  1. I have a 57 re issue precision strung with la Bellas 52 /110  hi tension

    a standard mex precision strung with Thomastik 43/100 low tension

    both are fine for me , i love the la bellas &  thomastiks, but they are expensive.

    i would say The marusczyk flats are  somewhere in between the two  for tension.

    and sound pretty good to me , i havent used them live yet as only had them a couple of days

    well worth a try at thier price point.


  2. Recieved my strings today

    yes they do have black silks, the silks do clear the nut on my fender 51 p bass with through body stringing

    il leave the neck to settle and do a set up later , as the la bellas i had were much higher tension so il have to adjust the truss rod etc. il post my opinion in a couple of days when ive had a chance to try them out.

  3. Saw These Marusczyk flatwound strings  on bass direct website for£22

    has anyone tried them ?

    https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MARUSZCZYK_Strings.html

    i have ordered a set to try on my Fender 51 p bass with through body stringing, i currently have a set of la bella 52/110 flats on it

    but want to try a slightly lighter guage . my other p bass has a set of thomastik flats on which are great  but at half the cost of the thomastiks

    i thought i would try the Marusczyk's

    i let you know  my opinion when i have tried them.

    COMPRESSORE is a state-of-the-art compression tool that allows you to control gain, threshold, ratio, attack and release. The pedal also true bypass, which means that when the compressor is ‘off’, your signal goes directly from the input jack to the output jack without any degradation of audio quality.

  10. Thinking of getting one of these in order to downsize my set up

    itl do away with my amp speaker cab and pedalboard

    this seems to be a all in one everything included combo

    anyone tried the stage 800 combo , ive tried the rumble 500 and it does a good job

    its realy the presets and different effects etc that im not sure about, there are some great reviews and demos on youtube

    but would prefer some 1st hand knowledge befor splashing out on one

    regards

  11. Just bought one of these basses in the wild cherry finish, realy impressed with the quality of the finish

    the hardware is also good quality . i re strung it with thomastik flat wound shortscale strings

    and it plays a sounds great .i have tried the Gibson midtown , and warwick star bass .the Hagstrom is superior to both in terms of sound and playability. so if your looking for a versatile  semi acoustic this is a great option.

    mine has a similar serial starting G16 i believe its a 2016 made in China

    ps. just about fits in my hofner verythin case , the machine head shafts are slightly longer but it just squezzes in.

    GLWTS

    regards

    Not used the combo but my terror 1000w head isn’t great at doing clean. I swapped out the valves to get a bit more clean head room which gives a bit more flexibility but I wouldn’t be looking at one if a clean sound was the main buying criteria. I love the sound personally and it works for my band but it’s not the most adjustable sound wise.

    Hi Thanks to everyone for all the help

    what and how many vaives does it have ?

    is it just 2 pre amp valves?

    What sort of cost is it to change them
