  1. Just wondering how many others insure their equipment? I've got a couple of custom basses in my arsenal now which I want to look after. Any reputable companies out there? Thanks
  2. You won't be disappointed mate. Love mine. Rich lows and crystal clear highs
  3. I went 3 times to an audiologist for my UE6s and every time they were rejected as they weren't quite right. I ended up biting the bullet and driving to IEM Company in Hertfordshire to get them sorted. Perfect fit from the start.
  4. @EBS_freak Hope you don't mind but I'm looking for advice for our Vocalist who's now transitioning to IEM. She definitely wants to be wireless and I'm looking for a decent transmitter... They use Shure GLXD Wireless Mics and I've seen that they do a similar model for IEM. Would this be a good choice?
  5. @EBS_freak Just wondered your thoughts are on Empire ears? Some of our band have been recommended these... https://www.selfridges.com/GB/en/cat/empire-ears-bravado-ii-in-ear-monitors_R03772405/ They're universal so I wondered if something like the UE5s / UE7s would be better for vocalists?
  6. Thanks I can use a spare amp. Would there be any loss in sound quality doing it this way?
  7. Long story short my Behringer Powerplay headphone jack is broken and I'm wondering if I can use the line out left/right with an adaptor cable? See photos attached... Thanks
  8. I think you're right and our current rig sounds great (732as + 8003 AS Sub) however as I've said we're now facing a transport issue which means we'll only be able to take tops with us...So either RCF 735s/745s or the new 935s/945's to put the whole band through.
  9. Anyone know if there's a big jump between the 735s and 745s?
  10. I think for us we'll struggle to transport even the evox 12s. I think it will be either 935s or a pair of 745s without subs which seem to pop up from time to time.
  11. The Evox 12 looks lovely. Pricey though!
  12. My wedding band are all electronic now with iem & electric kit...no backline. We're currently using 2 x RCF 732a tops and 1 x RCF 8003 II sub. Unfortunately transport is getting tight and we need to ditch the sub and run everything through the tops. Been looking at the new RCF 935's. Think that would be decent for weddings/functions as stand alones? Thanks
  13. Translucent Sonic Blue w/ tort & Chrome vs Translucent Red w/ white, black/gold I'm leaning towards the blue finish as I think it's more unique. Or is that red just too good?! Going to be gloss finish with birdseye-maple and dots + matching headstock
  14. Now decided to go for some PJ pickups in my 5 string order In terms of tone I'm not keen on anything too bright or harsh but solid lowend/mids with plenty of punch - modern as oppose to vintage (hopefully that makes sense). Although subjective I'll want something that can do a decent Slap tone too. I'll have a pre. Probably either an East or Bartolini. Been looking at Bart, Delano, Aguilar, Linda Fralin pickups but never owned a PJ so any advice welcomed. Thanks 😃
  15. Thanks. Any pups you'd recommend with them or are they a good all rounder?
  16. @SibobThanks for the recommendation..I've definitely had a good look at the Barts! How do you like that combo? Think I'll be looking at the HR/918 pre 🐵
  17. Looking for some advice on new pre and pups in my new custom order 5 string. I already have a JJ bass so I'm after something a bit different - PJ / Soapbars perhaps? In terms of tone I definitely prefer modern over vintage and like lots growl and punch in the mids. I don't play metal or heavy rock but most other genres. Been looking at Bartolini, Glockenlang and East Uni Pre. Needs to be a 5 pot pre for the bass I'm getting as there's no control plate. Aguilar, Delano, Bartolini Nordstrand Pups. Any advice would be great to hear 😁
  18. Was using steel version. Used to like them on my Warwick but they don't feel right on my 35 scale jazz.
  19. Interesting I'll check them out. What makes you prefer them to Sunbeams?
  20. Looking at nickel strings for my 5 string Jazz. I used to love Dr lo riders but after putting them on my new 35 scale they feel too rough and tight. Much preferred the nickels that came with it originally..... Looking at DR Sunbeams and Nickel D'addario. Has anyone tried both sets? What did you think? I play function tunes so a mixture of 60s - present day 😁
  21. We use Behringer P16s and have one each. Also works very well at having individual control of each channel. Not sure if you already have the PM1..
  22. Just wondering if anyone has tried out this combination out before on an Overwater? Looking for something different on my 2nd Contemporary Jazz build as oppose to JJ pickups.
  23. Thanks...Have you had enough experience with EMG/Barts to describe differences?
  24. Looking at adding PJ pickups to my 5 string custom bass. I play in a function band so music from 60s-present day. I like having both pickups wide open most of the time and definitely prefer a more modern sound to vintage. Only thing is I'd rather not have exposed poll pieces from an asthetics point of view. That probably limits my options but would much prefer it this way. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
