  1. Love the look of these amps but dont think i can stretch to £500 notes which is a shame, trying to move my trusted Trace Elliot on to try one of these. have a bump from me.
  2. Hi All, I am thinking of selling my trusted Trace Elliot AH-300-12 300 watt head carpet covered (pre Gibson made in Essex) and matching 4x10 (1048H) with HF horn. All in as new condition apart from the cover on the gain rotary (fell off in the late 90's never have been able to find it). Only problem is im not sure how much to put them up for. I'm looking for something lighter as my back is not getting any young so would consider a trade for a TC RH450 and cab or something simular and lightweight. Added pics now, sorry there not very big, if you want bigger then please ask. Regards Rob
  3. Thanks all, Going through the passive section has given me the extra gain and i am now set around 8 to 9. Thanks Big Rob
  4. Thanks all, Have plugged in the passive section now and that gives me the amount of gain i need. Set aroun 8 to 9 now and the valves sounding sweet.
  5. Mep, I'm talking about the gain, I'm not mad!!! I would break the foundation of my house on 10 volume.
  6. Will try a new lead. It sounds fine but the valve is not being driven enough. So sounds not very dirty even full up.
  7. Can I adjust the gain inside the amp, I am plugging in active basses with high outputs but i have to crank the gain up to 10 just to get in the ok but only when playing really hard. Can anyone help! Big Rob

  9. Pick ups are close already would not like to get them any closer. Thanks for the advice.
  10. Hi All, I have a Trace Elliot AH300-12, I am plugging into this an Alembic Mark King signiture and my other bass is a Warwick Dolphin pro 1. The problem i have is that with both basses i have to turn the gain up to 10 just to get into the orange ok when played heavy. There is plenty of volume and the amp has been the same since new, but i am finding that the compression section and the valve section are not really working at there best. Is there anyway that i can adjust the gain pot or something inside so i can get more gain for the basses i am plugging in. Hope someone can help want to start driving that valve harder and with the low gain its niot really possible. Thanks for your help in advance. Big Rob
  11. Hi Martyn, I would love this bass but i just can't justify this at the moment, however someone is going to walk away with a great bass. Good luck with the sale. Rob
  12. Dear All, I have a Boss-532 and it has been collecting dust for a couple of years now, I have used it very little and it just seems a waste to let it sit there. Therefore i am thinking of selling it or possibly trading it for a Bass Multi effects unit (something good by Boss or Korg or someone). If i were to sell it i was looking for £95, as it is as new condition in the box with the instructions and with a power supply. Regards Big Rob

  14. Could you put a picture of the damage up please?
  15. Would you be willing to sell the 2x10 cab looking to buy one for around the £100 mark?
  16. [b][/b]Brought this new two weeks ago but it does not suit the music i am currently play (shame as it sounds funky and i so wanted it to work). I brought this for £59.99 but i am willing to sell it for £45, it has only been activated a couple of times and not even by foot!, comes boxed with instructions. I am based in Kidlington Oxford.
  17. Hi, I'm looking for a guitar tech to do some scratch removal and polishing on my black gloss bass. Does anyone know of anyone good who could do this work for me at a reasonable price? Regards Rob
  18. Thanks for the advice all, has anyone had any scratch removal done by a guitar tech or have any idea how much they may charge?
  19. I have just purchased a Black Warwick Dolphin pro 1 and i love it, (was for sale on this site). Its 20 years old and as you would expect has a few light scratches and some not so light ones. My question is how much would it cost to get a guitar tech to polish as much out as possible? and the second question is could i do it myself if its costs the earth for a guitar tech to do? Would be grateful for some advice as i don't want to be ripped off by a guitar tech. Also does anyone know the controls on the early dolpin pro 1 (one with bartolini pickups). Cheers all Big Rob

    Hello all

    Hi, I have been playing bass now for about 18 years man and boy. I started with a Washburn bass and a carlsbro amp, moved to a washburn status bass (still miss that one) and started to use Trace elliot amps and cabs. From there i went to a Jaydee Mark King which i wish had never sold and traded in for a Status series 2 (great bass don't get me wrong but still miss the JD). Current set up and the same for about the last 10 years is a Alembic Mark King standard in walnut and a Trace Elliot GP12 amp with a 4X10 cab, still on the look out to rekindle my love for the JD so if anyone knows of any up for grabs then please let me know. Currently playing in a band which mixes alot of technology with the standard guitar bass and drums setup, not techno but trying to use the tech to add an extra layer to the sound, also love to try and chuck some funk in whenever i can. Current bands name "The Nicole Steel" Rob.
