  1. Hmmm, an Ashdown CTM 30 through an Ampeg 410he, giggable for small/medium pub gigs with no PA support?

      If you don't mind it being gritty it may do the job. You probably want more like a 50w amp to not sweat about it though. T

      I found both the Original 60 and 50s very comfy. If I hadn't been comparing the OR60s to a Custom Shop 59 in my preferred Fiesta Red at the time, I would definitely have been taking it home instead of the CS! Great, great feeling basses, I hope they stay around in the Fender lineup for a long time to come!

      I think they're awesome, totally dig the huge necks on them, right up my street in credentials for a top P bass...

  4. I've decided to get myself a good high-end microphone to suit a number of different applications (various acoustic instruments, guitar and bass cabinets, vocals), since one (1) is all I can justify at the moment. I'm torn between a KM84 and a U87 (clone). The KM84 sounds incredibly sweet and natural on acoustic instruments, but I haven't heard it being used for vocals or cab miking. The U87 sounds great for everything and more versatile thanks to the pattern switch, but perhaps not QUITE as sweet as the KM84 in certain applications. Does anyone here have any experiences with the KM84 as a vocal or cab mic? Then there's also the KMS84, which might just be the better option, IF it does indeed sound just like the KM when the windscreen is removed.

      @ZilchWoolham, I’m assuming/hoping you mean a clone in the nature of the Warm Audio stuff, or Peluso? Otherwise, maybe you are better off with the KM84 etc.

      I would go with the U87, no question. It’s an industry standard, and in most situations a great vocal is going to be more important than and great acoustic sound, particularly bearing in mind where those are going to sit relative to each other in the mix. Whilst it may not be the right mic for every vocal, of course, it’s going to work for a lot of them. The U87 sounds great to good on most sources and a LDC is going it give you far more options for use than the KM. Head straight for that clone, Sir!
