Total Watts

  1. Fiddled about with the john east pre in there. Adjusted the treble freq and bass higher + lower frequencies it boosts/cuts. Also changed the default "middle position" nature from "slightly scooped" to "flat" mode. Plugged it into my Hexa Valve. Oh boy. RETRACTED.
  2. No longer on hold. And hesitating to sell.
  3. Might this be it, @ped? FFFFFF33 looks like two digits too many? The search field inside the div has a transparent background.
  4. 17mm seems about right. Same as my Warwick and EBMM Stingray. It is the first version of the five string model, simply named Sonus 5.
  5. I cerainly hope so @Al Krow. Infection rates here in NL have been on a steep decline here since the massive spike happening after lifting restrictions. I sincerely hope we all can return to the normal normal again soon. Over here multi day venues are still blocked so no large festivala. We're still expected to keep a 1.5m distance at all times. And in public transport wear a face mask.
  6. No introduction needed I think? Massive sounding cab in great shape! Local pickup only. Looking to fetch 450 euro for it. I only ever used it in our rehearsal room due to its weight - I am not a tall man so dragging my Barefaced cab around instead. Amplifier not included, that one is already sold. 😁
  7. Selling simply because its time has come. I always bring my Fodera NYC Empire and sometimes the Sadowsky or Stingray neckthru when playing a fiver. Bass is completely original except for the pre-amp which I upgraded to a John East Uni-pre 4 knob. Original Bartolini pre was broken when I bought the instrument. Balance knob is wired reverse like it is on Sadowsky basses. This is due to one pickup having quite short pickup wires for the wire routing. The Sonus has a somewhat thicker neck than more modern copies but not baseball bat thick. Very low action, no truss rod and not needing one. Scale is 34". Will ship anywhere in Europe, hardcase included. Selling to UK is a nono due to brexit unless you want to pay a lot of taxes. Top pic is overly shiny, bottom one more truthful. Beast of a bass! Looking to fetch 1900 euros for it + P&P. Local pickup in Hoorn, the Netherlands also possible. Cheers, Marco
  8. I have one and am looking to sell it. Might just list it on the forum later on. Sounds absolutely awesome but I can't get it out of the car by myself. Besides that, my stack of two Trace Elliot 2x8 cabs is just as loud. Faitalpro speakers kick donkey. Besides that, I also have a Barefaced Big Twin II. TOO - MUCH - GEAR
  9. You people are all twisted knobs. 😎
  10. Balance pot is reversed on all Sadowsky basses. Don't know why but it doesn't bother me. I actually did the same with my Zon Sonus because one pickup has short wires and this was the easy option.
  11. I wrote a review (mesa prodigy) and in memoriam about chris squire for that mag. Was promised a free sub as I didn't need or want payment. I never received the sub or a single copy of the mag and had to buy copies with my own articles in order to see them. Am still whizzed off about that. Worst magazine on the planet run by a totally incompetent publishing company. But interested in your findings about the chinese Sadowsky nonetheless.
  12. I owned both Darkglass compressors but chose to keep the Cali76cb as it adds some lovely texture the DG pedals seemed to lack. My tone gets more grippy in the mix with it without sounding obviously different. For some extra gravy in the mix I can use the EHX Black Finger, combining it with the Cali gets me the Punch from 1176 plus the warmth from LA-2A like compression. I seldomly require both compressors though. The Finger works especially well with Pbass like tone, the Cali with just about everything.
  13. The Fusion S 1x12 combo indeed has cooling that only comes on when needed. My experience with this reactive kind of cooling though with most bass amps is that the fans starting/stopping is actually more annoying then a fan spinning at the same speed constantly. This made me stop using my Trace Elliot Elf and use bigger amps with cooling that just flows constantly.
