  1. Wasn't it in Manchester before it was cancelled?? Hardly much of a location change to the extent that people won't drive to it now?

    Lovely looking bass, but what a pointless uninformative review. Basically the available spec in continuous prose.
  3. Stunning! I could never own a bass with that kind of finish as it would just get scratched instantly for me and I'd hate myself! But it looks fantastic. LP pickup too, didn't even know basses like this were still coming out the Modulus shop!
  4. I think at this stage really, sound quality wise all these high end devices are equal, it’s the form factor and the strength of the capturing that interests me the most. From the demos, it does seem to be more authentic than the Kemper, but in a mix/live, probably indistinguishable. Seems to come down to the unit itself, and I think Neural have got it completely spot on, it seems fantastic to use.
  5. Out of interest, when you cut your strings, do you bend the end of the string first and cut after the bend, or just cut it straight? If the latter, could well be you're damaging the string when cutting it and the core and winding has come a bit loose, which would create a rattle/vibration.
  6. Going by that grain, this bass has a wenge neck, rather than ovangkol, don’t undersell it! 🙂 Lovely bass!
  7. Absolutely this. I don't really care about the science of it, different woods naturally have different densities and vibrate differently. This certainly carries through to the sound being amplified. Chambered bodies certainly have a stronger say than solid bodies, but its still very noticable. A solid Bubinga body sounds nothing like a solid Swamp Ash body. But, equally, a particular piece of bubinga may resonate differently than another one. I have owned four Warwick Thumb NT basses, for example, all having identical construction in terms of how "solid" the build is, and two pairs of the exact same pickups/preamp. They all sounded different, noticeably so.
  8. Is this a Rockbass? Can't quite tell from the images, but I think it may be. What year?
  9. Maybe! Anyone else notice the name change? IE it is now ONLY called the Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine, and all references to ADAM have been removed, including the name on the pedal? Its almost like they've distanced it from being the Nolly signature pedal and instead are just calling it a collaboration, its a bit odd. I mean, I get it from the perspective of people being put off buying it as they don't like the Nolly/Dingwall thing, but it can't just be that. I've asked a couple of times on public posts and had no response...
  10. Always a struggle to find a parking space for gigs in town. At least with this bass I know I've always got a safe spot under the E string.
  11. First major Adam firmware update is here! Main feature, you can now get muchhhhh lower gain sounds, so it can now be used for grit, and it sounds great. They’ve added the option to move the cab sim to the end of the chain, rather than just the distortion side. They’ve added attack/release controls to the compressor in the suite (so the comp now has ratio, threshold, attack and release controls, which is awesome) They’ve formally announced the next update will include a built in noise gate. This has pretty much resolved all the issues people have had with the Adam, fair play to Darkglass for listening to their customers!
  12. Yup, just spec'd out a £2k P that I really fancy now. Thanks for that....
  13. Interesting piece for sure. It's interesting, as an awful lot of more expensive instruments these days have some form of chambering, particularly on heavier woods to reduce weight down, so it seems in many cases the more you spend, the more likely it is the wood will make a difference? Its certainly interesting when you compare the comments to that of someone like Sheldon Dingwall. He designed the Z series bass to have two piece bodies made of different woods, specially selected to enhance the qualities of the low and high strings. Is this just complete BS from him then? Who is wrong?
  14. How do you have the LPF and HPF set? LPF fully clockwise I assume?
  15. Not a brilliant example of HPW’s “massively aggressive persona” or something “downright nasty”, so I’m interested to hear what Cuzzie has experienced.
  16. What did he ruin about it?? Both the eighties and more modern Buzzard basses are outstanding basses and are snapped up whenever they rarely come available. The Bolt-On wasn’t a great idea, but it was just a way of owning a more affordable one.
  17. The irony of Sadowsky using primarily a Leo Fender design seems lost a little too...
  18. I agree. It is such a bizarre thread. Commented earlier about my top end 2017 Warwick and say again that it is exceptional, at least equal with anything else I have used in finish quality, it's stunning. But yeah, Warwick stopped paying for a License to use the NS design Spector used for their basses when Spector stopped invoicing them, so they must be rubbish.... Silly Roger, someone better let him know.
  19. Amazing bass! Tone clips here:- https://www.instagram.com/p/B_cFn6bA4R7/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  20. Missed out a key bit of info here, £££????
