  1. I Agree the Tonepump (non adjustable) output is on the high side - it's not 100% ideal...but I don't think it's such a big deal that many make it out to be. Of course, we can always turn down the volume pot to reduce the output. Another option is to lower the pickups. Also, another solution I've used is to have a pot between the pre amp and the output jack (enclosed in the cavity) and to adjust the output in this way. Think of it as an added manual trim pot.
  2. Squier Classic Vibe Precision 60’s - Fiesta red - 2013. £450 shipped Mainland UK - or safe socially distanced collection from Chorley Lancs is possible too. Squier Classic Vibe Precision 60’s. In great condition for the age, condition wise the only thing I believe worth mentioning is the screw holes for ashtrays. See photos near the bridge, with a slight witness mark from a bridge cover and also holes other side of the pickup from a pickup cover. Other than than it's nice and clean, well set up with medium low action.

  3. These are from the OEM designer and manufacturer of the Tonepump. Tonepumps in pedal format and a 3 band version: Michalík Designs (michalik.cz) Michalík Designs (michalik.cz) Also, the BP4, which depending on who you believe is a Tonepump under a different name, or a variation of. Michalík Designs (michalik.cz) Things to note from those links. EQ points are quoted as, Bass - 55Hz. Treble 6.5kHz. Note that is different from the clever / techie scopes I mention above at Bass at 70 Hz. and Treble 5 kHz. Note the gain is: - Bass +14db to -4 dB, so lets say a quarter of the way for flat. The Treble is quoted as +14db to -12 dB, so lets say a almost half of the travel on the pot for flat.
  4. No problem - reading that back I should clarify on the mids. The mids are actually pulled out (that is to say mins about 7 dB), this starts at around 600Hz with both pots fully off, both halfway moves the frequency to approx 400Hz (-7 dB) and both on full shifts the frequency to approx 300Hz (-7 dB).
  5. Bass is 70Hz. Treble 5 kHz The preamp is interactive between each pot. As you wind open the pre amp more - the Q on the Bass EQ increases too. Also, the mids change as the pre amp is opened up changing from around 600 Hz, to 300 Hz depending how much the bass and treble is opened up. Theres a few TB / FB discussions on this, and the clever guys have captured these EQ points through their scopes as clear as day.
  6. The Tonepump is a complex pre amp to my ears Flat setting, again to my ears, is around 2/10 on the bass pot and 4/10 on the treble pot. I hear the frequencies change as the pre amp is adjusted, especially when opened up. YMMV.
  7. TC Electronic K212 2 x 12 Bass Cabinet. £199 Collected Chorley, Lancs, UK - can ship for say £20. Good condition - The badge has been removed for a cleaner / sleeker look, this has left the 2 small holes in the cab.

The new K-212 bass cab from TC Electronic K Series continues to set a high standard for affordable, strongly built speakers with great sound quality. Designed to be mixed and matched the K series cabinets are perfect for the BH550 and BH800 TonePrint Amps. With 2 custom-made 12” drivers and a 1” ceramic tweeter they have genuinely amazing sound. Lightweight and strong. If you’ve ever had to move a bass amp you’ll know they weigh a ton. The K Series are designed to be lightweight while not compromising on tone. At only 23kg the K212 is up to half the weight of similar size units. Take some of the hassle out of your pre gig setup with a reliable lightweight cab. Built to Impress From the sturdy ply construction to the cool and clean vintage exterior this cab is sure to grab some attention. The hand-selected high quality custom drivers, developed with an unparalleled attention to tone, give both bright top end and thunderous, growling lows.

  8. Orange Bass Terror 1000 - £450 shipped Mainland UK. I can't decide on which I prefer between this and my Markbass TTE 801 so offering them both up and c'est la vie. Great overall condition, lightweight, small footprint. Useful 4 Ohm/8Ohm Switch on the back of the amp. This is one of the later models too, so has the revised DI circuit that addressed the high DI output on earlier models, so no worries on that score. Comes with the lovely handbag, just one small nick in the bag as pictured. Orange Page here: https://orangeamps.com/products/bass-guitar-amps/terror-bass-1000/

  10. i'd have to say I dont know - never used in that way, a couple of links here that may help though: SC-01 SC-02 Owner's Manual (yamaha.com) SessionCake - Overview - Amps & Accessories - Guitars, Basses & Amps - Musical Instruments - Products - Yamaha - UK and Ireland
  11. Yamaha Sessioncake x 2 (1 x SC01 1 x SC02) SC01 - £20 add £2 = £22 posted mainland UK SC02 - £28 add £2 = £30 posted mainland UK Bought these for band silent rehearsing during lockdown, but never been happened so never opened. The SC-02 allows you to connect with multiple players that can all hear each other. ... The SC-01 is not all that much different to the SC-02 — the only difference being that the SC-01 is aimed at guitar, bass or anything that uses a single jack input, whereas the SC-02 has a microphone XLR input and a stereo line input.
