  1. I hasten to say that they sound brilliant as well as I played a couple at last year's bass show. The pickups are like flamethrowers.
  2. Oh come on. I'm sure there are plenty of people who would say "I don't get free stuff from guitar companies and I wouldn't have one!" Or some other nonsense. Am I not right in that Ashdown don't pay people to endorse their products? You actually have to buy them I believe. Kind of like Wal or Alembic, but noticeably unlike Hartke who would pay anyone to play their stuff. They're not something I'm bothered about as my needs are more than covered presently, but that's not to say they won't be good basses.
  3. None of this is anything new. Check out some of the virtual guitars by Musiclab. I used them on my solo album and nobody could tell the difference. Is that okay because it's a guitarist that got replaced? Besides, if you use the 8 string guitar, you can use it as a bass which you could have done years ago. I tried it out of curiosity and it's not bad. As with all these things, the detail is how much you're prepared to do to make it sound real. Yeah, play straight 8ths if you want U2, but I bet there's plenty more under the hood. If you're decent with midi editing and programming, you'll be fine. That's just to show you how easy it is to get something usable. Does anyone here actually object to Superior Drummer? Really?! As we all play bass here why would we ever need this software? Are folk complaining because it's "comin' over 'ere, takin' our jobs!" Really?!
  4. In the end I got a Lomenzo Hyperdrive. Meh! Meh! Meh! As much as I would have loved to get an original rpm or a retroglide, with funds the way they are and my studio stuff being vastly curtailed, it's about all I can swing really.
  5. Yeah. I always thought it was the done thing that the top of the pickguard should follow the contour of the upper horn. At least on fender type basses.
  6. In truth, I was thinking Retroglide. Then I realised most of my studio work has been shelved for as long as we're all in lockdown, so it might not be the best time to spend £500. Bummer....
  7. I was toying with a retroglide. Is it really 800W or are the specs rubbish?
  8. Funnily enough, that's pretty much my spec were I to ever get one. I'd go chrome and get the B2 circuit as I prefer the 2 band eq and Mids in my Buzzard rather than the 303 board. I'd never seen a stealth with roman numerals before though. Top work squire!!
  9. Honestly, if anyone wants a shot on mine, once all this lock down crap is over you're welcome to pop over to mine and try it out. It truly is the best pre-amp ever.
  10. What mod is that? Just curious.
  11. I run my own recording studio in South East London. Anybody need anything recorded or mixed and mastered? Prior to this, I was a civil servant for 17 years. I'm a pharmacologist by degree, but I haven't used that professionally for over 15 years.
  12. Whilst Gibson has been going downhill for some years it's really become quite noticeable the effects of the "Mickey Rooney's crazy pills," which the board members have been taking. Crushing instruments, sueing every smaller builder with a zeal that has to be seen to be believed. It's just monumental hubris. They deserve to fail and go bust.
  13. I hasten to say my comment was based on people not having the patience to sit down and fiddle. It takes a bit of time, but you can get some great sounds out of it. As a pedal it's great and I have used it to record on a few clients songs to great effect. The point I was making was that the Dug (to me at least) is more intuitive to use, but the Darkglass has a bigger feature set. As it should really as its about £150 dearer. I like to fiddle about with pedals so none of this bothers me. Some don't and they'd be frustrated.
  14. That was my point. Obviously the facetiousness didn't fully come over. It's not a big deal. Like, you've chosen a relic bass. This stuff can be easily fixed. Let's not start stocking up on Gaviscon as the solution has been clearly stated by Limelight and seems reasonable. Much like the barefaced handles nonsense a few years ago, now for 2020 we'll have #rustedlimelight as Basschat's new customer service issue.
  15. I got one for my studio. In direct comparison to the Tech21 Dug Pinnick I'm going to do a comparison because only by doing that will it make the review seem fair. The Dug has a fixed crossover so it should be the inferior pedal. It isn't. The Darkglass by having an adjustable low and high pass makes everything too fiddly. You'll get a wider variety of sounds, but it'll take you longer to find them. In itself it's a great pedal, but not the most intuitive thing. The EQ is great as is the adjustable cab sim. It honestly depends on how many sounds you need to get out of it as it does take a while.
