  1. Sorry to hear that. I'd definitely try the Dimension C or TC electronics version next.
  2. This is in the manifesto for sure Thanks! This is a big one that I'm keeping in mind. The whole reason I've decided to do this is I want consistent tests. Thanks for your answers - I'll be asking all of you for feedback when I start getting them up. Be brutal.
  3. Only you can decide if you need something for a change of sound. A multi effects pedal could be perfect to begin experimenting with sounds; just remember that it's easy to confuse not liking the effect itself (For instance envelope filters) with that-pedal's-version of an envelope filter. I'd always recommend doing some digging into what effects - if any - are/were used by your favourite players or on your favourite songs. As a rule, I always go straight into the front of the amp. As far as filling out the sound, it depends if as a band you feel it needs filling out. The examples I always use of pulling that off nicely are Tim C in Rage and Chris Wolstenholme from Muse. They usually do so with careful use of distortion/fuzz.
  4. I do enjoy this. There's something to be said about getting to witness someone listening to something that moves them. When it's genuine.
  5. The guy gets to make a living doing what makes him happy. Can't say fairer than that
  6. Incredible pedal! GLWTS
  7. I'll take his facebook details if someone wouldn't mind
  8. Preeeeeetty sure most EHX are male, 9.6v.
  9. Plus, IIRC EHX pedals usually use a different kind of power connect
  10. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  11. Very cool, @Chiliwailer! That's the beauty of Stingray's you only need to order a new pickguard to change them up and nobody's the wiser.
  12. Practically, the bass I want doesn't exist without compromise in one, if not several areas. Also, work on the bass I have (Including buying it) is cheaper than having one built from scratch. Plus, most of the luthiers I found that could come anywhere close to the price only offer variations on one of their set designs - Not custom work. This is purely to see if anyone has done something else considered so sacrilegious, and to see how it turned out.
  13. There was definitely no other way around it. I spec'd up a bass design when I was 17 based on a Pedulla Rapture - I love that they're not a copy of any other design, have their own modern shape, with the fastest neck I've ever played. As they're as rare as rockinghorse-poo, I finally got one a few months ago (I'm 30 now). In that time some of the hardware I've wanted has stopped being made, started being made again, and is on a LONG back-order list. The only downside is the finish I was going to aim for (Olympic white + Tortoiseshell pickguard), I now have on a P-bass, so I'm not going to make any changes until I know how I want it to look as well, as it might as well all get done around the same time. I'll definitely be updating you folk on the forums, though!
