  1. Tricky one raffles. They are running it to benefit a registered charity so they should be ok. Fairly sure if it's run online they need to register with their local authority. Could easily be wrong though. Tempting to enter regardless.
  2. It's the old version of the American Standard Pickup, just called American Standard Pickup. I think they changed the Am Std P Bass pickups to the 62 version but kept the 'Am Std' pickup for the special run Mex basses (Classic 50, Roadworn, etc). I have the honey one, which like yours is fantastically light. So light I put resolite tuners on it so it balances better. That changed the tone a huge amount actually, much brighter, I have to roll off 1/4 turn of tone to get the pre tuner change tone. I also changed the pickup to the SD SPB1, but that's just to get a certain sound.
  3. I noticed that as well. Then again I already have a few options for those on my board, when I'm done travelling, so I probably shouldn't get greedy.
  4. I take it that's just for the B1on series pedals?
  5. I agree, it's 60 quid in most places now, so my order is going in this weekend.
  6. Actually I was just talking about the G1 when it comes to clean blends. I find a lot of guitar effects, especially drives will sound good on bass if they have a clean blend. Not so worried with the B1. I did also download both sets of manuals to check out the parameters. But basically I didn't like the sound of the G1 much at all, so that solved the problem.
  7. Bit of a scout round, most of the G1 effects don't have a clean blend, plus, I don't like how it sounds in the demos. Maybe I've been a bit spoilt with tube combos. But... the B1 sounds pretty good in the demos, so I think I'll go for that seeing as I'll be playing bass 80% of the time.
  8. Thanks, that's what I was thinking. I'll have to check out the G1 effects list to see if they have a clean blend.
  9. Thread resurrection! I'm going to be living out of a suitcase for a while and need a headphone amp. I'd like one box for both Guitar and Bass though. The B1 or G1 looks to be the best solution for the price. Can you load Guitar patches onto the B1-Four?
  10. I ran my guitar into my Walkabout (at home) for a while. It's sound could best be described as 'jazz guitar'. I assume Mr Homme is using ampeg valve amps but maybe not with bass cabs? Seems to be a lot more cross over with valve amps, with fender bassman, hiwatt and marshalls all being used for both.
  11. You are in exalted company, he trashed Faith No More as well. Absolute verbal diarrhea. http://www.pushstuff.co.uk/mmlives/faithnomore040688.html
  12. I'm no expert, but isnt that a non stienberger bridge and head piece? Also the fingerboard looks strange, shouldn't it be resin not rosewood?
  13. I didn't screen shot it, but I do remember the name, and can find his facebook page if the OP needs it.
  14. Seller seems to have removed it from sale plus an epihone rivoli he had up.
  15. Never seen the bass version in the flesh. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193724052913
  16. I'm probably getting confused about garageband, it's a while since I used it, it seemed to be a lot quicker than my pc method. I use ableton for audio and premiere for video. It all just seems over the top and slow for my needs. I'll take a look at davinci.
  17. Out of interest, what daw are you using for sound and video editing? I'd like to be able to record audio and video at the same time without endless syncing issues and cutting and pasting between daw and video editor. Garageband is the only one I've seen that does it quickly and easily but I dont have access to a decent mac.
  18. I reported the jazzmaster on that listing yesterday. Didn't check at the time to see the other listings. I'm surprised ebay took so long. Maybe they only investigate if they get several reports.
  19. I don't know if these ads are fake as such, but they are definitely outside Ebay rules so will be taken down soon. I assume it's a scam though. Clue is the the email address in the photos.
  20. It's gone one better than music man with a 7 bolt neck... On the plus side, it does have a schaller roller bridge on it.
  21. Just an update. I saw a Boss RC10R going for a good price and impulse purchased it... whoops. It turns out its actually just what I need, although probably the donner circle looper above would have worked too. Only had a quick play so far, but pretty intuitive and it will make a fantastic practice tool for guitar and bass.
  22. I was leaning towards the jamman stereo, quite like the layout and functions, but the rhythm track is really limited. For that matter the RC3 is quite limited too, but not quite as bad.
  23. Being a total looper newb I really want to start out with something reasonably cheap and simple without too much of a learning curve.
  24. I've been interested in those but was under the impression they weren't stereo ie you couldn't have a different instrument running out of each channel, it was more two outputs and bring while to send the rhythm track only to a mixer. It's that right?
