  1. Head Suggestions Wanted!

    Cheers for that! I knew about the 'less is more' situation when it comes to getting a good sound out of a valve amp.....so will try and quietly nudge him in that direction......and point out the ears/back situation........so ignoring the wattage....what would people suggest was a good place to start......brand wise....? Sam
  2. Hello Fellow 'Chatters Posting this for our guitarist, who is considering options for a new head...... Current rig is a Laney Linebacker 100 Solid State into a Marshall cab (4x12, not sure on the actual speakers.....) Whilst it is a reliable and good sounding amp, he has become a bit frustrated with it's lack of 'character' so is looking for something valve driven..... He is looking for 2-3 channels and around 100W, and is veering towards Marshall (if so, which ones?).....plus want to put a few other suggestions his way..... We currently play a mix of classic rock covers, with a smattering of punk and metal (Bad Co. ZZTop, Rainbow, Sabbath, Judas Priest, GreenDay, Lenny Kravitz to name a few) Cheers Sam
  3. NBD: Boult Galaxy

    No Worries! Hope you find something that fits......! Ah ok, thought it might be.....
  4. NBD: Boult Galaxy

    That (those) are VERY nice! I am the proud owner of a similar shaped axe (Epi Explorer), which I love Case wise.....mine came with an appropriately shaped Warwick RockBag, which it fit in easily.....so that might be another option......if you can find one..... What are the controls.....?
  5. Corvettes (agree with the top horn comment above!) Single-Cuts (that aren't LP(ish) in shape) Fake/Bad relicing That 'Reverse Explorer' POS from Warwick..... Too Many knobs (not against switches though......) Not into quilted maple either......
  6. My Ric 4003

    Very Nice Collection 12stringbassist! I've always wanted a Ric....played a couple but never been able to afford one! Was just wondering... What are the Black/Black with maple(?) neck? And the Black/White with (what looks like) MusicMan at the neck? Cheers Sam
  7. Ah ok, Cheers 'Bunny! It's an Ampeg BA combo..... (one of the old(er) top mount control ones, as opposed to the front mount pseudo-wedge)
  8. Hello There, I have spied an amp for sale, being sold as 'spares or repair' for a great price.....thing is, the reason for sale is that 'the output transistors have blown and need replacing' Is this code for 'totally FUBAR' or is it a simple job for someone who knows what he is doing.....? It is local, and is an amp I have always kept an eye out for....... Cheers!
  9. Holy S**t............!

    Wasn't a DaisyRock.......but did once see a heavy metal band who's bassist was using a Hofner Violin Bass!
  10. Ashdown Mini Stack Query

    Yeah, fair point......! Just exploring options! Cheers!
  11. Ashdown Mini Stack Query

    Cheers for the input Woodinblack Anyone else?
  12. Ashdown Mini Stack Query

    (My first post on the revamped site! WHOOP WHOOP!) Hi I know this is HIGHLY subjective, but would a Perfect 10 Mini Stack hold up in a pretty loud practice situation (I am playing in a 4 piece, competing with a fairly loud drummer, a Laney Linebacker 100 and Hughes and Kettner 40.....not too sure on crankage) I am interested in this for portability's sake......(2nd floor flat, and no lift) and will be a practice only rig......got a MAG250 210/115 rig for gigs! Cheers!
  13. Steam punk bass anyone?

    Coupled to the fact it is actually a leftie bass, flipped (hence the 'reversed' P pickup)......with a load of ironwork welded to the front in order to cover the control cavity. Also note the 'control canister' to avoid any routing......and 'ducting' from the controls to pickup for wiring.......!
  14. After a lengthy sabbatical it is time to dust off the gigging rig (Ashdown MAG250 210 Combo) and by extension, the Extension Cab......a MAG 115 Deep II (been using a GK Backline 112 for practice as it is slightly easier to hump up two flights of stairs to the flat....) Anyway, since I last used the full rig, I seem to have lost the speaker cable......(I know I can't just use an instrument cable....as my father suggested......!) I was given the lead by a friend as he had spares and didn't need it, it was a simple 1/4" Plug/Plug, cable (can't remember the make....), and a straight replacement would obviously work just fine...... However....the Extension Cab also has a Speakon port....so..... - Is it worth me getting a Jack/Speakon lead? - If so, do I want a 2 or a 4 Pole Connector....? - What brands should I look for/avoid, obvs I don't need a Besoke, Boutique, Unobtainium coated super lead......but would like to avoid something made of tin foil and string.....! Sorry if these are pretty silly questions, just want to get the right kit.....!
  15. Case and Stand for Epi Flying V

    Cheers! Another side note......this would be my first bass that isn't full scale.....so was wondering.....would I need special midget strings.....or would my usual Super Slinkys work.....? (sorry if that is a silly question.....!) Sam
