  1. Just seen this; sad, sad news. My VT2 Twin has not missed a gig in 10 years. Rest in peace, Dave.
  2. Looks good, but I'm still a fan of my Saw paint job
  3. [quote name='NancyJohnson' timestamp='1499700621' post='3333004'] I'd be interested in finding out if the unit can be run in mono or whether it requires a stereo poweramp. Anyone from Tech21 reading? [/quote] https://www.talkbass.com/threads/coming-soon-tech21-geddy-lee-signature-sansamp.1249586/page-9#post-20172331
  4. [quote name='Al Krow' timestamp='1498725273' post='3326535'] Cheers for that. Picking up on your final comment - is it just the battery that makes the PD "easier" or are there other features as well that make the DHA less user friendly / the PD more user friendly? (The battery point is not a particular concern for me as a I have Ciocks DC8 on my pedal board) [/quote] Yep, just the battery - the controls on the DHA are quite self explanatory. As for power, the PD would obviously be fine on your PSU but a [url="http://www.davehallamps.co.uk/VT1-EQ-Bass-Drive.pdf"]VT1[/url] needs 9-12v @ 600mA. E: - I am referring to the v1 PD, BTW - not tried the v2 (or the v2 BDDI). E II: - Just reread your OP - I think you should invest in getting one.
  5. [quote name='Al Krow' timestamp='1498675602' post='3326295'] Quite high praise if it's an always on pedal! Interested that you moved on the Paradriver but not VT2 - dunno if it's a fair Q, but how would you compare the two? [/quote] Valves sound better than valve emulation, but aren't really something you can chuck in yer gig bag. Dave had just released the VT2 and I had to have it, unfortunately at the expense of the PD. Add in the possibilities opened up by the gain stages of the VT2 and it's incredibly versatile, not to mention the kitchen drawer handle protecting the valves and the Saw paint job. Would I do the same again? No, I would get the VT2 and keep the PD, for the simplicity of those gigs where I don't need a pedalboard and chucking a pre and a tuner in a gig bag is the order of the day. Form vs function. VT2 is better, but PD is just easier. If Dave did ever make a battery valve pedal, I'd get it, if he doesn't, I'll get another PD 😃 /lotsofwords
  6. I've had a VT2 twin EQ bass years and I don't think I have ever turned it off. Blue channel on all the time, switch to red for more dirt. IMO, the Paradriver is a completely different animal to the BDDI and one of the few things I regret moving on. I'd like another just for the chuck in a gig bag simplicity.
  7. [quote name='Paulhauser' timestamp='1498412950' post='3324399'] I think Spector does it right on this one [url="http://s1277.photobucket.com/user/palpurnhauser/media/spector%20ns-2p_zpsft4rpywi.jpg.html"][/url] [/quote] None better.
  8. Can't listen to them since the quack played them during my last colonoscopy.
  9. Oops. I seem to have another Spector. Best bring it along.

  11. [quote name='JapanAxe' timestamp='1405429913' post='2501810'] You'd be surprised - what seems unexceptional to one person might be fascinating to another. Plus, people always like to compare, in which case the 'uninteresting' bass or amp becomes a handy bench-mark. Also I venture to suggest that [i]you[/i] are unique. These bash thingies are mainly about meeting people. So yes, please come if you can [/quote] Totally. Last one I attended, my beater P-bass was used to compare the amps. I only finished wiring it up that morning
  12. Reckon. I'm looking to snap the stock neck as an excuse to get a Status on it. Thanks for the invite btw mate, will be good to catch up with you guys
  13. Gwarn then, I'm in. Will bring an eclectic mix of poorly set up / noisy junk that is unchanged (and largely unused) from last time. Some of it may even work. The P-bass and pedal board do and that's all that really matters Will try once again to steal Nik's BC Rich.
  14. Pleasure mate, good to see you.
  15. A heads up for those coming to terms with the narrow B string slot on older Spector 5 bridges. [url="http://www.firstlinemusic.co.uk/"]First Line Music[/url], the UK Spector distributor are now bringing Spector bass strings into the UK. They have a tapered B [s][and maybe E][/s]. 5 string sets are available in nickel or stainless but only offer one gauge. It's the proper gauge though - .045 .065 .085 .105 .130 Fly safe.
  16. [quote name='jonthebass' post='1043403' date='Dec 1 2010, 09:53 AM']Cheers Johnny! BTW my rattling bass turned out to be the E tuner & possibly 1 other...[/quote] Haha, FFS. Least it's sorted mate, lovely bass. And the best head in Christendom.
  17. Perfect rig. [quote name='jonthebass' post='1039737' date='Nov 28 2010, 11:19 AM'][/quote]
  18. [quote name='obbm' post='1038379' date='Nov 26 2010, 10:35 PM']I don't see an Orange AD200B on the list. Should I bring mine?[/quote] Yes please Mr.
  19. You're making way for that new Genz innit?
  20. [quote name='charic' post='1038137' date='Nov 26 2010, 06:59 PM']I'm definately coming... Once i can find the postcode of the place it held in the thread![/quote] Venue: Jubilee High School, Surrey, School Lane, Addlestone, Surrey KT15 1TE
  21. Down to more serious matters, who's running the bar?
