    Lol!! I know,all 3 from you! You're my pusherman 😂 they sound fantastic though. Trying to decide whether to use the Scrutator in LP or BP mode! I quite liked the BP setting as its cleaner and I'm getting plenty bottom from the T65.

    Well after many months of tweaking and buying and selling I'm very happy with my current setup in the following signal chain! MXR Bass Envelope Filter 3 Leaf Pwnzor compressor Iron Ether Subterranea Cog Custom T65 octave (with the following in its loop, in order to run the octave in parallel) Iron Ether Oxide fuzz Malekko Scrutator (bit/sample/filter) Mooer Sweeper Then into! Cog Custom Grand Tarkin Fuzz Source Audio Manta Filter MXR Bass Chorus Deluxe MXR EVH Phase 90 TC Iron Curtain Noise gate Plenty of synthy goodness and all powered with a Cioks Dc5 😁 For once in not gassing too much for anything else! (Nose getting bigger)

    Gallien Krueger 1001rb with 210rbh cab

    I had the head for a while and was incredibly impressed with the tone! It does everything from clean dizzy HiFi to growly rock and tons of power!! I only got rid as i was worried it may blow my berg (2×10) cab! (I went back to EBS but I miss the GK power) the price for that and the cab is fantastic, but the online consensus is that head is best used with 2x 4x10s. I loved it and would have one again 😁

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    Nice!!! I definately see a custom tort guard and an East uni pre in my yamahas future! Strangely for me, I've not had a desire to muck about with the pickups!! Hmm Nordstrand blades???

    Five-string PJ suggestions

    I've just taken delivery of a Yamaha BB1025X! And it's an absolutely fantastic bass. I've owned lots of really expensive boutique 5 strings over the years costing three/four times what I paid for the Yammy,and it's on par with most of them! Fantastic neck. Luckily there's one for sale on the Facebook bass forums! (I think the guy may have it up on here too)
  12. Hi Gents Well I got an MXR BEF yesterday and i absolutely love it! MASSIVE!!! Problem though! When i had my Discumbobulator it made a constant high pitched whistling noise when placed near my CIOKS D5 power supply! I moved it and it was fine. I had a reshuffle and moved it and it started whistling again, but this time wherever I put it. In my frustration I sold it (when I plugged it in off board through a one spot the problem went away) well the MXR does the same thing argh!! 😠 I've spent all evening putting it on different parts of the board as far away from the cioks as i can/powering it on its own with one isolated power lead and it still whistles!!! I took it off board but powered it with a lead from the cioks (which was powering other pedals) and the whistling stopped!! Only the analogue filters do this! I've had no bother with my (Digital) Manta (which is powered on a different power outlet I've completely broken up my board now, to test every lead/other pedal etc to try and isolate the problem,as I really don't want to lose this filter. My leads are high quality van Damme/sommer with Hicon jacks, but I'm wondering if a cables gone but only the analogue filters pick up the noise. If anyone has any ideas I'd love to know!! Cheers 😁
  13. Hmm I wonder if these would work on a 34" with strings through body 🤔

    SOLD - Vantage VP710B Japan 1980

    My first bass (Well second) was the single pickup version of this! It was fantastic and i believe the pickups are dimarzios they certainly look like them! I'd be tempted for nostalgias sake,i replaced my Vantage with an Ibanez musician 😁

    EHX Bass Mono Synth

    I saw this yesterday and I'm definately interested! Some of the sounds I'm hearing arn't a million miles away from the Deep Impact I borrowed! And at half the price of a used Future Impact. I think mixed with other pedals this could be very cool if it tracks well.

    Improving a Sadowsky’s tone

    Hi Luke Do you have a number/email for the bass Doc? Ive known him for years but ive not got his number anymore. I did message him about 6 years ago on basschat asking him to make me a guard, and I'm still waiting on an answer 😂😂😂 Ive got a black Yamaha BB that your pics have inspired me to get a tort guard for 😁

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    @CameronJ Ahh i hadn't thought of those!! TBH I did try their nickel and steel roundwounds as i was really hoping they could replace the DR's I've been using for the last 20 years (not one set for 20 years 😂) as DR are stupid money and the quality has definately gone down (that's for another thread) Anyway i hated the steels and thought the nickels sounded ok! But the feel was spot on! Are the Dunlop flats low tension and nice and bright?

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    I did mate! It's going to a pro player buddy of mine,who will give it a lot more use than i do these days 😂 Ive actually still got the Mendel as the buyer is a fellow Geordie,and as im popping home in a couple of weeks I'm delivering it to his mum,while he's in Dubai! I've cased it up and won't touch it,in case buyers remorse sets in 😉 The yammy has fender flats on which I've always found to be very bland so im looking to get some Chromes or id like to try the Ernie Ball Cobalt flats but both brands are over £60 a set!!! Ouch! That's a nice day out with the kids!

    Is it worth me trying to sell to you guys in UK?

    I sold a twin pickup stingray 5 in immaculate condition in a stunning honeyburst colour for £950 a year ago! and it took nearly 12 months from posting to sell 🤤

    My new baby!!
  22. Very exciting indeed!! So would this be an evolution of the Manta? Or is there more again under the hood? I'm sure there is a seperate octave/harmoniser in the works too, it's going to be an expensive year 😁
  23. Very cool!! A bit to massive for my board though!
