  1. Time for a update given it's been a while... no radical changes. Gone: MXR envelope filter and Boss tremolo. Replaced with: TC electronic Hall of Fame 2 and Old Blood Noise Endeavors Dark Star. Done some moving around of the pedals on the small board, everything is now more or less in chain order on this board. The Dark Star is a reverb with long trails and placed before modulation, it does some very nice things to the chorus, phaser, flanger, tremolo and vibe, somehow a more defined and detailed modulated sound. At the end of the chain the two reverbs behind each other can give a very nice deep roominess.
  2. Small shorty PJ update. I replaced the Seymour Duncan SPB-3 (Quarter Pound P) pickup with a SPB-1 (Vintage P). Never really liked the sound of the SPB-3, too harsh and too modern sounding also a way too high output, in the end not how I like a P pickup to sound, the combination with DiMarzio bridge pickup also didn't sound the way I had in mind. This SPB-1 sounds the way I want and works great in combination with the bridge pickup.
  3. Update: Removed the HoTone delays from the board and added a EarthQuakers Devices Dispatch Master. Rearanged the order of the echo effects.
  4. Finally after almost a year - a new update. Gone: tc electronic shimmer and chorus, rat clone, Mooer LoFi, tuner (I prefer clip-on tuners). Back: CKK tremolo, Chowny Fuzzster. New: MuTron Micro-Tron IV, Boss Multi Overtone. Moved some things around on the board, not in the chain.
  5. Another one that came by at a price I could not resist.
  6. Two that I made myself. And one I bought.
  7. Engineer/machinist, not retired. The drawing board is just a very handy tool, is primarily used as a extra table which can be flipped up.
  8. I do - Straight from the box it was a piece of junk! Click here to find what was needed to make it playable.
  9. Most of them are in one room, there are even more spread around my house.
  10. Dirt cheap at Thomann, 799 euro instead of 1499! Couldn't resist this one.
  11. It's still running on the first battery, I mounted the preamp three or four years ago but this is not my most used bass.
  12. More control over highs and lows which results in a more detailed definition of the humbuckers.
  13. Time for another update. Moved a few pedals around, removed the Joyo compressor, added a tc electronic 3RD Dimension chorus and reinstated the Boss tremolo instead of the CKK electronics tremolo. Yellow switch caps before and after the noise gate, the black ones are in the noise gate FX loop... Not really a necessary or useful update, done just because I can.😀
  14. When I wanted to make my 12 string I also ran into the problem that especially bridges for 12 strings are nearly non existent. However the Schaller 8 string bridge will accommodate 12 strings without any modifications! The beast. More Pictures of the finished result. Build diary in the build diaries section here on BassChat.

    Got wood?

    More of my wood basses, these are the ones I bought. Naked. A piece of wood that's a bit more special (sandblasted, way before Fender invented it!). Even though it's painted the grain is very clearly visible (and feel able). Wood underneath a burst or clear colour.
  16. There is way too much open space for such a nice pedalboard! 😉
  17. The preamp is a BTC control,. The pickups, jack and volume pots are still original, I also installed a internal trim pot because the pickups have a rather high output.
  18. Up till now it works flawless. All slots are used and the two variable outputs are being used at 12 V.

    Family Photos

    Afraid it's not the full family but it's most of them. Due to space restrictions some have to live in other rooms.😉
