  1. I'd like to do the same but with another combo acting as a cab. I've a 4 Ohm speaker in the combo and would like to use this without any invasive electricians work. For example speaker cable from cab jack on combo A into (say Effects Recv by passing the amp of) combo B. Could it work? OP sounds like you're best off getting a combo with a line out to a cab.
  2. [quote name='Chienmortbb' timestamp='1480892933' post='3187955'] The problem is that your amp is putting DC through to your speaker as the power supply collapses. It may or may not be a fault and probably won't hurt your speaker but it is not nice. [/quote] Thanks for the explanation. Is this a common thing with combos?
  3. Astonishing! I've been a huge fan of JC since his first vids. He writes everything out too - would be cool to know what he thinks of June Lee's world class transcribing.
  4. [quote name='Twincam' timestamp='1480625799' post='3186008'] Tube? Nope its all transistor. Its probable best to get it serviced. It could be it has some capacitors that stops that thump or at least dampen it that need changing. [/quote] Thanks Twincam. As it was so old I thought out was tube, as I'd not peeked inside and I couldn't find the spec online for it. Before I take it to a specialist, if it was something fixable by a layman, then I'd give it a go.
  5. I've had a few over the years (except Bose due to cost) from Sony to lesser known. The best one I have found is the superb [url="http://www.plantronics.com/us/product/backbeat-pro"]Plantronics BackBeat Pro[/url] [cost me about 150 GBP] The build quality, features and noise cancelling are very good. Excellent bluetooth, rechargable battery life (over micro-USB). Neat feature is that when you lift one earphone to talk to someone, the headphones send a signal over bluetooth to pause the audio (YouTube or music app), then restarts automatically when you replace on your ear. Very neat.
  6. [quote name='timmo' timestamp='1480626673' post='3186014'] Why not cities? Some are smaller than towns. Gloucester is a city and quite small. The music scene is pretty dire mind [/quote] You're right, Brighton is also city but in my mind is a big town, which is perfectly fine too. I'm trying to avoid obvious big cities like London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool etc....which have music scenes. More to find out surprisingly intense, vibrant or large scenes compared to the size of the town/city/area. Thanks for the ideas so far!
  7. Hi, Thinking of relocating in the future to a town where there's a lot of live music, musicians and bands. I realise it's all relative and I'm not looking for proof/data etc, just what people feel are towns with a lot of music. The North West music scene looks really lively (I landed on nwb.co by chance today) and it got me thinking - where are there loads of musicians and people who love going to gigs? The more places the better! :-)
  8. Hi, I've an old tube Traynor Bloc 80B bass combo, that, after I turn every knob down to zero, then turn the power off (there is a switch at the back or at the mains) - there is a very loud short sharp sound through the speaker like a crack or snap that makes my band mates jump. The volume is like I was playing it at half-volume. It's done it for years, but I'm using it more at rehearsals and I just want to get it sorted. Any ideas?
  9. Thanks guys, appreciate it. With the octaver now and compression, I'm close.
  10. Didn't know which forum to post this "need tone/sound" question to here, so if you know just say and I'll move it or post similar ones there in future - cheers! It's one of the songs I've been given to learn for a covers band I'm auditioning for and I've been trying took figure out the bass tone without success. I can hear a lot of compression and stones kind of vibrating growl. Anyone got close? Would really appreciate hearing how you did it! I've only got live recordings of YouTube like this to go on. https://youtu.be/4WkCj5gsHxc
  11. Got given tickets last night for Lionel Richie, JLo and Chic (!). Discovered this morning that Incognito and Light of the World ("London Town" seminal track for me) are also playing! Can't wait, its on in 4 hours. [url="http://www.bst-hydepark.com/events/detail/lionel-richie-jennifer-lopez"]http://www.bst-hydepark.com/events/detail/lionel-richie-jennifer-lopez[/url]
  12. Can also highly recommend Tom Kenrick in West London who I studied with a while back. Great lessons tailored to suit goals.

  14. There's the SITSOM book +2wheeler mentioned and I think there's at least one transcription that has been written and posted by a bass player on the open internet.
