  1. Just trying to work out how to send you a PM on mobile. Hang on…
  2. How's the neck on this? I thought I was an all-out Jazz guy but I played a P the other day and think maybe my hands have sufficiently adapted to bass that I can cope with a P now…
  3. Interesting. So you reckon the higher wattage is likely to solve this issue, even if going into an 8ohm cab?
  4. Cheers, althoughI have actually given this a go (well, running into the top of two 8s stacked up as my amp only has one speaker out and these couldn’t be daisy-chained) and there wasn’t much of an improvement – a lot of the heft I get through 4ohms just seemed to be missing. (Additionally, I’ve had pretty decent results from a single, lower-down 4ohm cab.) I assume it’s something to do with headroom, but I’m still fairly new to anything that isn’t a massive valve guitar amp.
  5. Hi all, it’s been a while. Since my return to bass about a year and a half ago, I’ve been playing gigs pretty regularly and a recurring issue has come up. Generally the shows we play we’re sharing backline and just taking our own instruments, plus heads and breakies. I’m using a Aguilar Tone Hammer 350, and for the most part, I’m loving it. The only problem I’m having is that it sounds noticeably worse going into a 8ohm cab than a 4ohm one (presumably to do with it only outputting half the wattage into 8th). Since I don’t have much control over what cab I end up using, I wonder if a potential solution would be picking myself up an extra 8ohm cab i can take with me to shows and daisy-chain it in along with the “house” cab if it need to make things up to 4 ohms. Since most 8ohm cabs I encounter tend to be short, this would have the added advantage of giving me something coming out of a speaker closer to head height. First up, is this a sensible solution, or have I overlooked some issue with it/a better and easier way of solving the problem? Second, if yes to the above, then what cabs should I be looking at? The smaller, lighter and more portable the better, really – ideally, something I can carry one-handed. Genre-wise, it’s a stoner/desert rock kind of vibe; Jazz Bass through a Bass Muff, into the amp, so ideally, something well-suited to that. Cheers.
  6. Does anyone know of anything similar to this, but with a pocket big enough for my amp (Tonehammer 350)? I'm in the market for a new case/bag but would prefer not to have to lug the amp separately.
  7. Just received the Flea Jazz I bought off Iain. Great communication, absolutely no hassle; all went smoothly and quickly. Smashing. Oh and the packaging was a particularly impressive job, too.
  8. Very tempted by this. Is the only Flea-branded bit on these the neck plate? Love the look of these but am noooooo a RHCP fan.
  9. Where are you based? I like the look of this chap; wouldn't mind giving it a go.
  10. Where are you based? I'm extremely tempted to have a go on this.
  11. [quote name='machinehead' timestamp='1497642052' post='3319786'] I have the Reidmar 750 and it's a beast of an amp. Tone and volume in spades. So, even though I haven't heard a 500, for the price, I reckon they must be a super-bargain. They don't have the "drive" knob that's on the 750 though if that's important to you. Also, Thomann have the old version, the Reidmar 470, for £388. These have a reputation for being more powerful than the figures suggest. Worth a punt if you're on a tight budget? Frank. [/quote] Cheers man! Not too worried about the Drive, as I'm planning to run a Bass Muff in front, so this might be worth having a crack at!
  12. What do people reckon to the EBS Reidmar 500? Seems quite reasonable for what you get.
  13. [quote name='Lozz196' timestamp='1497612261' post='3319468'] I had the TH350, if used with gain/drive it`s plenty powerful but if you clean it up then against a loud drummer and Marshall half-stacks it does have to fight a bit. [/quote] I'm not too concerned about staying super-clean (I'll be using a Bass Muff in front of the amp) so maybe this is worth a punt.
