  1. Ashdown James LoMenzo HyperDrive - Bass Distortion Pedal £60 Posted Hardly used and in great condition The Ashdown James Lomenzo Hyperdrive Pedal is an ultra versatile bass distortion pedal with the ability to deliver your original bass dry tone and distortion - never get lost in the mix again. During more than 30 years experience playing and recording with iconic rock musicians including Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, David Lee Roth, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash’s Snake Pit, White Lion and now Megadeth, James envisioned a bass drive effect that operates entirely unlike any other distortion unit currently available. Now Ashdown has made that vision a reality. In the LoMenzo Hyper Drive, a band of frequencies within the midrange of the bass signal is filtered out and the distortion effect is added only to this band. The filtered frequencies can be ‘tuned’ to the precise range that gives the optimum effect. The degree of distortion available is variable from a subtle break up to huge overdrive, enabling a new range of extreme effects for bass to be created. The distortion effect can then be mixed with the original dry bass signal to maintain a powerful, full-bodied bass tone with distortion overtones. “I’ve been using the Hyper Drive every night and it’s truly astounding,” reports James from the current Megadeth tour. “It turns all my basses into fire breathers!”
  2. Marshall GV-2 Guvnor Plus £30 Posted Purchased in 2001 on a whim and hardly used
  3. Artec 8 Band Graphic Eq / Pre Amp SE-EQ8 £25 Posted Virtually unused The quality sturdy metal casing has an underside rubber pad for 'non slip' floor use. You can make adjustments to the tone and volume of your instrument by boosting or reducing the band width controls and the volume control on the SE-EQ8 The SE-EQ8 also has a 'True Bypass' footswitch that when pressed, it puts the signal from your instrument to your amplifier without any of the tone and volume adjustments that you have made. This is useful when you want to give yourself a tone or volume boost in solos. Power Supply: DC 9 Volt (Not included) Case Dimensions: 70(w) x 115.5(h) x 34(d) (mm
  4. Possibly, but the guitarist and myself have been playing together for over five years and we've usually had a second guitarist, but we feel we would like to try going down the power trio route so this pedal could help me a lot in filling out the sound, and if Daniel Spriewald's tone is not quite right, then there should be plenty of other tones I could try with this pedal. At the moment, I don't use any pedals other than my Boss TU-3 tuner, so this would replace my tuner and give me a lot of options regarding tone in just one unit. 😉
  5. Thanks guys, I was edging towards the Tech21 DP3X, but you've now convinced me. 😉
  6. Ok, after a bit of researching some of your suggestions, its a toss-up between the Tech 21 BSDR SansAmp Bass Driver DI V2 Pedal and the Tech 21 dUg Pinnick DP-3X Signature Pedal.
  7. Thanks for the advice so far. I use various Precision basses, Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2 and a Barefaced Super Twin Cab
  8. I’m thinking about forming a power trio with my guitarist mate, up until now we have always played lighter rock so I’ve never really bothered that much with pedals, but I would love to produce a bass tone similar to what Daniel Spriewald achieves when playing with Phil X and The Drills. Yes I know that even if my rig was exactly the same in every detail to what Daniel uses, I would never be as good as him, I still wouldn't sound like him, and it’s all in the fingers etc, but if I can add some grind and distortion without losing the bottom end, I think it would help big time with what we want to achieve. If anyone can give me some advice on what pedals might help, I would very much appreciate it, but please go easy on me, I’m a complete novice when it comes to using pedals. My rig consists of: Various Precision Basses, Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2, Barefaced Super Twin Cab Here's a few clips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNCSQZI1hro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIS4zOH70pg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59m6BoEVkng
  9. They look decent quality but I've already ordered one from Barefaced
  10. Despite saying I think I might go for the Roqsolid cover, after getting to the final checkout with 5mm padding, VAT, and shipping added on, I decided to pay a little bit extra go with the Barefaced cover instead.
  11. Thanks for the info Paul, I think I might go for the Roqsolid because its really just to give it a little bit of protection between the car and the venue
  12. Just got myself a Barefaced Super Twin and want to get a cover for it, but the Barefaced covers are extremely expensive being twice the price of the equivalent Roqsolid cover. Anyone have experienced of both, how do they compare?
  13. Here's an update. Tech support finally asked me to return the interface and fair play to them, within a couple of day they confirmed that it was faulty and sent me a replacement. The new interface works how it should, the signal is recognised by the DAW and the green light comes on as the gain is turned almost immediately. So its a big thumbs up for Mackie tech support. 👍
  14. Or just convert it to a QuickTime (.mov) file, then you can upload it direct because the file size will be very small
  15. Meeting up for the first time with three other muso's through JoinMyBand exactly a year ago, we plugged in, tuned up, and the first half-a-dozen songs we played all sounded great, everyone had done their homework and had actually worked on the songs we agreed to run through before turning up. Best first meeting I've ever been involved in, and we are still together now. 🙂
  16. Don't know whether I should admit this or not, but I had to search on YouTube for "The Gambler", I've never heard of it and didn't recognised it when it started playing. I have have always steered well clear of country music because I just don't like it, I respect all genres of music, but country just isn't for me. 😉
  17. 👍 I will have it. PM'd you
  18. PM'd You on Thursday, is this cab still for sale?
  19. I agree that thinking 'you gets what you pays for' isn't always a fair way of judging things, but in my 68 years of literally buying thousands of items for all things in life, 'you gets what you pays for' has come into play so often with many of my purchases 🤔
  20. This is not a dig at The Clash because I actually quite like them and think its a great song, but in what way did London Calling change music history?
  21. Just like Stew, most of the technical stuff goes over my head too, but thanks Phil, I now know that the 2000 watts claim is misleading and I will probably look for a 500W 15" cab manufactured by a company with a better reputation, I'm not saying that this cab is rubbish because I've not heard one put through its paces, but I have now read a number of reviews where users have said that it does go quite loud, but after a certain level, it loses definition. For just over £200, I suppose a lot of people will take a chance on it, but I'm worried that I would probably regret it after a while and wished I had payed a bit more for better cab, and be thinking "you only get what you payed for" 😐 Anyway, thanks for all your help guys, this is what BC is all about 🙂
  22. I expect that many people would see these prices and not go back to them again but they might if they just said, "these items are temporarily not for sale at the moment" instead of putting ridiculously high prices on them? 🤔
  23. So for a numbskull like me, what is 2000 Watts in real money? 🤔
