  1. Seen / played this. It’s fab. Great condition and playability. As for the light show it is indeed very impressive! Even if you don’t go for the full on audio / visual extravaganza you still have the option of top and / or side LED’s.
  2. It’s a great cab and works fab as a stand-alone. It’s very quick / sensitive and responsive to eq - especially mids.
  3. This looks like my old cab. I only just sold it - It’s changed hands quickly! It’s a great cab. Changed my perception of what a 15 can do. It’s actually a prototype H115 and one of the first in the UK.
  4. Thanks - will check the East out. I have a love hate thing with Stingrays. Love the look, playability and build quality but the eq / preamps I've never been 100% on. This is my second Classic and I knew I wouldn't get on with the preamp. Just too much extreme low end and high boost that isn't really usable (at least for me) and I like my mids!
  5. GK RB1001's have serious grunt. I had one for years and sounded fab through an Epifani UL310. Two 2x10's is also a good option. One for smaller gigs and both for bigger. More flexible and easier to hump than a 4x10. As long as you don't drive the amp too hard one will be fine. I would echo the previous comments about maxing the bass on your Stingray. They have a big boost in low end and can easily make the amp or cab clip (although in my experience the RB had a pretty robust front end).
  6. Any suggestions to upgrade a SR Classic 5 preamp? Ideally no mods so would need to fit in the existing cavity (I've not looked yet but I'm guessing it will be tight) and be a three pot config (e.g. stacked treble n bass and mid + vol). Obvious choice would be an Aguilar OBP3 but I'm not sure it would fit. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this. Cheers.
  7. Not weighed it but its definitely north of 10lbs. Got a wide padded strap but its still a struggle for a whole set. If they're all 10lb+ I wont be getting a fretted!
  8. Not been on here for years so apologies if this has already been discussed but what is the general view of the weight of these? I recently bought a Fretless 5 (swamp ash). Great tone and playability but blimey its heavy! Not an issue as I'll only be using on the odd track / session but I was thinking of pulling the trigger on a fretted 5 and that will get more use. Has anyone else had issues with the weight of these or is mine a one off? Also, will an Alder one likely to be lighter than swamp ash?
  9. Thought I'd give a quick heads up on the H115 as I've been using one extensively for a few months now. Its probably one of the best cabs I've ever had, It was originally one of the demonstrators and WoT kindly helped out when I needed a cab. I liked it so much I bought it. Tommy was great to deal with and mailed me a new grille and badge (and even screws) as the ones on the demonstrator were not up to scratch as it is a prototype. So what about the cab. Well its rated at 450w / 8 ohm. Very light (surprisingly so) and an easy one hand carry, Its a great shape / footprint and fits perfectly in my Golf. Its a great sounding cab on its own and changed my views on 15's. It has a big sound but it is very tight and focussed. Mine has a horn and sounds great slapped and is fast and responsive. I've used it in a few different blues, rock, funk and function bands with a range of heads and always had positive feedback on the tone - and its never broken sweat. The thing that stands out for me is its responsiveness to eq - especially mids, which can really cut through the mix if you want them to. I've changed my view on 15's because of this cab. I use it regularly on its own but sounds immense paired with my Aguilar GS112 (which because of the H115's shape it places the top cab at a great height), Its a shame this one is being discontinued in favour of the smaller version. If anyone is interested in one you might also want to check with WoT and Conan who have both also used it.
