  1. Open to offers, bought a few too many amps recently! Oops...
  2. Interesting (Ashdown content)

    Happily stood up to a big band today with the volume around half, through a Barefaced Super Midget. Warmth for days, loving this head!
  3. The Puth track is a keys part played into Spectrasonic’s Trillian Total Bass vst with their Hofner emulation used as the sound. It was then passed through the Waves CLA Bass Plug-in which has a very specific speaker emulation tone which gives it a lot of the character of its attack. It also has a very heavy compressor if desired and a sub (much the same as an Ashdown sub down) and chorus element to it. I find the fact that it’s so liked interesting, but I too totally dig it and it’s very much right for the track. I only have super specific knowledge in this one track as I emulated it in the production of a different track for a different artist as part of my masters, and the bass sound is so distinctive in adding timbral colour. On a note relevant to this thread: I’m loving my recent switch to Ashdown amps, and it’s totally the sound I was heading towards in my head - but it does need the flat button on the ABM-pre pushed in to get there!

  4. TC Electronic Blacksmith with RC4 Footswitch £750 £700 I’ve loved this amp and used it for many years with never a problem. It has more power than I’ve ever needed, I’ve played festival stages and dared not turn it up any louder than 12 o’clock. With my Barefaced BT2 it simply makes the house shake. Super versatile probably the best power to weight ratio amp out there. It has a coupe of dings which are photographed and I’ve replaced the knobs on it because the TC ones really are a lot of hassle. However, I’ve never asked for any replacements for this one, so you’d be very much entitled to a set from them of the free to replace the originals that were on it. It will also come with the RC4 footswitch which I find is an essential part of the setup (and much pricier than I had thought!) Collection preferred in either Maidenhead, Berkshire or Bath, Somerset, but I have it’s original box too so not a problem to ship it. Thank you for looking! T
  5. Fodera Yin Yang Standard - Price Drop

    Ears are open for offers! I was supposed to be having a cull, but currently have more gear than I ever have! 😂

    So... For the impatient amongst you I have a little video! It's just what i've been working on composing today, so not incredibly real-world for most players and just on an iPhone. However, plug in some headphones and you get an idea of some of the warmth and the cleans it produces. I will do some proper/more in depth but talk-free demos, as per the rest of my channel, later this week! T

    I think this could be the perfect head for that, I truly adore the clean, warm valve tone. The Feedback knob really helps get the tone to where I want it, I find.

    YouTube video will be on its way hopefully this week. TJS Bass is my channel, if you want to subscribe you’ll know straight away when it goes out, but I will of course put a link in here! However, intending to record a track today, so may have some clips from that I can post later! T

    I just smiled really nicely for an hour... Or something like that 😂
  10. Interesting (Ashdown content)

    I honestly couldn’t tell you as I’ve no experience with them... I’m a recent Ashdown and valve convert having recently picked up a BTA200 but realised I needed that tone but smaller for a lot of gigs. This is definitely voiced differently but I’m really in love with it, I do a lot of chordal stuff and with the drive kept down, it’s clarity is really beautiful! On the volume front, I was surprised at how loud it will go, even staying clean. It far exceeds my expectations of 30w! T
  11. Interesting (Ashdown content)

    It sounds rather good through one of these 😉
  12. Fodera Yin Yang Standard - Price Drop

    Sadly! Great basses though, but specifically after that 'working' jazz that doesn't frighten anyone before you've played the first note, unfortunately.
  13. Fodera Yin Yang Standard - Price Drop

    Really sorry to do this, but if you offer a trade, please could it be equipped with 5 strings, jazz bass pickups, and a jazz shaped body! (Or a 5 string jazz as it’s known! 😂) Mayones Jabbas are of particular interest as well as Overwater, Lakland, Sadowsky etc. I’ve had some lovely trade offers but if it’s not a jazz I’m going to have to decline sadly.

    Bump for price drop!
