  1. SOLD - MXR Bass Octave Deluxe

    Hi Ben Where in Cardiff are you? I'm up in Pontypridd. Interested in the octave pedal. Is it still for sale? Cheers Tim
  2. Cali76 TX tips

    The tx is an awesome pedal. Stunning sound and tweakability. I set mine between 4-8:1 release at around 3pm and attack to taste depending on what you want. My input is around 10oclock and the output around 2oclock. With a pbass and rounds.

  5. THiS / Debut album (alt rock)

  6. Hi guys My band's new album 'Hoc Est' is now available. The website is streaming the first release. It is available to purchase on 180gm vinyl and cd with digital downloads coming soon. www.hocest.uk Cheers Tim
  7. Which Fuzz help?

    Zoom ultra fuzz is a good one. Built in gate should you need one as well. Loads of flavours in one box
  8. Gordon Smith Explorer value?

    Thanks both much appreciated. I've placed an ad on gumtree.
  9. Gordon Smith Explorer value?

    Hi all, Just after a bit of advice really. I bought the aforementioned guitar from this very forum during 2010. It was bought by a member here and totally unused, and I bought it from him for £600 with the case so it is still in as new condition. I'm a terrible guitar player and it has been sat in it's case since then. It's the dual coil tap humbucker version, in natural finish with brass nut and black scratch plate. Any comments or ideas are welcome as i would like to put it up for sale soon to help with costs of the recent newborn in my life (and to free up some much needed space). Cheers Tim
  10. NAD Matamp Green...

    Beastly things aren't they. I always smash an sft into the front end just for a bit more articulation and poke. I've got an album coming out soon which I used mine on. Just had the test presses back from the vinyl plant, sounds awesome. If I had the cash I'd have a full backup rig as well ✌️
  11. NAD Matamp Green...

    How you getting on with the amp? Is that the mark 2 gt200? I've got a mk1 they are just phenomenal. Such great amps ✌️
  12. Hearing problems

    Funnily enough, my right ear is playing up right now. I'm putting warm olive oil in to soften any wax buildup, and am hoping to book a gp appointment next week to get it removed. The key thing is not to panic, which is sometimes easier said than done. Def get a referral to ENT though 👍
  13. Nirvana made an incredible impact on me as a youngster. Without them I very much doubt I'd be playing music now. I still love their albums to this day. I don't think Novoselic gets enough love, his basslines are fantastic and are a massive part of the whole sound. His nimble melodies on 'lounge act'for example, really serve the song well. Incredible band for me anyway.
  14. Pedalboard build... your essential pedals?

    Cali76tx for compression & catalinbread sft for a little push
  15. Cali76 TX settings

    Hi Krispn, sorry only just saw reply. I recorded my band's debut album with this setup and we had the test presses back from the vinyl plant yesterday. Unfortunately there is a little glitch in one of the songs so it is being recut. I have a cd copy of the master but there is nothing up online at the mo. As soon as it's available I'll update this thread so you can have a listen. I used a pbass into my cali76 through to a sft set for mild push, and into matamp rig. It sounds great to my ears, weighty and full with a subtle growl. Yeah I'll update this thread asap 👍
