on a Tuesday, back in the post by Friday and all is lovely and quiet with the fan. Quality unit, and quality service from Ashdown.
  12. Another vote for the 3 Leaf Audio GR2. My happy place filter is an Electro Harmonix Mini Q-Tron. I love mine to bits but it's a potential speaker destroyer when it wants to be.
  13. To resurrect this thread - I have an ANT! Bought it a week or so back from fellow Basschatter PaulHornBass. Alas I have yet to take it out on a gig, but that will hopefully change soon, or at least with an orchestra rehearsal. Tone wise I'm diggin it - it's just nice and plain and simple - does what it says on the tin. One concern I have is that the fan is very loud indeed. Loud to the point of definitely not using that in the studio, and possibly not using that on theatre gigs. I've written to Ashdown asking if this is the norm or if it can be tamed in any way but am still waiting for a reply. Other than that I can see this amp getting a lot of use.
  14. I had the same experience as SumOne. I absolutely loved the sound of the IR’s - made playing through headphones a whole new thing. And then the pedal would not be recognised by my computer no matter how many updates, re-installs, etc were done. Pedal returned and back to analog for me, despite the digital pedal sounding and feeling awesome.
  15. Bought an Ashdown Ant from Paul this week. Great communication, packed superbly and sent out at the earliest opportunity. Would happily buy from again.
  16. Sorry to hear that Laurence. Best wishes.
  17. Bobby Vega does indeed. I used to use the big Dunlop triangle picks, then tried regular ones. Didn't like the flimsy-ness of the thinner tip but didn't want to go back to the big green triangle. Tried a regular pick the Bobby way and it's the comfiest thing even, Just feels RIGHT.
  18. Boss LS-2 is great if phase isn’t an issue. Especially good for balancing and/or volumes between clean and wet signals. Barge Concepts VP-jr is a great one if you can find used - usually has a phase switch on the side. Best for both for me was the fx loop in the Bassswitch. Had everything - phase, blend and volume boost.
  19. Danbowskill is selling an MXR Bass Octave Deluxe in the classifieds, if that tickles your fancy.
  20. I'm on the 2 x 1x12's. I would toy with the idea of getting a third but reality reminds me that, if I'm on a gig that needs that much, I'm more likely to just put my cabs on to a flight case.
  21. The designer of the Streamliner is a regular here - AgedHorse/Andy. He’s been really helpful to me in the past with any Genz Benz issues/queries. Drop him a line, he’ll be the perfect guy to point you in the right direction.
  22. My condolences to all who knew him. I didn't know, and might possibly be one of the few who didn't buy or sell anything to him by the sounds of it, but I always remember seeing MB1 on so many posts. It really is like having regulars in the pub, and it's sad to lose one, to not see that face there anymore. RIP MB1.
