  1. Just read the thread above this 'new joyo compressor' a mxr clone apparently, might be wort a look. I use the Spectrocomp (it's incorporated in my Spectradrive pedal) and it is an easy to use device and as said previously it is a doddle to change the toneprints.
  2. I must admit I've never come across that brand, sorry.
  3. While looking at the online suppliers there is a lot of kit on long delivery, everything from pedals to PA equipment.
  4. Until recently 3 of my short scales were strung with 50 - 110 gauge roundwound strings and they sounded spot on. 2 of these are ACG basses which came factory fitted with this gauge. I have now fitted the 2 pbass short scales with 40 - 90 gauge flats can hear and here a difference in the harmonic content, while the tension is similar to the roundwounds.
  5. With the Rotosounds give them a while to 'break in' especially the E and A strings (I have based this comment on my use of the short scale versions).
  6. Just bought a PA system off James. Excellent communication, product as described (probably better) and on top of that we were able to meet locally which saved me a drive down to Malvern/Worcester - much appreciated that. He is an excellent guy to deal with and an shining light for the Basschat community. Many thanks James.
  7. Would suggest going for short scale strings but people do utilise long scale ones. Long scale will likely mean you will be winding the thick section of string onto the tuner which can cause the winding to break.
  8. Purchased a Harley Benton Powerbank from Jack, nice easy transaction and great communication.
  9. Just off the cuff, would bike frame protection patches do the job? If you think they would then let me know what size patch you are looking for and I'll see what I have😁
  10. A nice solution to mains power. I have used the myvolts ripchord 5v to 9v converter which works well but these are costlier so it's nice to come across a lower priced option.
  11. You could look at the Headrush 108 and 112 8" and 12" frfr. They seem reasonably popular.
  12. I am happy to help, I live just outside Lichfield, Staffordshire so could cover anywhere from Coventry to Cheshire (Holmes Chapel'ish).
  13. You could also try Northwest Guitars site.
  14. If you employ a 15" sub in the PA system to handle bass and kick drum could you then drop the tops down to units with 8" drivers? The reason for the question is I have seen a System by Thomman with just this configuration. The sub is powered giving around 200w rms to each component.
  15. Being cheeky, if you are going to PMT then look at the HH powered 12" which they have at around £175 and also the same model in 15" at around £190. These have a 200w output (RMS) apparently. I'd be interested in your thoughts.
  16. Re pricing, the Studiomaster Drive 12 can be found for around £199 each which is £100 + per speaker less than the RCF's (which I was also looking at). They are rated at 310w RMS as well. Jack's comment was also one I considered, found a Gemini GX5000 power amp for around £180, and passive tops from whoever to suit (£99 upwards from Gear4Music and others).
  17. I wish you the very best of luck sir.
  18. I'm looking at a similar solution using Studiomaster 12" active PA speakers. Cannot think of why it would not work based on having put a bass through a single powered 12" before, and also miking up the bass skin on a set of drum flats for open mike nights through same, both worked successfully.
  19. I would have thought that as your daughter neeeeeeeeeeds a bass and the Farida is the only one in the house then your case for purchasing Karlfers P Bass has already been formed😁
  20. I had a similar problem that turned out to be a loose jack socket as Bunion suggested. Tightened it up and the cutting out and 'scratching' noise went away. The socket in question was the locking locking type mounted on the edge of the bass.
