  1. Get a 4 channel interface as a minimum. 2 channel interfaces are limited in terms of routing options. You then have various choices including Stereo output from desk into 2 channels of audio interface. Route a pair of outputs to a separate headphone mixer amp 2 channels independent of mixer desk to record vocals, guitar, bass, keys direct As you can see, the shopping list gets big pretty quickly...
  2. Bass into a sansamp bass fly rig and XLR out into Scarlett 2i2. Simple and effective. I mainly use built in compressor as it's good enough for most occasions, otherwise will use my mxr bass compressor. Only other piece of kit i may add is a parametric EQ to strip out a tight band around 1kHz. Been looking at the Sine Effects micro para for just this purpose.
  3. I reckon he's been told to sell it as 'it' s just sitting roumd gathering dust'. He doesn't want to, so he has priced it not to sell.
  4. Hi, would you be able yp send me the dimensions? Interested in them for my us deluxe jazz Thanks
  5. Are you sure volume isn't push/pull? I missed that minor detail on mine until I was changing the knobs.
  6. You got it for a good price. I won't tell you what I paid for mine 😉
  7. Nice example of one of the Philippines made basses on ebay for a reasonable price. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264794030902 I picked up a Bacchus 5er on a recent work trip to Japan. It's an excellent bass for the money. Will post a few pics on a separate thread.
  8. For those of us fortunate to be able to work from home, we've seen the change it has made to our lives. Less wasted travel time being the obvious one. Gigging is no different. Driving to a venue. Scrambling to find a parking place and pobably having to fork out loads for a parking meter. Hanging around waiting for the headline band to arrive so setup can start only their drummer/guitarist is late as always because it's rock and roll/he's an unprofessional silly billy (delete as appropriate). What's not to miss? Actually, I can't wait to get back to gigging and if you have any shows your band doesn't want, send them my way..
  9. Jon Taylor. Great player and probably the unofficial most popular member of the band with teenager girls. Steve Harris. Pretty much the creative force behind Iron Maiden's best years. DD Verni (Overkill). If you were a thrash/metal fan in the 80s, then the image of DD Verni, BC Rich widow bass slung low and that bass sound. Tony Butler (Big Country). Tony bouncing around onstage, Black precision and a huge grin. That's my memory of BC on TOTP
  10. Hi, I have a 2001 Fender US Deluxe Jazz V I bought in 2003. I really love the bass and have modded it over the years - Audere 3 band deluxe preamp, refinish. I love the bass and have used it on dozens of recording s and gigs. The issue I have is that the low B sounds weak. Acoustically, it sounds fine, but amplified, the B is much quiter and really weak. I have a 1997 US Deluxe V that doesn't have this issue. So, my hunch is it's the pickups. Certainly the pole pieces on the B are much lower. So, what options do I have? The pickups are miuch narrower than a typical 5 string set. DO I opt for a newer set of the Noiseless pickups (N3?) or something else? I play in a prog metal band, but I'm looking for the character of decent Jazz bass rather than loads of output or bottom end. Can always dial in a fatter sound (i.e. not sure quarter pounders are for me) Any recommendations gratefully received.
  11. Early teens. Metallica - One. Their first music video Landed when I was 13 and was the song that got me into thrash and metal. Late teens. Soundgarden. Outshined. Masters of Reality. Domino Danzig. Twist of Cain.
  12. Hi. where in Central London and could you do lunchtime or late afternoon collection? Saves me a weekend trip into town
  13. Andertons Music is selling a 2nd hand Carvin. Fretless 5. Unlined. For £399! Still on their website. I'd have been tempted if I didn't already own a Grendel/Stadium fretless 5.
  14. Purchased GK MB Fusion 500. Nice, friendly transaction. Item is in near mint condition. Thanks.
  15. Hi. Where in Belgium? Driving to Gent on Friday.
  16. Funny you should say that. Am currently watching this and working out how to get it to the UK https://www.ebay.com/itm/1989-Charvel-Fusion-V-5-string-bass-guitar-DARK-BLUE-Excellent-condition/202562833298?_mwBanner=1&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F0%2F0%2F0%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F202562833298%26rvr_id%3D0%26rvr_ts%3D53626f711680a88accc31b4effff30d1&ul_noapp=true&pageci=ee5a3adf-f21d-4813-84c9-472d3a40982e My first 'proper' bass back in 1992. I regret selling it, although it had been through a lot by time I moved it on.
