  1. according to @Jus Lukin it's actually -12db/Oct fixed at 30hz plus -12db/Oct variable. (as quoted on the massive HPF filter thread on page 15) HERE Matt
  2. there is a far more in depth thread on here, 16 pages and it gets quite technical at times. Basschat on HPF's Matt
  3. yeah i remember a thread about this, i think that my markbass F1 has a built in HPF but i also run straight into the PA at church so added one to my mini church board as a precaution, if i add one to my main board it will mainly be used as insurance for any time i'm not using my amp (or if i end up buying another head) the one i linked too is pretty cheap compared to a thumpinator and imo worth it as belt and braces insurance if i'm using a house amp somewhere or sharing a rig with another band. Matt
  4. i think there are a quite a few people on Basschat that use a HPF, and i'd guess that a fair proportion are using the Micro Thumpinator as they used to pop up in threads all the time (and occasionally in the for sale section) I'm using an adjustable HPF that i built from a kit after hearing about it in the DIY effects thread. it was very easy to build and works really well. Mini HP Vong kit I'm actually thinking of buying another as i have 2 different pedalboards and want one for each. Matt
  5. I've been using strings direct for about the last 10 years since string busters started having issues, bass direct might also be a good option I think. Matt
  6. not all US strings are expensive in the UK, it's just the smaller brands (DR/SIT etc.) the big companies like D'addario and Ernie Ball are similar prices to UK companies like Rotosound It's probably down to the economies of scale that the big companies can take advantage of. Matt
  7. if it were my money i'd either be looking at the handbox or talking to Martin at Stoneham, the YI200 is listed at 1500 quid and 280w output, last time i was over there having an amp serviced i enquired about a 100w ish version and he hinted that it would be possible with a pricetag somewhere around 1100 i think. Matt
  8. strings direct list a few options other than boomers and precision flats (black tapewound and one gauge of pressure wound) but that's it. I love the precision flats though, absolutely perfect on my short scale. Matt
  9. i hope i'm not breaking any rules posting it here but i've put up a wanted ad for a silver/pewter/metallic grey 5 string, my friend is still looking to replace the one she sold as a skint student (actually her Husband is looking) we think it was a SB405 with the jazz pickups, any leads on ones for sale gratefully received. Matt

  11. I've only ever had one rig that got close to matching, an Ashdown superfly head and a Neo Ashdown 4x8" cab, after that i swapped to a SWR Headlite and the 4x8, then swapped out the 4x8 for a pair of the gen 2 Barefaced Midgets (possibly the last batch made as the Gen 3 was released about a month after i ordered) not long after that i swapped from the SWR to a Markbass F1 head, and that's been my rig ever since. I've tried the cabs with Aguilar, Mesa boogie (i think) and a Mk1 Orange terror bass heads at Basschat Bashes, they all sounded fab but i never had the cash to swap out the F1. (although i have acquired an earlyish Trace Elliot AH250 GP11 which also sounds fab with these cabs) For me I don't feel the need to match the cabs to the head, but if i'm running 2 cabs ideally they would be designed to work well together so having them the same make is a good start. Matt
  12. I bought a Petrol Bag from Manuel, it was quick, efficient and arrived well packed, i'm a very happy customer, trade with confidence. Matt
  13. Hello, is this still available? Would it be possible to get some internal measurements please, hoping that this might be long enough to take my micro pedalboard setup. Thanks Matt
  14. I'd definitely echo @Doctor Jand suggest a right angled plug, also not all jack sockets are created equal, the Switchcraft ones are generally regarded as the most reliable/robust so are worth the premium, for the pots definitely try contact/switch cleaner first, if that doesn't solve it then a good tech shouldn't have much trouble replacing the pots, it might take a little searching for the exact replacements but i'd give good odds that it could be repaired Matt
  15. are you looking at the same bass? the 4 string versions are quite easy to get hold of, but the 5 string has fairly patchy availability, some places have stacks of them (G4M) but others have none (Thomman) Matt
  16. The strings are la bella 760fs-B-S, .045, .065, .085, .105, .128T Matt
  17. well, the Day has come! at 3:30 this afternoon I met up with Andy in a services and took possession of the bass. It's stunning, the balance is perfect and the neck is absolutely spot on. It's getting a first run out tomorrow morning at church, I'll report back but so far I'm over the moon! Matt
  18. i have a Trace GP11 AH250 and a pair of Midgets, but due to lockdown i've never actually tried them together!
  19. WOW! i might have to go and have a little lie down after seeing those pics. I Just hope my playing can do it justice! i might need a couple of weeks of practice before i make any sound clips public. I'm voting it Bass of the Decade! Matt
  20. i'm getting very excited to finally get my hands on this bass, arrangements are being made and i'm counting down the hours! Matt
  21. I'm with @51m0n on this, i hate having excess cable, and on this particular board i'm very tight for space, it's a Mooer M5 board/case that i have removed all the foam from and added velcro to, so it was designed to take 5 micro pedals and i'm trying to squeeze at least 6, possibly 7 micro pedals. the cable i've got is Van Damme installation cable so it's quite thin and flexible, and i've put the power distribution under the board to save space. I've been making my own cables for 20 years at least now, it was just that last batch of plugs that seemed to trip me up, hopefully the new ones will work out a bit better. I have bought cables in the past for pedalboards but they've all ended up in the spare cables pile and been replaced by home-made ones to keep the excess cable to a minimum. Matt
  22. thanks for the info, i'll add Hicon to the list for the future. Matt
  23. How do they compare to 4 pole mini xlr plugs? I have a few different diameters of cable so hopefully one of them will be compatible. I think they will be saved for just the situations that really need them, I have only ordered 4 of the tiny plugs and 6 of the rean. Matt
  24. yes, i'm expecting the Rean ones to be good quality, i have used the straight Rean plugs for a while, and the RCA plugs are pretty good too. I'll report back when my parcels arrive and i get a chance to make up a cable or two. Matt
  25. I love neutrik, and have a box full of them but on this pedalboard there just isn't the room for them. I have order some of each of the 3 I originally posted and will see how they are to use. Matt
