    Advice please

    So this turned up this morning. First impressions are very good. Seems to do everything I need 😎

    Advice please

    So after much procrastination I’ve pulled the trigger on a Valeton Bass Dapper, largely based on our own Dood’s online review. Looks like it’ll do pretty much everything I need in a small form factor unit with the added benefit of a ‘flyrig’ style preamp.

    Advice please

    First a confession, I’ve never been much of an effects user. But like many, I’ve been faffing around with recording during lockdown and realise that there is space in my life for a bit of chorus, octave, and maybe even a bit of filter squelch. So my question is am I better collecting a few individual pedals or is there a modern multi-effect pedal that will do this without a tonne of background hiss (my only experience of multi effects was an early Zoom 501)? I’m not thinking Helix expense but open to other ideas.
  4. Hi Andy, I'm a bit of a novice in the double bass field but would a Headway EDB-2 not do everything you want?

  6. For bass in GarageBand I just go straight into my iPad from my iRig HD2, select the Clean DI which is basically a clone of the Avalon U5, click the tone to 3 and away you go.
  7. My first bass too. Wrapped mine in black sticky backed plastic from Woolworths and covered the scratch plate in tin foil. GLWTS I'd buy it for nostalgias sake but the missus would kill me.
  8. I'm not much of a reviewer, but I've had mine for about a year used exclusively as a headphone amp at the weekday 'home' in Holland. However, I brought it home to the UK with me when I retreated to lockdown two weeks ago, and I've been using it as an interface for recording into GarageBand (first time for me). First thing I'd say is this doesn't have the 'baked in' Ashdown sound. I has a good range of tones available from the bass + mids + treble eq's and it handles my five-string basses very well with no clipping on an enthusiastically strummed low B. Plugging your phone or music player in via the 3.5mm jack makes it an effective practice tool for those late night stadium gigs. I've not had chance to check the line out but everything else works as it should and I assume this will too. Recording into GarageBand via the micro-USB output, I'm getting a bit fat tone that growls like a growly thing with a little bit of added mids. The unit is well made, with a metal case and metal jack sockets for the instrument in, line in, line out, and headphone out. Looks like it will survive life on the road for a good few years.
  9. And this ladies and gentlemen, is the definition of addiction 😮😉😂
  10. What a cool setup! I’ve always loved the PJB stuff and will own another briefcase one day soon. Hope you don’t mind me saying but that photo has a whiff of Spinal Taps Stonehenge about it 😂

  12. Guess it depends how you route your tuner. I much prefer a mute on the amp.
  13. Looks good, but no mute? When will manufacturers learn this is essential on a gigging amp.
  14. Now sold to our very own Bassman Sam 😎
