  1. That explains the controls very well. I absolutely love the slight sag you get when cranking the gain up to about 7 and adjusting the master to taste, especially with a Precision, warm and punchy... fabulous wee amps these!
  2. Good thread... I've lost count of the number of times I've taken my rounds off and re strung my P bass with flats only to change back again after a couple of weeks... maybe its down to technique and gear to a certain extent, certainly in the right hands a P with flats can sound glorious but I think in a live setting (mostly noisy pubs in my case) I still need to hear a bit of bark in my tone to help me to cut through the mix and I only seem to get that with rounds... DR High Beams have been my round of choice for up on 20 years, they last for ages and to my ears sound even better as they get played in... obviously there comes a point when the need changing but I get ages out of a set 🙂
  3. Sorry for a slight derail from the original topic but wondering of any Ashdown users/fans have tried the RM 410 Evo II super lightweight 4x10 cab yet? I cant find very much about it anywhere on the web... 21kg is a very manageable weight for a 4x10 and the price isn't bad either... I'm sure it probably sounds great but it would be nice to hear some real world feedback 🙂
  4. Happy days.. I find the little fitted bag very handy, in fact I leave the amp sitting in and just open the flap fully down behind the cab for cables etc... it never budges during gigs 🙂
  5. Excellent congrats.. you wont be sorry!!
  6. I use the BB800 with a Supercompact and its a great versatile light weight rig for pretty much any genre 🙂
  7. That sounds like a really nice combination of head and cab to be fair... I'd be surprised if you find anything lacking there 🙂
  8. I concur with all the positive comments above... total workhorse, huge power on tap, warm, fat, punchy, easy to find a great tone for pretty much any genre... sounds great with any cab but particularly suits my Barefaced Supercompact... possibly a bit too dark if you are keen on really sheeny highs otherwise a fantastic little head
  9. I bought this very cute little short scale (29") fretless jazz on here earlier this year for using in an acoustic gig that never materialized and since I find myself needing a few bob due to other bass purchases I'm letting it go again. The bass is in great condition, the fretless conversion is excellent with very well fitted maple inserts, there are no dings or dongs and it plays very nicely, weighs only 3kg, balances perfectly and the replacement Alan Entwistle pickups sound great. Currently strung with newish Rotasound black tape wound strings so its got quite a woody bark to it. The original tort pickguard is included with the bass but I think it looks way cooler without it 😀 Overall if you fancy a nice cheap as chips short scale fretless for gigging or just noodling about on this is ideal... its also ia perfect travel instrument. Not pictured but I have a decent black leatherette gigbag that is fits into pretty snugly though its a tiny bit longer than the bass itself... Any other questions send me a PM... Oh and I'm in Ireland but I have the box and packing that it came to me in from the UK so shipping is fine, it will probably cost about 20 quid to ship to the UK 🙂 Body: Alder Neck: Maple Neck Profile: 'C Neck Lacquer: Matte Neck Construction: Bolt-on Nut width in mm: 39 Scale: Shortscale (inch): 29 Pickups: Alan Entwhistle JBXNīģŋ Hardware: Chrome Colour: Sunburst
  10. I think the BG208 plus a BC208 would make a lovey little stack, and I'm sure TC Electronic are hoping alot of existing BG208 owners will think the same... I dont own a BG208 but I'm thinking a pair of the new BC208's with any decent head should make a really cool and extremely portable light weight rig... at 150 quid a pop (at the moment) they wont break the bank either 🙂
  11. I own an love a Super Compact but reading rave reviews of the Two10 has me gassing for one now as I think it might be more what I'm after in the tone dept so kinda looking the opposite way to yourself đŸ˜¯
  12. Anyone on the forum using one or a pair of these yet? I've read a few positive reviews over on TB and on Thomann from recent buyers but I'd like to hear what Basschatters have to say? Price and weight both very attractive and I like 8's
  13. I've been looking at these for ages and would love one for busking.. the only thing putting me off is the price of the battery pack..â‚Ŧ200 for a battery seems excessive... its a 35v unit and I haven't been able to find a cheaper alternative... GSS seem to make very good gear though so I'm sure the quality is great
